First Chapter Tuesdays/Teaser Tuesdays - December 8th

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's book...

First chapter...

"Don't ask me to do this. Please." Josie Blair set her coffee mug down on the table. Hot brown liquid sloshed over onto the mess of papers spread across the surface, which served as a desk as well as a place to eat. "Darn it." She crossed the floor of her tiny Brooklyn kitchen, opened a drawer, and pulled out a paper towel.

"There's no need to swear at me," her mother said.


Welcome to Dorset Falls. Josie passed the sign and drove into town. Her spirits sank. The place was far, far worse than she remembered.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. Curious what her mom wants her to do? Cute title.

  2. Ugh! I hate it when that happens. I hope her papers weren't ruined completely. I definitely want to know more. What is it she doesn't want to do? What had she been expecting when she returned to Dorset Falls?

  3. I love how the opening lines show us the setting and a bit of who the MC is...I like seeing the quirkiness of people in their homes and in their lives.

    Thanks for sharing...gorgeous cover, too. Here's mine: “HERE, HOME, HOPE”

  4. Cozies are so much fun! This sounds like one I'd enjoy. Love the cover too.
    My Tuesday post features Beach Trip.

  5. Great tease. Yes, I would definitely keep on reading.

  6. Yes, I would keep reading- the cat on the cover sold me :)

  7. So cute. Hmmm, does her mother want her to come home?

  9. This sounds like a fun cosy mystery - I'd keep reading!
