#TeaserTuesday and Intro: Pack of Lies by Lucy Felthouse #mystery @cw1985


Welcome to Teaser Tuesday hosted by Should Be Reading and First Chapter, First Paragraph hosted by Bibliophile By The Sea.

This week I'm featuring Pack of Lies by +Lucy Felthouse I've read this book and enjoyed it very much. This is a paranormal mystery and you can read my review here.

Here' the opener:
As Matthew and Isaac Adams opened the front door to their house, the telephone started ringing. Matthew sighed. “Typical. No rest for the wicked. I’ll answer it, you go and get ready for work.”
Isaac nodded and headed off to do as his brother advised.
Matthew, the older of the two, walked toward the ringing phone and snatched it off the hook. Then, remembering that the person on the other end of the line would have no idea what a rough night he’d just had, he made the effort to inject some politeness into his tone.
“Hello? Adams residence.” Isaac had told him time and time again that the last part about the  residence was old-fashioned, that people didn’t say that anymore, but Matthew couldn’t seem to shake it.
“Hello, Matthew? It’s Richard.” The village vicar’s voice, even though he’d only spoken four words, sounded strained, almost panicked. “You boys just get back?”
“Yeah, a moment ago. Why, what’s up?”
“I, uh… I got a call. A dead sheep has been found up on the moor. Not just dead. Mutilated. Like a wild animal attack.”


Here's the teaser:

An unpleasant feeling wormed its way under Matthew’s skin and his stomach flipped. “Oh?” He paused, then figured he had nothing to gain by not saying the next words he wanted to. “You don’t think it was us?”

What do you think? What are you reading this week? Leave me a comment and I'll stop by shortly.
I'm glad it's September and I can start getting some of my life back with the kids back in school tomorrow.
Love,
Kay xx

  1. You chose a good teaser. It's not a genre I'm a big fan of, but the intro sounds interesting.

    Thanks for visiting Write Note Reviews.

  3. Mutilated animals and that cover tells me it's not for me, but I hope I'm wrong and you enjoy it Kay.

    Thanks for joining us this week.

  13. Before cellphones and when home telephone lines were the only source of communication, I used to answer the phone in the same like manner, it was so hilarious :)

  14. Werewolves? I'd probably read the book for the cover alone, but it sounds like a good read!

  15. Sounds like a good mystery, although, based on the cover, it's probably a good romance as well. Enjoy.
