Teaser Tuesday (40)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme, hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. Just do the following:
Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
DO NOT INCLUDE SPOILERS (make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away, so that you don't ruin the book for others)
Share the title and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR list is they like your teasers!

I just started reading Jocelyn Davies' debut novel, A Beautiful Dark, on the weekend. I devoured the first half and can't wait to finish it. Here's my teaser this week:

I felt a sharp twist of pain as my ankle buckled and snapped beneath me, and I went down.
I'd gone from calculated control to being completely helpless in the blink of an eye.

To give you more context, Skye was skiing. I hope that gets you a bit more interested!

I'm loving this book! I started it on Sunday and read the whole way home from the cottage. It's a really quick read and the story is interesting. Definitely not the same as any other angel stories I've read. You can probably expect me to finish and review it soon!

Feel free to share your teasers. I'd love to see what you're reading!
