Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter Tuesdays - November 25th


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...




"911? I need to report a murder," I said, clutching my cell phone in my left hand as I steadied the warm pizza box in my right. I should have put the pizza on the porch before I called the police. Instead, I was holding on to it as though it were the last life preserver on the Titanic. At least the heat radiating from the box felt good. We were two weeks past New Year's, and though only dustings of snow had found their way to our part of the North Carolina mountains this winter so far, I knew it wouldn't be long before it would make its first full-blown appearance.

My voice was calmer than I expected it to be as I spoke; I was startled to discover that I didn't really know how I would react to finding a body until it happened to me.

  10. I could never imagine putting a pizza down, in whatever situation, although murder would be a good one! But I do agree with the narrator that you don't know how you'll respond until you're in the situation! After that cover I'm really craving some midnight pizza! Sorry for being so late with commenting today! Thanks for sharing :) have a great week!
