Teaser Tuesdays: The Book of Speculation

This week my teaser lines come from The Book of Speculation, the debut novel by Erika Swyler (St. Martin's Press, June 2015). Please note that they come from an advance reader's copy of the book, and might be slightly different in the published version.
They die on the twenty-fourth, all the women, Mom's relatives. They all drowned and they drowned on July twenty-fourth.
These really were the first lines that caught my eye as I skimmed through my copy of the book -- and they definitely had me immediately interested. Hoping to get a review of this one posted very soon.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Jenn at A Daily Rhythm. If you'd like to read more teasers, or take part yourself, just head on over to her blog.

And please feel free to leave me a link to your Teaser Tuesday post in your comment here.


  1. Sounds like more than coincidence going on here...a little spooky! Thanks for sharing...I've been noticing this one around.

    And thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. Hmm...Maybe when I get finished with "The Winter People" I will check this one out. Not sure if I am good with scary books.

  3. They've got me hooked, too. I gotta wonder why they all die then.

  4. I can see why those words caught your eye. Mine: Inferno by Dan Brown

  5. Oh that's creepy. Why did they all die?

  6. Okay ... that just totally gave me all sorts of goosebumps.


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
