Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!
I’m so glad for my little MacBook Air! It has been well worth the investment. Yesterday I spent ten hours in the ER (with my son—and yes, he’s okay) and spent much of the time writing on my MacBook Air, and still had over two hours left on the battery when I got home! I turned the screen brightness down when I got to 2.5 hours, to lengthen out the battery life still more, if I needed it. My phone battery crapped out at about 2:00 p.m. All of the walls and brick/concrete made it difficult to get a cell signal most of the time, and the phone was getting hot searching for a signal, battery life spiraling down. Note to self next time I have to head for the Emergency Room: take along a phone charger, and turn it all the way off unless using it.
This week my teaser is from “Tin God (A Southern Mystery) (Delta Crossroads Trilogy #1)” by Stacy Green. So far, it is an engrossing, fast-paced story, and I am enjoying it. Here is a teaser from my current location (23% in, or page 86 of 394):
“I got Lana killed, didn’t I?” Jaymee slumped forward, her head coming to rest on Nick’s chest. Her hair smelled like vanilla, her body hot against his. Her small frame rattled with hoarse sobs as her fisted hands pressed against his stomach.
Tin God, Stacy Green
“Stacy Green has the power to transport readers to a place and time. Whether it’s the sticky heat of a Mississippi summer, or the cold terror of coming face to face with a murderer, her writing stimulates all the senses. TIN GOD is a very satisfying read.” –Bestselling thriller author Rachel Abbott
“Stacy Green has written an emotionally charged, thought-provoking and stunning mystery/suspense that will capture and hold you hostage until the last page is read.” –The Kindle Book Review
The truth can be as deadly as any weapon.
Jaymee Ballard trusted only one person in Roselea,Mississippi with the secret of her lost daughter. When that person is brutally murdered, it leaves her with heartbreak and a slew of unanswered questions. The eerie similarity to a murder of one of Jaymee’s close friends years ago causes her to realize her past has come back to haunt her and may cost her own life.
Years of deception and abuse leave Jaymee with few options and fewer allies. She turns to the widower of her friend—a man struggling with his own demons—to help her find her daughter and identify the killer before he strikes again.
Before all evidence, the truth—and Jaymee’s daughter—are lost.
TIN GOD is a romantic thriller set in a small town. Filled with suspense and featuring a strong female protagonist, this mystery leaves the reader wanting more.
“Stacy Green writes some of the best villains out there while at the same time keeping them well hidden. I highly recommend this book for adults who love suspenseful mystery with a dose of romance and a surprise you don’t see coming. I will definitely be reading more of her stories.” –Open Book Society
