Teaser Tuesdays (56)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Books and a Beat. In this meme, we grab our current read, open it to a random page and share two teaser sentences from somewhere on that page with our readers.

Here is my teaser:

“Well.” His voice dropped to a whisper. “I heard someone died down there. A suicide.”
The lift reached the third floor and the doors pinged open. Matt’s phone rang and he mouthed an apology as he took the call.
Sophie headed back towards her desk. Someone had committed suicide in the library? She shivered, no longer keen to go down there.

    Great teaser. It sounds nicely scary. My teaser this week is from The Widower’s Wife by Cate Holahan – a mystery from my review stack. Happy reading!

  5. Oh yeah, I want to read this one. Love the cover too.

  6. This one sounds like there’s plenty of narrative tension. And it must be a plus to be set in a library – yes, I’d definitely read on. This is my TT… https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2016/08/02/teaser-tuesday-2nd-august-2016/

  7. That’s a great cover. Looks like the library is in a basement! Sounds scary.

  9. So many scary teasers this week! I think that the mystery of why the person committed suicide seems intriguing and would definitely make me want to read more. Thank you far sharing this one!

  10. Excellent teaser. I’d like this one.

  11. At least it’s not a murder?
    Sounds like there’s going to be more than a few scary moments in the book!
