Teaser Tuesday

If you haven’t read Karin Slaughter you need to jump on you Kindle account and order the first book of her Grant County series stat. On second thought, maybe not. If you are a reader that likes to connect with the characters, watch how an author can really develop them, get you really emotionally invested in them, then she might ruin books for you.

Not only does she develop characters to the point that you feel like you know them in real life, her attention to detail is second to one. The twists, turns and crimes take you where no movie ever could. If you decide to go against my more thought out advice and read her work, don’t say I didn’t warn you. You may have a hard time reading crime and thriller novels by other authors. I know I only read them for a week once a year, when her latest novel is released.

This Teaser Tuesday’s excerpt is from her 2014 stand alone novel Cop Town. If you haven’t read her work, this is a great one to get to know her writing. Once you order it, do yourself a favor and grab Blindsighted the first novel of her Grant County series. You have 6 novels in the Grant County series and another 10 in the Will Trent series. Make sure to check out the list with the order of her books because it does matter what order you read them in, the crimes stand alone but the characters grow from one novel to the next. You wouldn’t want to spoil something because you read them in the wrong order.

Here is a teaser from Cop Town:

This was the third time today that somebody had thrown that in her face.

“You lied about what happened because you didn’t wanna admit that you froze, which makes you a coward who let a cop killer get away.”

If you haven’t checked out the February Love Is In Da Blog challenge, now is a good time to jump in. You don’t have to write daily but you won’t regret it if you do. Start small and just write a Teaser Tuesday post of your own and see what you think. Make sure to let me know so I can check it out. Β Have you read any of Karin Slaughter’s novels? Do you love her? Of course you do, what a silly question. How long does it take you to read her novels? Hours, days? I know not longer than a week. Maybe we should start a petition to get her to release more than one book a year, the torture of waiting 51 weeks every time I read her latest novel is just too much!

      1. I thought I had read cop town but when I opened it up to do teaser Tueaday my kindle all said I was only 27% through it. My mom and I share an account though so I’m pretty sure I’m still waiting for her to read it so we can discuss it. It’s not Will so it wasn’t a drop everything and read situation. It was good but I’m dying for a dose of Will and Karin is just making me suffer for no good reason 😦

      2. I didn’t care for pretty girls too much. Not that it was bad but I’m pouting and I want to read about Will not that stand alone, I got the other one that came before pretty girls (can’t remember the name and I’m not bothered to look) and I didn’t finish it yet.

      3. I agree. I only rated Pretty Girls 3 out of 5 on Goodreads. And I haven’t read the one before it either (Blonde Hair, Blue Eyes … I had to check her website lol). Perhaps you’re right … We should petition her to bring back Will !

  1. I think when my kids grow up, when I’m done blogging, and when I’m done doing my fitness consulting I will once again be able to read. I have tried, but since I graduated from college any down time just puts me to sleep if I open a book. The last book I read was 50 shades of Gray and that was when I was pregnant with my daughter over 3 years ago! πŸ˜‰ I need to check out your “lovin” post to see what that’s all about too. πŸ™‚
