‘Sea Of Regret’ by Carolyn Rose

Icon image for Teaser Tuesdays postsTeaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by …

MizB of ‘Should Be Reading’.

Anyone can take part, by just doing the following:

Grab your current read.

  1. Open to a random page.
  2. Share a couple of  “teaser” sentences, from somewhere on that page.
  3. Be careful not to share “spoiler” sentences.
  4. Remember to share the title and author too.
  5. Head on over to ‘should be reading’ and leave a link to your post, so that others can share it and you can share other people’s.

It would be great if you then decided to leave a comment for MizB, as we all like to receive them and are interested in sharing your thoughts.


My teaser lines are taken from the 39% page mark of my Kindle copy.

So as not to show any spoilers I have not included a synopsis, however, if you want to find out more about the story, just click on the book image, or to read more about both book and author go here

If you don’t really want to read any major spoilers, then you can tease yourself a little more, by reading the first few lines of the story … here.

Police Chief Sam Lowell scratched the gray whiskers on the blade of his jaw. The whisk of sound, like insects in dry grass, made Kate glance at her bare toes to make sure nothing was crawling toward them.

Lowell smiled and squinted at the paper. His eyebrows advanced on each other like warring wooly caterpillars until he pulled his half-glasses from the holster clipped to his belt and slid them on.

As this was an author invitation to read and review, a kindle download of ‘Sea Of Regret’ was gifted to me free of charge, by its author Carolyn J. Rose.

This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog articles I may post. Any thoughts or comments will be my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

  • Great teasers Yvonne, interesting imagery. I hope you enjoy Sea of Regret. You’ve inspired me to do a Teaser Tuesday post this week as well 🙂

    • Hi Naida,

      I do think that ‘Sea Of Regret’ has some excellent descriptive writing. As you can see, I am still not that far into the book, however the fantastic words and passages have taken me right into the action, setting the scene for the horrors which I am sure are unfolding little by little.

      It will be great to have you on board ‘Teaser Tuesday’. I don’t contribute every week, however it is an excellent meme and very well supported. MizB doesn’t generally put up the link until Tuesday morning US time and as that is already half way through my UK day and I am generally at work then, I always tend to post on a Monday evening and pop back later on Tuesday, just to add the link.

      Hope you have as much fun with your teaser lines, as I do!

    • Hi Kelley,

      Thank you for deciding to visit Fiction Books today. I love ‘meeting’ new people, so your visits will always be welcome and your comments always appreciated.

      For me, finding a good suspense story which has such descriptive passages of writing, is a real bonus. Don’t get me wrong, I do love a good gut-wrenching, blood soaked thriller as well, however the nuances of a good plot building, character driven mystery, is just as enticing for me.

      I hope that you are enjoying a good week so far.

    • Hi Nikki,

      I am actually really enjoying this book so far and although I am still only about half way through, the suspense is building nicely and I am anticipating that the final showdown is going to be explosive!

      Neither this, nor the first book in the series, ‘An Uncertain Refuge’, are particularly fast paced, however Carolyn has a real skill in plot and character building narrative, which more than makes up for that for me!

      Thanks for taking the time to stop by and I hope that your week is going well so far.

    • Hi Carolyn,

      Thanks for taking the time to check out the post and leave comment, it is much appreciated.

      ‘Sea Of Regret’ is turning into a more than worthy sequel to ‘An Uncertain Refuge’, in fact, in some respects, it might even be a little better.

      Have a great weekend.
