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!

From the ebook...
"This is bad, Michael. She's not responding. I think she might be dead."

"What was I thinking? I can't be away from the yoga studio for ten days. Maybe this is a sign."
"Of mental illness, maybe," he grumbled.
I ignored the world's grumpiest boyfriend and continued shaking my shiny new cell phone, like an exasperated mother trying to rouse a slumbering teenager. The screen remained dark. I turned the device sideways and tapped it against the dashboard. Nothing. Frustrated, I pounded on the phone's back with the heel of my hand. Maybe a high-tech Heimlich maneuver would convince it to cough up my messages.
"Would you please stop messing with that thing?" Michael snapped. "That's the twelfth time you've checked messages since we left Seattle. And calling it 'she' is just plain creepy. It's not female."
