Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Purple Booker. If you want to join in grab your current read, flick to a random page, select two sentences (without spoilers) and share them in a blog post or in the comments of The Purple Booker.
I really, really want to post a teaser from Holly Bourne’s new book How Do You Like Me Now? but as it’s not out till June next year I probably shouldn’t which leaves me a bit stuck as I’m not actually reading anything *runs off to hunt bookshelves*.
OK I never posted a teaser from Killman Creek by Rachel Caine so let’s go with that. This is the follow up to the brilliant Stillhouse Lake and is just as good. I won’t say much about it due to spoilers (and I wouldn’t advise reading the blurb) but my teaser is spoiler free and will possibly make you really paranoid about social media.
You never understand how vulnerable you are in this age of social media until something breaks against you, and then . . . then it’s too late. You can shut down Facebook, Twitter, Instagram; you can change your phone number and your email. Move to new places. But for dedicated tormentors, that isn’t a barrier. It’s a challenge.
~ Loc. 2051 Killman Creek by Rachel Caine
Every time Gwen closed her eyes, she saw him in her nightmares. Now her eyes are open, and he’s not going away.
Gwen Proctor won the battle to save her kids from her ex-husband, serial killer Melvin Royal, and his league of psychotic accomplices. But the war isn’t over. Not since Melvin broke out of prison. Not since she received a chilling text…
You’re not safe anywhere now.
Her refuge at Stillhouse Lake has become a trap. Gwen leaves her children in the protective custody of a fortified, well-armed neighbor. Now, with the help of Sam Cade, brother of one of Melvin’s victims, Gwen is going hunting. She’s learned how from one of the sickest killers alive.
But what she’s up against is beyond anything she feared—a sophisticated and savage mind game calculated to destroy her. As trust beyond her small circle of friends begins to vanish, Gwen has only fury and vengeance to believe in as she closes in on her prey. And sure as the night, one of them will die.
