Teaser Tuesday: Dark Road Home by Anna Carlisle

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. 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!

Mr. Parker seemed destined to be a bachelor forever, and Gin's parents seemed content to be the shore on which he perpetually washed up.
My teaser comes from The Dark Road Home by Anna Carlisle. I got this eARC from NetGalley. Here is the description from Amazon:
The summer after she graduated from high school, Gin Sullivan's little sister Lily went missing. Her family fell apart, not to mention her relationship with her high school sweetheart, Jake. Now, almost twenty years later, Gin is living in Chicago and working as a medical examiner when she gets the call. A body's been found in the woods outside her small hometown. It could be her sister. After all these years, it's time for Gin to go home and face the demons she tried to leave behind.

Confronting your past is never easy, but for Gin it also means confronting Jake, who was the prime suspect in Lily's disappearance. To find an answer to the question of what happened to her sister that fateful summer, Gin makes the difficult decision to use her talents as a medical examiner to help the police investigation. But as Gin gets deeper into the case, she uncovers a shocking truth that could change everything, if it doesn't destroy what's left of her and her family first.

Buried secrets come to light in Dark Road Home, Anna Carlisle's sharp and simmering debut mystery.

  2. I love this kind of story! Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog. Enjoy!

  3. Even before reading the synopsis, the cover in conjunction with the teaser are definitely gripping and appealing. My imagination is taking me to a thrilling expectation, already.

  4. This certainly sounds interesting - I love the tease. Is the writing style like that all the way through and are you enjoying it? My TT this week is somewhat different...

  5. I bet Mr. Parker did it. Or maybe one of her parents.

  6. OOoh intriguing! That's a new to me one!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  7. This sounds really good. I want to know more about Gin and Jake and what happened all those years ago . . . Adding this to my wish list.

  8. I love thrillers like this one! I think that the entire concept is so intriguing and I wonder if this Mr. Parker plays a role in her sister's disappearance somehow. Enjoy! :)

  9. I LOLed at the teaser, which seems quite at odds with the book (or at least the description of the book).
