First Chapter Tuesdays/Teaser Tuesdays - May 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 read the first book in this series and loved it. I need to make time to continue it. Another cat-centric cozy mystery :) This is the second book in the series, don't you just love the way the cat has one eye open on the cover...

First chapter...

The winter morning air was clean and clear as glass - and sharp enough to cut like glass, too. But he didn't mind the cold. After all, he was rested, invigorated...and he had a good coat.

He inhaled deeply, closing his eyes against the dawn sunlight. It had been so wonderful this morning, waking up and finding himself lying in bed with Sunny, enjoying the shared body warmth, the closeness, the intoxicating smell of her. And when she'd sighed sleepily and put her arms around him...oh, yes, that had been wonderful.


Sunny placed the carrier on the exam table and opened the door. Shadow stepped out onto the metal surface, heading straight for Jane. He sat back on his haunches and extended his injured paw to the vet.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?
