Teaser Tuesday: Dark Turns by Cate Holahan

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The sun beat down on her bare neck like a broiler. She was baking in her sweater. Still, she didn't remove the cotton pullover. The microfiber tank beneath hugged her body, and while form-fitting attire was appropriate for the studio, it wasn't for a sit-down with the big boss.
This week my teaser comes from Dark Turns by Cate Holahan. I got this mystery from NetGalley for review. Here is the description from Amazon:
Nia Washington is an incredibly talented ballerina. She fought her way up from the streets and was nearing the pinnacle of her profession when an injury and a broken heart derailed her career. Taking a temporary job at an elite boarding school was supposed to give her time to nurse both body and soul. It was supposed to be a safe place to launch a triumphant comeback. It is anything but.

Shortly after she arrives at the beautiful lakeside campus, she discovers the body of a murdered student, and her life takes a truly dark turn. It’s not long before she is drawn into a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse with a ruthless killer. And Nia isn't the only target. She must use all of her street smarts to protect her dancers, save a wrongfully accused student, and rescue the man she loves.

A stunning and suspenseful tale of passion and betrayal, Cate Holahan's Dark Turns will take readers deep into the mind of a murderer and the woman who must put an end to the killing.


  1. OOh intriguing teaser! Very mysterious!

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  2. I hope you like this one. I have it on my wish list. Sounds good!

  3. Aren't dress codes a pain? And everytime someone tells me there isn't a dress code, in the next breath they well tell me that what I'm wearing doesn't cut it.

  4. Hi Kathy,

    I too have this one on my 'Want To Read' list and after reading your full post, I have already gone across to NetGalley and requested a review copy.

    I tend to be quite a lot like the individual in your teaser. It takes a lot for me to remove clothing in the summer ... just in case I burn and because I don't look so great when I'm not totally covered up.

    Nia definitely wouldn't have that problem if she had been a ballerina, so I'm guessing it must be something to do with her injury?

    Thanks for sharing and for the recommendation :)


  5. OK. Now I have to find out what happens. Here's my teaser: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-115
