First Chapter Tuesday/Teaser Tuesday - April 18th

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 one of the books I'm reading...

First Chapter...


Heather woke up, wrapped in the sheets and sweating her little old head off.

Dave was curled up at the end of the bed, his injuries finally healed.

The nightmare had been particularly disturbing this time. It'd been Christmas, she'd laid out a bunch of donuts and Ryan had eaten one and fallen over. They'd arrested her and slammed her in jail for good.


Another day in Hillside paradise. Hopefully, it'd be a murder-free one.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. I like the beginning - this one sounds like fun:). My offering this week is a far future murder mystery - https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2017/04/18/teaser-tuesday-18th-april-2017/

  2. Oh, that dream reminds me of some of my crazier ones...LOL. Thanks for sharing. Here's mine: “THE WIDOW OF WALL STREET”

  3. Looks like a fun one -- I'm guessing murder is on the horizon. :)

  4. Not sure about this one Yvonne but, I like the cover and title:)

  5. The teaser made me laugh. There's not many murder free days in these small cozy mystery towns!

  6. I laughed at the teaser. Any day that is murder-free must be a good one, I guess!

  7. The teaser is funny! I'd read more of this cozy.

  8. How can I resist that fun title and cover. I do love the cozies:)
