Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter Tuesdays - December 2nd


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 one of the books I'm reading...


Lola never knew what hit her.

She was exhausted; Kevin's "business slash pleasure" cruises always took a toll on her, and she was more than a bit annoyed he'd chosen this particular weekend for one - after all, tomorrow was their fifteenth wedding anniversary. She knew he'd been under a lot of strain lately, though, what with the new laser device KMG was developing for the Army - not only was he under pressure to deliver the product on time, but there had been rumblings of a corporate spy in KMG's midst. She wondered vaguely if that was the real reason behind this impromptu cruise. Why else would he have dragged his three key people along on a weekend that should have been meant solely for the two of them? And people she didn't particularly like, to boot?


What do you think? Would you keep reading?

  12. Well, I love that cover. But I have to admit I'm not really impressed with the opening passage. I love cats and mysteries, though -- so I'd probably stick with it a little longer. Hope you enjoy the read!

  13. There's a lot of "telling" instead of "showing" in this opening, but I'd keep reading. I love to escape in a cozy!
