Teaser Tuesday – June 22, 2021 #NewBook #TeaserTuesday #bookbloggers @CaneloCrime @LynneJMcEwan #InDarkWater

My Tuesday post where I’ll ‘tease‘ you with the cover, blurb, and first paragraph of one of the advanced reader’s copies from my own TBR.

This book is a title I downloaded from NetGalley.

Today, Tuesday June 22nd, 2021 I want to introduce one of the ARCs on my TBR. This book will be published in just two days time and is the first novel in a proposed crime series featuring Detective Inspector Shona Oliver.Expected publication date is June 24, 2021

Publisher: Canelo Crime

ISBN: 9781800324312 – ASIN: B08ZD85G57 – 274 pages


From the prologue:

“I’m way past scared. Panic’s roaring through my veins like the first fix. Some punters like to see that you’re feart. They get off on it. Sick. Does my head in. But this evil bastard’s not a punter. He’s a psycho, screaming at me to tell him stuff I don’t know.”

The first actual paragraph:

“The call for assistance came into Kirkness Lifeboat Station on the Solway Firth on Saturday morning. Shona Oliver’s pager sounded just as she was placing the teapot down in the dining room. ‘Shout!’ she called to husband Rob. She dashed into the kitchen, gave him a quick kiss, grabbed her car keys and ran from the house. The two B&B guests stared open-mouthed after her.”


Is this a title that you would consider adding to your TBR pile?

Why, or why not?

Let me know in the comments.
