Teaser Tuesday (June 10)

Teasing Tuesday CB

Teaser Tuesdays 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

• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

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

My Teaser this week is from This Is The Water by Yannick Murphy

This Is The Water


This is a novel about a woman. About a mother. About a marriage.
About a murder.
In the brightly lit public pool the killer swims and watches. Amongst the mothers cheering on their swim team daughters is Annie. Watching her two girls race, she’s thinking of other things. Her husband’s emotional distance. Her lost brother. The man she’s drawn to.
Then she learns a terrible secret. Now her everyday cares and concerns seem meaningless. Annie knows she has to act. Above all, she must protect her children.
Compulsively readable, it takes readers on a journey where none could guess the final outcome. Amazon

My Teaser

He has lines in his forehead so deep they could serve as stairs for a small doll. He has a washer and dryer in his kitchen, and when he eats meals he usually starts a load to wash or dry so that he has the sound of one of the machine’s drums turning to keep him company. As a killer, he has pride, he thinks, and does not want to be caught, the way so many experts think serial killers want to be.

    1. When I chose this I didn’t realise how strange it is in the US (the book’s setting) to have a washer and dryer in the kitchen. He is definitely creepy but most of the action is viewed through one of the swim team mum’s thoughts. Thanks for visiting and leaving your link.


    1. I really wasn’t sure about the style of writing at first although the imagery is fantastic but it has really grown on me. I’m about half-way through and itching to get back to find out what will happen next.


  1. I really like the Teaser! He seems to just be a regular, slightly lonely, guy until we hit the killer line. Sounds really interesting and the cover is great! Thanks for sharing 🙂
