Teaser Tuesday: Sweet Unrest by Lisa Maxwell {93}

Title: Sweet Unrest
Author: Lisa Maxwell
Release date: October 8, 2014
Lucy Aimes has always been practical. But try as she might, she can’t come up with a logical explanation for the recurring dreams that have always haunted her. Dark dreams. Dreams of a long-ago place filled with people she shouldn’t know…but does.

When her family moves to a New Orleans plantation, Lucy’s dreams become more intense, and her search for answers draws her reluctantly into the old city’s world of Voodoo and mysticism. There, Lucy finds Alex, a mysterious boy who behaves as if they’ve known each other forever. Lucy knows Alex is hiding something, and her rational side doesn’t want to be drawn to him. But she is.

As she tries to uncover Alex’s secrets, a killer strikes close to home, and Lucy finds herself ensnared in a century-old vendetta. With the lives of everyone she loves in danger, Lucy will have to unravel the mystery of her dreams before it all comes to a deadly finish.

My teaser, from 5% in the egalley:
I'm falling, sinking.

There's something heavy dragging at me, pulling me down into the darkness. The water is cold around me, filled with dirt and the muck of something putrid that makes the dirt seem almost clean. I struggle up, frantic to get to the surface, but every move brings pain. Sharp. Ripping pain. So sudden and absolute that I almost gasp. Almost, because the moment my mouth opens to scream, the cold, fetid water rushes in, and I clamp down on instinct.
The blog tour for this stops by on Friday, so I'm reading for my review. So far, I really like it! I'm such a sucker for anything based in New Orleans. :D

I'll be visiting around and visiting back, so leave me links to your teasers! :) Happy Tuesday!
