First Chapter Tuesdays/Teaser Tuesdays - December 6th

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...

First Chapter...

I want to be really clear about a few things. I don't chase after stray cats, I don't break into houses and I most definitely do not steal valuable antiques from dead people.


I had been something of a drifter since I got out of college, and if I was honest with myself, it had started to get a little tiring.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. Looks like a lovely cozy.

    Mine this week is a steampunk series:

  2. That's a fun intro and a perfect hectic month read. enjoy

  3. Great opening, I would continue reading!

  4. Cute cover. This sounds like a fun, light story.
    My Tuesday post features a legal thriller/mystery: BETRAYED.

  5. I like the tone set in the first paragraph. The cover is so beautiful too. Enjoy.

  6. I love that cover, and can imagine the interior of the home. Does she have some of those antiques she mentioned? What's the story? Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “THE BAD THINGS”
