Teaser Tuesday: Sleep with the Lights On by Maggie Shayne

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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Being able to see was so damn good, I almost started believing my own bull. I mean, really, you've gotta give me some leeway here. After being blind for twenty years, getting your sight back is a pretty big deal, and even the bitchiest of skeptical bitches would start to waver a little.
This week my teaser comes from Sleep with the Lights On by Maggie Shayne. I chose this 2013 release from the Amazon Vine program. Here is the description:
Through the eyes of a killer… 

Rachel de Luca has found incredible success writing self-help books. But her own blindness and the fact that her troubled brother has gone missing have convinced her that positive thinking is nothing but bull.

Her cynicism wavers when a cornea transplant restores her sight. The new eyes seem to give her new life, until they prove too good to be true and she starts seeing terrifying visions of brutal murders—crimes she soon learns are all too real.

Detective Mason Brown's own brother recently died, leaving behind a horrific secret. In atonement, Mason donated his brother's organs, though he's kept the fact quiet. Now he wants to help Rachel find her brother, but when he discovers the shocking connection between her visions and his own brother, he suddenly has to do everything in his power to save her from a predator who is somehow still hunting from beyond the grave.
Is paranormal thriller a genre?


  1. I wonder what's going on that makes her so defensive. And the description is chilling.

  5. Great teaser -- hope this is as good as it sounds! Mine: Think Twice by Lisa Scottoline.

  6. Seems like it would be overwhelming to suddenly be able to see. Then add in visions of murders and that must be terrifying! Sounds like a terrific premise for a gripping story.
