Teaser Tuesday: Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To 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!

Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins.

Sweet Peril – HarperTeen

I shuddered. Couldn’t Dad somehow teach them to knock? Anything less jarring than dive-bombing toward my face unexpectedly.
— Chapter 7

“As if you don’t know.” Ginger’s eyes narrowed with distrust as she studied me.
My stomach compacted into a firm ball of nerves. “I don’t know.” I looked over at Marna. “Tell me.”
— Chapter 8

Didn’t I recently say something about sequels and final books? So no worries there are enough unfinished series to go around. At the very least this one is straight forward and doesn’t for example change its main characters or locations ... well, technically speaking it probably does. It  suffers a little from what I call second-book-syndrome-of-absent-guy-and-possible-replacement-guy. Only not as badly as other series, and I also don’t want to smack the heroine around the head on a constant basis. I’m about a third in now, but I really hope that things will pick up soon, otherwise this could become a little tedious.

Have you been disappointed in a sequel recently? Sound off about it in comments and share your current read.

'second-book-syndrome-of-absent-guy-and-possible-replacement-guy' is why I haven't gotten to this one yet, although I liked the first book. I'll probably tackle it this winter. :-) Cool teasers!

Interesting teasers! Who or what is dive-bombing toward her face? My TT comes from the book Scare The Light Away: http://meandu-justthinking.blogspot.ca/2013/07/teaser-tuesdays_16.html

Intriguing teasers - but I haven't read the first book in this series yet. My teasers this week are from Shelter by Harlan Coben and Dick Francis's Bloodline by Felix Francis. Happy reading!

I have this on my TBR, I'm sad to hear that it has 2nd book syndrome though.
