Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter Tuesdays - February 10th

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 just started reading...

First chapter...

I must say the five of us were a good-looking group in our silky summer dresses and strappy high heels, earrings swinging, as we strolled toward the coach that would take us to the restaurant for the first dinner on our tour of northern Spain. We climbed aboard and said hello to the other passengers from our luxury train. We couldn't wait to see everything, do everything, experience everything in this amazing country. We took seats in two available rows and craned our necks, looking out the windows at the bustling street in front of the station.

Just as the door closed and the driver gunned the engine into life, there was a loud commotion. We heard a familiar voice demanding that the bus wait for him. I looked out and saw a large, sweaty man waving his arms and shouting.


"He's obnoxious."

"I could kill him," I said. "He's spoiling the whole experience."

What do you think? Would you continue reading?


  1. I love a good cozy and this sounds like it has potential. I like the Spain setting too. My teaser & giveaway

  2. Beautiful attractive cover and it sounds a good enjoyable mystery!

  3. This might help with my current reading slump - sound like fun.

  4. I love cozies. Such a fun and cute cover and I think that tease is going to lead into something more than she anticipated. Yes, I would continue reading.

  7. Ha, don't you just hate people like that. I read a lot of cozies and this sounds like fun.

    Mine this week is a classic: The Crime of Sylvestre Bonnard by Anatole France at http://wp.me/pZnGI-j6

  8. Oh, yes, you had me at Flamenco and Flan...and the setting sounds delicious. Not that large, sweaty man, though...wonder who he is!

    Thanks for sharing...and I want to know more. Here's mine: “ONE PLUS ONE”

  9. Strappy high heels are something I could never wear, but I like the image they create.

    I like the intro, Yvonne. Makes me want to visit Spain on a luxury train.

  10. This sounds cute and any book that involves good shoes is definitely interesting! I've got so many cozies going I may want to see your review but I'm definitely intrigued!

  11. Right off - I love the setting. The little glimpse into the story sounds good too. Yes, I'd keep going.

  12. Looks like a great cozy.

    My teaser this week is from a mid-grade/young adult historical fiction set in Biblical times: http://pdworkman.com/excerpt-from-lamp-of-darkness/

  13. Cheerful cover , nice teaser!


  14. A little bit of a tongue twister title! ;-)
    Both the beginning and the teaser make the book interesting.

  15. This sounds like a good one! I enjoyed the first book in the series.
