Teaser takes Corey and Abe into the interconnected worlds of private school kids and the runaways who roam Seattle’s streets.
Corey Logan won my affection after reading Inside Passage and I still remain her champion in Teaser.
Corey’s strength, intuition, and hardened past serves her, yet her softness and vulnerability combine to create one worthy protagonist. Corey demonstrates, capabilities and courage again in Teaser. Her dedication to rescue two teens in danger without thought to her own risk reveals her authenticity. Her compassion, altruistic heart and her rugged shell merge to form a formidable force. Abe, his quirky ways, intelligence and unrelenting support of Corey endears him to the reader. Their coupling is verified through their understanding and respect of each other. Where there is one, the other follows, ready to support and face anything together. Two highly intelligent characters besting the bad guy.
The narrative resembles a spider web, many threads form a powerful storyline with one psychotic deranged character at its apex. ‘Teaser’ is loathsome and lethal, you will turn each page fretting unsavory and heinous deeds this undesirable character commits. The plot gains momentum creating a true nail biter until the very end. Clever twists and turns leave the reader in wonderment of how all will play out. A powerful and intricate plot dealing with the sensitive topic of sexual abuse.
Weissbourd’s stellar writing, memorable characters – especially of Corey Logan and an extremely well crafted narrative never disappoint. A plot addressing sexual abuse along with manipulation, secrecy, communication, deception and parenting issues, deliver quite a notable story ably presented.
Teaser is the sequel to Inside Passage, however, it is fine as a standalone. I do recommend reading Inside Passage only adding to your reading enjoyment in both content and authorship.
