Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter Tuesday - August 27th

Every Tuesday Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where we share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon. Care to join us?

If you'd like to play along on Teaser Tuesdays, just click the button above.

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 e-book...

My boss has gotten easier to handle since I realized he's a magpie.

I don't mean that literally.  Literally, he's a consulting detective for the San Francisco, PD, a man who has solved hundreds of impossible cases, usually with me at his side keeping him calm and handing him antiseptic wipes.

I mean that he's distracted by shiny objects - only in his case the objects are odd numbers and germs and dirt and a hundred major phobias.  Exactly one hundred.  There's a list in a binder, centered on the coffee table.  Whenever a new phobia pops up, he has to either eliminate one of the old ones or, more often, combine a couple.



  1. I think that is a pretty fun intro, so I would read some more - great choice. Thanks for joining us.

  2. I so enjoyed this book, Yvonne...hope you are, too. Definitely an enticing opening.


  3. This sounds like a fun book... hope you're enjoying it!

  4. How funny--I mean that there is a book about the show. I didn't watch the show so I probably wouldn't read the book. But I hope you enjoy it. Kelley at the road goes ever ever on

  5. It seems I've read this teaser before. I have not read any of the "Monk" or "Psych" books yet. I might have to hunt down a few... My teaser: Whiskey Beach

  6. A fun teaser, enjoy!

  7. I've read a different book by Hy and it was pretty good.

  8. This is so funny. I've never seen "Monk" before, but my son loves it.

  9. Are the Monk books as good as the TV show?

  10. I've only watched the TV show. This was a fun intro.

  11. I had to laugh about his phobias. Would like to read this one.
