Tuesday Teaser

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:   

· Grab your current read
· Open to a random page
· In a comment, share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
· BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
· Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers

Here's mine:

"Jo Beth stood deep in the shadows, knowing they hadn't recognized her yet, watching while they puzzled over a corpse in the middle of nowhere covered with roses.
What she ought to do was go inside and lock her door, but she couldn't make herself leave while that poor, defenseless girl was out there, lying so still and cold on the ground."

-The Tender Mercy of Roses by Anna Michaels


  1. I am addicted to covers, and this one is beautiful. This teaser was great. I will have to look this book up, I haven't heard about it before.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Thanks Neri -- I love the cover too!

  3. Very interesting teaser! It makes me very curious. I think I have this one on my TBR list already, but if I don't, I'll have to add it. I love this cover too! It's strangely calming (the cover, not the teaser). Thanks for sharing!

    A little bit of trivia:

  8. Great teaser. I'm gonna have to look at this book I think my mom would really like it.

  9. Oh, wow. Wondering who the girl is covered with roses. Wondering who put her there in the middle of nowhere.

    Good one!

    thanks for stopping by mine!

  10. Hmm... a corpse. What is that doing in the middle of all this? I wonder.
