Teaser Tuesday: The May Queen Murders by Sarah Jude

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. 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:
"It ain't the picture." I tamped the grains of glass into the dustpan and waited until another student distracted Mrs. Fenton before I whispered to Rook, "Mamie says a picture that falls without warnin' brings death in the mornin'."
This week I am spotlighting The May Queen Murders by Sarah Jude. I got this eARC from Edelweiss. Here is the description from Amazon:
Stay on the roads. Don’t enter the woods. Never go out at night.  
 
Those are the rules in Rowan’s Glen, a remote farming community in the Missouri Ozarks where Ivy Templeton’s family has lived for centuries. It’s an old-fashioned way of life, full of superstition and traditions, and sixteen-year-old Ivy loves it. The other kids at school may think the Glen kids are weird, but Ivy doesn’t care—she has her cousin Heather as her best friend. The two girls share everything with each other—or so Ivy thinks. When Heather goes missing after a May Day celebration, Ivy discovers that both her best friend and her beloved hometown are as full of secrets as the woods that surround them.
