Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday - December 10th

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...

On December twenty-fourth, a rousing rendition of "Deck the Halls" played on iPod speakers in the living room. Caitlin Butler hummed along to the merry tune, waiting for Jay and Jen Patterson and their children, Justin and Jasmine, to finish packing and leave on vacation. Going away for the holiday hadn't stopped them from decorating the house. No space was left un-decked.

Inside or out.

Not that Santa needed to stop by her tonight. Jolly Old St. Nicholas would deliver the kids' gifts to their grandparents' house in Idaho, rather than slide down the chimney in Montana. Unless he wanted to leave something for Caitlin. The idea of waking up to a stocking full of goodies and a mysterious present under the tree brought a smile to her face.

But she knew better than to believe.

Would you continue reading?
