Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter Tuesdays - June 3rd

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...

Something was off. Cara Kryzik was no psychic, but the minute her bare feet hit the floor that morning, she sensed it.

She sniffed the air apprehensively and was met with the sweet perfume from the tiny nosegay of gardenias - her favorites - that she'd place in a sterling bud vase on her dresser the night before.

Had she over-slept? No. The big bells of St. John the Baptist Cathedral were ringing the eight o'clock hour as she descended the stairs from her apartment to her shop one floor below.

What do you think? Would you continue reading?


  1. I like it. I think I already like Cara. I haven't read this author before but I like the way it starts.

  2. I like that intro -- sounds like a great pick --enjoy Yvonne.

  3. What is a nosegay? This is a new word to me.
    Interesting teaser.


  4. I've heard good things about this one ... good beach reading. I plan to read it this summer.

  5. This is such a pretty cover. The author is coming to our local library for a champagne reception, but sadly, I have another commitment that evening.

  6. I like this beginning; I'd have to keep reading,
