Teaser Tuesday: Lock & Mori by Heather W. Petty

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Teaser:
I jolted when the shadowed figure spoke, then again when I realized who was speaking. Hearing Sherlock's voice out in the middle of Regent's Park was so surreal, it took me a moment to realize I wasn't just imagining it.
This week my teaser comes from Lock & Mori by Heather W. Petty. I am a sucker for anything Sherlock Holmes and got this eARC from Edelweiss. Here is the description from Amazon:
In modern-day London, two brilliant high school students—one Sherlock Holmes and a Miss James “Mori” Moriarty—meet. A murder will bring them together. The truth very well might drive them apart.

Before they were mortal enemies, they were much more…

FACT: Someone has been murdered in London’s Regent’s Park. The police have no leads.

FACT: Miss James “Mori” Moriarty and Sherlock “Lock” Holmes should be hitting the books on a school night. Instead, they are out crashing a crime scene.

FACT: Lock has challenged Mori to solve the case before he does. Challenge accepted.

FACT: Despite agreeing to Lock’s one rule—they must share every clue with each other—Mori is keeping secrets.

OBSERVATION: Sometimes you can’t trust the people closest to you with matters of the heart. And after this case, Mori may never trust Lock again.

  6. This sounds like a fun modern take on Sherlock Holmes, even though it's a surprise to see Holmes and Moriarty teaming up. That should be fun!
    My Tuesday post features Shadow of the Hawk.
