Teaser Tuesday: The Fifth Petal

This week my teaser lines come from The Fifth Petal, by Brunonia Barry (Crown, January 2017). This snippet comes from page 2 of the book's Prologue (Location 106 of the Kindle edition):
One of the officers at the scene had asked the older nun why she'd waited to make the 911 call when the screaming continued into the night. "It was Halloween in Salem," she said, sadly. "It would have been strange if we didn't hear screaming."
I've always wanted to see Salem — the Massachusetts town where a number of people were tried and executed for witchcraft back in the 17th Century. But this book is making me think maybe Halloween is not the best of times for a visit.

This is a book I've been trying to get to for several months now. Finally getting started and really enjoying it so far. Hope to finish it up this week.

If you'd like to see more Teaser Tuesday offerings, or do some teasing yourself, just head on over to The Purple Booker and leave your link. And please feel free to leave me a link to your Teaser Tuesday post in your comment here.


  1. I bought this a few weeks ago and can't wait to start it!

  2. Now you have piqued my curiosity. Salem, Massachusetts...definitely a place where dark things happened.

    Pretty cover, to cover up the dark intensity, I'm sure. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “VIVIAN IN RED”

  3. I'm curious about who's screaming and why, as well as the significance of the five petals. Sounds like a story I'd enjoy reading.
    My Tuesday post features Kiss the Girls and Make Them Die.

  4. Oooh! This has me curious too! Thank you for sharing!
    My Teaser is from: Seeds of Eden by A.P. Watson
