Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter Tuesdays - June 17th


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...




Amelia Moore, founder of the Moore Detective Agency, sat at her desk as she watched an eighteen-year-old girl take a seat in front of her. The young woman wore the new fashion trend, worn out Levis with the washed out look and with a hole here and there.

"I can pay you," said the young woman as she pushed her strawberry-blond hair behind her shoulders. "My name is Kate Clemmons. My parents said they would finance this because it's so important to me. Money is not an issue."



What do you think? Would you keep reading?

  2. I wonder what young Kate Clemmons wants with a detective. She comes from money, it sounds like. I would keep reading.

  8. Can't say I've heard of this author, but your teaser does make one want to know more, such as: why would a teenager need a detective? Mine: The Swiss Family Robinson

  12. I'm curious! The cover is a little cheesy but I love the Ireland tie-in and I want to know more about the story. I might wait for a review or two before I hunt it down though!

  14. Can't figure out why an eighteen year old would need a detective. Since I've written that sentence, a couple of reasons have come to mind. I like this one. I would keep reading it.
