Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter Tuesdays - April 28th

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!

I will soon be starting...

First Chapter

"Don't do it, Bea. He's not worth it." Talia Marby clamped her hand firmly around her employer's wrist, preventing Bea from pitching a chunk of fresh haddock at the man on the opposite side of the counter.

"But that wanker won't leave us alone, Talia!" Bea spoke as if the man weren't standing six feet away, glowering at them. "He comes in here nearly every day to harangue me, and he's gone to the hospital twice to bother Howie. I won't have it!"


Talia wrinkled her nose. "Bea, something's off." A bad feeling was beginning to nibble its way up her spine.

So, what do you think? Would you continue reading?
