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...

Savannah saw something scurry past her in the near darkness - a cat! How frightened he must be in this desolate spot where nothing is familiar - where danger is imminent. Now she could relate to the cat's fear. It had become personal. If only she could find a way to keep her kidnapper at bay until help arrived. But no one knew where she and Aunt Margaret were - no one would come in time.

She thought about the circumstances that had landed them in this terrifying predicament - a situation that could very well end in torture and death for both of them.

Would you continue reading?


  1. Hi Yvonne,

    I love the second of your teaser lines, they would be real page-turners for me.

    However, I am not altogether sure I would make it that far, as the opening paragraph would have finished me off completely and seen me a gibbering wreck. The very thought of a cat scurrying past me, especially in near darkness, would have found me needing resuscitation!

    An irrational fear I know ... but one which is very real to me, so any cat related story is off the agenda for me.

    I do hope that you enjoy the story though and thanks for sharing your lines,
