First Chapter Tuesdays/Teaser Tuesdays - October 13th

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've been wanting to read this series for awhile. The first one is set around a harvest fall festival, so I thought this would be a good time to start. So I'll be starting this shortly...

First chapter

Liv Montgomery wiggled her toes in her new Sperry Top-Siders and breathed in the fresh country air. The day was crisp, the sun was shining, and Liv felt great. It was hard to believe that only a month ago she'd been standing in the Plaza ballroom, sleep deprived and patience hanging by a thread, while the bridezilla from hell ranted at her because the oysters they were serving at the reception were Atlantic, not Pacific.


At first Liv thought it was a gruesome joke, but one look at Ted and Joss and she knew this was for real.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. Seems like a perfect book for fall and I liked the first chapter.

  2. I love a cozy mystery -- and this one sounds good.

  3. Cute!! This sounds like a great fall read for a lazy weekend; hope you enjoy this one, Yvonne! Thanks for sharing it with us!

  4. Bridezilla. Have you ever watched the TV show? I have a couple of times and it sure puts a bad spin on the "ladies?" LOL
