Teaser Tuesday - LISTEN

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!

My Teaser for the Week:

"We're looking into all the angles, including whether or not Frank knew Angela was seeing someone."
"Just find out who killed him, okay?"
Page 285, LISTEN by Rene Gutteridge

Taken from the back of the book:
SOMEONE IS LISTENING . . .
The quaint, close-knit community of Marlo was the ideal place to live . . . until someone started posting private conversations online for everyone to read, word for word. Now it's neighbor against neighbor, friend against friend, as careless comments and hurtful accusations turn the town upside down. Violence and paranoia escalate, and the police scramble to find the person responsible before more people get hurt - or even killed.


But what responsibility do the residents of Marlo have for the words they say when they think no one is listening?

Really makes you think about what you are saying when you think no one is listening :) Just started the book. It's a bit slow for me, but I'm determined to finish it. Hoping it picks up soon.

What are you reading today?
