Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current read
* 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


This week I'm reading...



From the first chapter of the ebook...

I knew I was in trouble when Gino Parini shoved that .45 automatic in my face and made me read my own obituary. I'm not talking about something vague or California- cosmic, like the San Andreas Fault will turn Nevada into beachfront property, or those McDonald's French fries will seal my arteries shut or second-hand smoke will give me lunch cancer. I'm talking about my own honest-to-God black-and-white obituary ripped from page thirty-two of that morning's Columbus, Ohio newspaper.

  1. Reading your own obituary while you are alive is not a good sign at all. Sounds exciting though.

  9. Hi Yvonne,

    This book sounds just like my kind of read and has receieved some impressive reviews along the way.

    Even if I had not checked out the synopsis to make a final decision, I would have added it to my reading list just based on those few teaser lines.

    Who wouldn't be worried about seeing their own obituary in the newspaper, especially if there is a gun trained on you whilst you do it.

    My elderly father always says that he only reads the local paper to make sure that his name isn't in the 'Births, Marriages and Deaths' section. I wonder what he would say if it was there in print one day!!! It's a standing joke in the family!!

    Have a good day

    Yvonne
