Teaser Tuesdays #75: The Amateurs by Sara Shepard



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

Today’s Teaser Tuesday:

Book cover for The Amateurs by Sara ShepardTitle: The Amateurs (The Amateurs #1)
Author: Sara Shepard
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Publication Date: November 1, 2016
Summary (from Goodreads): As soon as Seneca Frazier sees the post on the Case Not Closed website about Helena Kelly, she’s hooked. Helena’s high-profile disappearance five years earlier is the one that originally got Seneca addicted to true crime. It’s the reason she’s a member of the site in the first place.

So when Maddy Wright, her best friend from the CNC site, invites Seneca to spend spring break in Connecticut looking into the cold case, she immediately packs her bag. But the moment she steps off the train in trendy, glamorous Dexby, things begin to go wrong. Maddy is nothing like she expected, and Helena’s sister, Aerin Kelly, seems completely hostile and totally uninterested in helping with their murder investigation.

But when Brett, another super user from the site, joins Seneca and Maddy in Dexby, Aerin starts to come around. The police must have missed something, and someone in Dexby definitely has information they’ve been keeping quiet.

As Seneca, Brett, Maddy, and Aerin begin to unravel dark secrets and shocking betrayals about the people closest to them, they seem to be on the murderer’s trail at last. But somewhere nearby the killer is watching . . . ready to do whatever it takes to make sure the truth stays buried.

I just started this book and am enjoying it so far! Okay, I admit, I haven’t read the Pretty Little Liars books or seen the show, so this is my first experience with Sara Shepard. I am excited to keep reading, however, since putting this book down to write this post was very difficult.

Here is the teaser:

“It wouldn’t solve all her problems. It wouldn’t solve all her mysteries. But it was a start.”

    I haven’t read or watched them either, so don’t feel bad. I am actually pretty interested in this one. It sounds like it could be a great read. And obviously the author is a really great one. Very well loved!
