#TeaserTuesday # 31 - Jennifer Harlow's Mind Over Monsters

The Book & The Tease

Jennifer Harlow - Mind Over Monsters

This is the first book in Harlow's F.R.E.A.K.S Squad series. I was gifted it a few years back and it's been sitting in my Cloud ever since. I'm not sure why I hadn't gotten around to reading it before now. I guess something else just always bumped it further down the line. I'm finally getting around to it -- much like the recently finished A Pint of Murder -- because one of the next books in the series (# 3, I think) has a Christmasy theme. Right now I'm just past the half-way point and I'm really enjoying it.

4th grade teacher Beatrice Alexander hasn't had an easy life. Stuff moves around when she gets upset. Sometimes the result is humourous (like flying stuffed animals at a sleepover when she was young). Sometimes the result is impressive (like lifting a Hummer SUV and saving one of her students from being roadkill). Sometimes the result is dangerous (like almost killing her own brother). She's approached by Dr George Black about joining the F.R.E.A.K.S. Squad (Federal Response to Extra-sensory And Kindred Supernaturals) -- a secret branch of the FBI.  Being a part of the Squad would help her to hone and utilize her psychokinesis while solving unusual and supernatural crimes -- along with others with varying "gifts." The teaser quote comes from their early conversation (about 4% in) before she agrees ...

  1. I wish when I'd been teaching that I could have moved things around with my mind. Hmm. . . the possibilities! Here's my teaser: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-X7

  4. I really want to give this one a try. I love the teaser you shared. I always wonder at those characters who are so disbelieving that other supernatural beings exist when they themselves are supernatural. Of course, paranormal abilities are a little easier to believe over supernatural beings like werewolves and vampires--so I guess I could see how one would believe in one but not the other . . .

  5. Good point. This week the teaser on my adult blog comes from Thirty and a Half Excuses by Denise Grover Swank - third in a series of humorous cozies. Happy reading!

  7. I know just what you mean about books getting bumped. This sounds like a promising series. Mine this week is supernatural also, the last Sookie Stackhouse book. http://wp.me/pZnGI-pU
