Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter Tuesdays - September 9th

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...

A young woman with carrot red hair stormed into Amelia's office. She had a smattering of freckles across her nose and her lips were pressed together in an angry line.

"They want to close down the orphanage and ruin everything Uncle Dell has worked for," exclaimed the girl. "So where will they put the orphans? Out on the streets again?" She furrowed her brow as she pounded the desk with her fist. "We can't let that happen."

So what do you think? Would you continue reading?


  1. Sounds like someone isn't a very happy camper. Enjoy! My teaser

  2. Yes, I'd continue reading. I'd like to find out if they save the orphanage and who is the missing heir.
    Here is my tease - http://fuonlyknew.com/2014/09/09/teaser-tuesdays-80-unbroken-ties-by-m-latimer-ridley/

  3. I am curious to know what happens. I hope you enjoy it.

  4. I'd have to read a little more before deciding if I'd stick with it.

  5. Oh, I like a character that wants to right the wrongs of the world...sounds like a good story! Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “THEN AND ALWAYS”

  6. I would keep reading! I'd want to know what happens to the orphanage too; hope you enjoy your read!

  7. A mystery series! I'm always looking forward to ones I haven't heard about before.
    Mine is from A Free Man of Color, the first in Barbara Hambly's Benjamin January series. http://wp.me/pZnGI-cB

  8. That opening really gets right into the story, doesn't it? You know the problem and you meet the person who hopes to make things right. I'd keep reading to find out if she succeeds.
    Here's the link to my Tuesday post: Retirement Can Be Murder.

  9. I like this one. The title is interesting too.

  10. I want to know what will happen to the orphans too!

  11. How can I resist a new detective series and a character with carrot red hair and a smattering of freckles? Yes, I'd pick this one up too.

  12. Nice teaser, I'd definitely keep reading :) Hope you love the rest of the book!
