First Chapter Tuesday/Teaser Tuesday - March 7th

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, now being hosted by Ambrosia at The Purple Booker. 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 try not to lie. Honest. But as I drove my minivan down the curving treelined road on the Longworth Estate, I convinced myself no other tactic would work. Not with the rules that Shawn Cuddahee of the Mercy Animal Sanctuary had told me I must obey during my visit to the owner of this grand mansion.


Shawn rescued small animals, those that were brought to him, dumped on him or found. The cat in question, a lovely long-haired black cat named Isis (according to her tags) had been saved from near-certain death by Shawn himself.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. I love that cover! And the story sounds promising. I'd keep reading.

  2. A critter and a mystery, sounds like fun.

  4. Such an enchanting cover for this one. And anything to do with rescuing animals is a winner for me!

  5. Sounds great, I'd keep reading.

  6. Sounds interesting. I love when animals get rescued but I hope it's not too sad. Here's my link for today:

  7. I like this intro, and this looks like a fun read!

  8. I would definitely keep reading! This looks like one I would love!

  9. Sounds like a sweet cozy mystery. I'm curious about those rules!

  10. I used to love a series she had about a detective who looked into adoptions but I haven't read anything from this series. I really should!
