teatimereads August pick: The Dead and the Dark by Courtney Gould

Hi, hello everyone and welcome back to another teatimereads announcement! This month, we are so excited that the tea party attendees have chosen to read THE DEAD AND THE DARK by Courtney Gould. Releasing on the 3rd of August, this book is delightfully unsettling and a bit scary, so we cannot wait to read something that matches the vibes as the weather begins to cool down. 

Here’s all you need to know about the book:

The Dark has been waiting for far too long, and it won’t stay hidden any longer.

Something is wrong in Snakebite, Oregon. Teenagers are disappearing, some turning up dead, the weather isn’t normal, and all fingers seem to point to TV’s most popular ghost hunters who have just returned to town. Logan Ortiz-Woodley, daughter of TV’s ParaSpectors, has never been to Snakebite before, but the moment she and her dads arrive, she starts to get the feeling that there’s more secrets buried here than they originally let on.

Ashley Barton’s boyfriend was the first teen to go missing, and she’s felt his presence ever since. But now that the Ortiz-Woodleys are in town, his ghost is following her and the only person Ashley can trust is the mysterious Logan. When Ashley and Logan team up to figure out who—or what—is haunting Snakebite, their investigation reveals truths about the town, their families, and themselves that neither of them are ready for. As the danger intensifies, they realize that their growing feelings for each other could be a light in the darkness.
