Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter Tuesdays - October 21st

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!

I'm using a book I just finished reading...

Miss An'gel Ducote fixed her houseguest with a gimlet eye. "I expect you to behave like a proper gentlemen while you're here."

Diesel Harris regarded his hostess unblinkingly for a moment before he meowed.

Miss Dickce Ducote snorted with laughter. "Good gracious, Sister, you don't need to lecture him on how to conduct himself. Diesel has better manners than some of the two-legged fools who've set foot in Riverhill."

What do you think? Would you continue reading?


  1. Hmm...I think I'd need to know about the book, as this intro doesn't really grab me. I also have a cozy this week: Mine: Tomb With a View

  2. I like the opening.. sounds like fun. Hope you enjoy this new series.

  3. Awww...what a cute cover! Yes, I would probably keep reading.
    My teaser today is from Lost and Found by Brooke Davis.

  4. Not sure about this one - I'd need to read on a bit more first before deciding.

  5. I'd read on, especially as I love series mysteries. Mine this week is at

  6. I like cats. Most of them are better behaved than people. I would read on.

    I have two teasers today from Veronica Roth’s YA dystopian “Divergent” series:

  7. Sounds delightful...and what a cute cover! I am curious about the antics this "houseguest" is sure to pull.


  8. I love the cover. :-) I would keep reading. I want to know Diesel better, maybe give him a scratch behind his ear.

  9. Sounds like a fun cozy. I like characters who talk to their pets like I do.
    My Tuesday post features THE LITTLEST COWBOY.

  10. That looks like a keeper, and it appears there may be some animal hijinks ahead as well. :)

  11. Nice cover and teaser.

  12. Looks fun, though I think I remember this from last week?

  13. Sounds like an entertaining mystery, enjoy your book. Have a good week! kelley—the road goes ever ever on

  14. Great excerpt and the cover is really cute. I've read the first one in this series but never read any more. I should probably fix that!
