First Chapter Tuesday/Teaser Tuesday - December 27th

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, now being hosted by Ambrosia at The Purple Booker. 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...

First Chapter...

At least half the errands I ran for Uncle Tom were probably related to his "government contracts." Oh sure, he never admitted it, and I never opened the packages that I delivered. I never questioned him about the odd places where I had to pick him up in the dead of night. I'm not stupid, just a bit crazy, and getting crazier by the minute. I couldn't for the life of me figure out if his current project was government related or just bad family genes.


"So you bought a lifetime supply of toilet paper?" The more I considered the chore in front of me, the more certain I became that this job had nothing to do with his secret contacts.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. This sounds intriguing. I'd keep reading. I have two this week - Midnight Obsession by Melinda Leigh and Rose and Thorn by Sarah Prineas. Happy reading!

  2. Color me intrigued. I have no clue where this might be going but it sure has me curious now:)

    My TT from The Kill Switch

  3. Sounds like a fun one!

  5. Does sound quirky. I hope you thoroughly enjoy it. Here's my link for today's intro and teaser: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-1pK

  6. How mysterious this one sounds! I love that cover, too, which is deceptively sweet, considering what is going on with the characters. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “NEVER ALONE”

  7. Great teaser. Uncle Tom sounds like an intriguing character. Happy New Year.

  8. Sounds like a fun and quirky story. I like "Nutrition Mafia" and I'd definitely like to get to know more about Uncle Tom.
    My Tuesday post features Isabel Allende’s The Japanese Lover.

  9. This sounds different; I'd read more.
    Hope your New Year in wonderful Yvonne.
