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...

Chapter 1


The letter that would change Bea's life arrived while she was in the kitchen at Boston's Crazy Burger, working on four orders of Mt. Vesuvius specials - three patties stacked a foot tall and layered with caramelized onions, bacon, Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, sour pickles, and hot sauce. One of her new roommates, Nina, subletting for the summer in the dumpy three-bedroom apartment that Bea now shared with two strangers, poked her head in and said she'd signed for a certified envelope for Bea, and since she was coming to Crazy Burger for lunch, she brought it over.

"Certified? Who's it from?" Bea asked, taking a fast glance at the parcel as she scooped up the caramelized onions from the pan. Mmm. She'd been frying onions for three hours and still, the smell never got old.

Would you continue reading?
