Teaser Tuesday: Swimming At Night

Hello and welcome to one of my favorite weekly book events, Teaser Tuesday, hosted each week by Should Be Reading. We share a few teaser sentences from a random page in our current reads. It's a great way to get a peek inside some new-to-you books!

Today I'm taking my teasers from a debut novel by Lucy Clarke. SWIMMING AT NIGHT is the story of two sisters, one of which is trying to piece together the events that led to her younger sister's death in Bali while on a world trip with a friend. The trouble is, Bali was not on the itinerary. Using her sister's travel journal, she vows to find out what really happened and why it is being ruled a suicide, which she doesn't accept at all.

My Teaser:

She hadn't told him of the hateful, shameful things she'd said.  She hadn't told him about the anger and hurt that had been festering between them for months.  She hadn't told Ed any of this because there are some currents in a relationship between sisters that are so dark and run so deep, it's better for the people swimming on the surface never to know what's beneath. ~ Loc 199 Kindle


  1. I like this teaser. That cover is so mysterious, too.

  2. Intriguing teaser. Not having sisters, I'm not sure I can identify. Come see my teasers for Sharp by Alex Hughes and The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd. Happy reading!

  3. A deep opener....and it drew me in. Thanks for sharing; and thanks for visiting my blog.

  4. A mystery in an exotic location - just my type of book!

  5. Combined with the description I want to know more and would keep on reading.

  6. Oh wow, great teaser -- this sounds like a great read! Thanks for stopping by my teaser post, too!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I look forward to hearing from you again soon!
