First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros/Teaser Tuesdays - October 12th



It's Tuesday!  It's time to share your excerpts and teasers from books we are currently reading, have read or are planning to read.  So, feel free to join us by sharing the first paragraph or (a few) of a book you are reading or thinking about reading soon.  This meme is guaranteed to increase your TBR :)



Please link your blog post using Mr. Linky below. Make sure the link you enter is the direct link to your Tuesday post, not the main link to your blog. Thank you!



I, also, participate and link up to Teaser Tuesdays.  Here's info about that meme:

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!



I'm currently reading this one. The excerpts are from the E-ARC...





First Chapter... 

On a balmy afternoon in early September, Roman Marek stood on the sidewalk at the corner of Carmel Street and Pacific Lane in Valentine Bay, Oregon.  His hands in his pockets, he scowled at the excess of arches and scrollwork adorning the facade of the building directly in front of him.

Teaser...

The Valentine Bay Theatre was nothing short of a nightmare - at least, to roman it was.  He'd made his fortune in Las Vegas real estate and he had a definite preference for efficient, light-filled, modern spaces.  The last thing he would ever invest in was a run-down, century-old theater in the Venetian Gothic style.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

He’d do anything for his son…

…Including returning to the town he left behind.

Valentine Bay’s the perfect place for real estate developer Roman Marek to raise his infant son. But when he snaps up the charming local theater, he doesn’t bargain for tempestuous director Hailey Bravo. Hailey won’t let Roman wreck the thing she holds most dear—and she’s certainly gotten under Roman’s notoriously thick skin. As the duo spar and sparks fly, Roman’s surprised to find that Hailey’s the perfect missing piece for his family. But how can he convince her that this partnership’s for keeps?



What do you think? Would you keep reading?

  5. Romance really isn't my favorite genre, so I'd probably give it a miss.
