Teaser Tuesday 257: Haunted

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current book or recent read.
* Share a few "teaser" sentences from somewhere in the book.
* 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 and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

This week’s teaser comes from Haunted by Kay Hooper, book 15 in her popular Bishop series. This was a good paranromal thriller -- chapter ten really creeped me out!

The face in the mirror was strange to him, and not only because it was streaked with blood. The blood was the least disconcerting thing he saw, and some deeply buried instinct told him he should have worried a lot more about both the blood and his acceptance of it.

But he didn’t.


Bishop/Special Crimes Unit #15

ow do you make peace with the dead if the dead aren't ready to forgive? In New York Times bestselling author Kay Hooper’s new novel, the answer lies in the twisting shadows of a small town, and its secrets yet unearthed...

When Deacon James’s younger sister Melanie calls him, terrified, he goes to her aid in the small Georgia town of Sociable. What he finds is a scared young woman in the grip of what she insists is a paranormal nightmare—and murder. Two local men have been killed under mysterious circumstances. And Melanie is the prime suspect.

Trinity Nichols left a high-stress job for quiet, small-town life. But news of the murders has left her—and the town—on edge, especially when there is nothing remotely ordinary about how the men died. And her investigation is yielding more than she bargained for, including a group of strangers who have descended on Sociable, some with abilities Trinity finds hard to believe, and agendas she refuses to trust. For some reason, they know a lot more than they should about what’s happening in town. And what’s happening is growing stranger by the minute.

Now Trinity, Deacon, and this odd band of FBI agents must work together to solve a series of disturbances so incredible that Trinity, and the town of Sociable, will be changed forever. She just isn't certain who—or what—will be left standing when it’s all over.

PD: Thanks, I thought it was a great start to the book.

Alice Audrey said...

I'll skip. I get creeped out even without the help of a novel.

Heather said...

Alice: Wimp! I like Kay Hooper's books, but I can't read Stephen King's horror novels. *Shudder*

Alice Audrey said...

People keep telling me to read Kay Hooper. Well... maybe.....

Heather said...

Alice: She writes paranormal thrillers, if that interests you at all. It's best to start at the beginning of the series, though -- IMO.
