Teaser Tuesday with Heart Sick

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
  • 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 their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
I was in need of something out of my usual genre. And wow, did I find it. HEART SICK is the first book in Chelsea Cain's Archie Sheridan and Gretchen Lowell series. A crime thriller with a female serial killer, and Gretchen is as frightening as they come. The book hooked me immediately with the first short chapter. I was blown away.
Here's your teaser:
Archie doesn't know for sure that it's her until that moment. There is a dull bloom of warmth in his spine, his vision blurs, and then he knows that Gretchen Lowell is the killer. (page 1)

  7. About every 6 or so books I insert one that is outside my usual reading genre. It's always kind of fun, isn't it? Thanks for sharing.

  11. Ooh, intriguing snippet! And there's a female serial killer on top of that? Fun! (I probably shouldn't think of that as fun, eh? Oh, well! XD)
