Tuesday Teasers: "Catch Me" and "The List"


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should  Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought  I  would play for fun! Just do the following
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on  that page
  • 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, too, so that other TT participants can  add the book to their TBR  Lists  if they  like your teaser.   
Karen's:
Four days from now, I'm expecting to be murdered. I've read that you're one of the best homicide detectives in the city, so I'd like you to handle the investigation.
From page 36 of Catch Me by Lisa Gardner.

Gerard's:
"Do me a favor. Write UGLY as big as you can across my forehead."
From page 47 of The List by Siobhan Vivian.

  4. The "Ugly" comment feels a bit bitter... But the first teaser was great! I wonder why he assumes he will be murdered...

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    1. It's actually a she who thinks she will be murdered because her two best friends were murdered on the same day but a year apart and that day is coming up.

  6. Ugly? That'll get some interesting responses.

    Having your own murder investigated sounds intriguing.

    Great teasers, both.

  12. As usual, I enjoyed both of your teasers.
    Karen: What an unusual plot idea! I'd read this book just to find out how the author handled this situation.
    Gerard: What a great visual. I'm wondering what happened to make the character say that.
    My teaser is from A DIFFERENT KIND OF FOREVER Sandy's Teaser
