First Chapter Tuesday/Teaser Tuesday - April 25th

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 one of the books I'm reading...

First Chapter...


He was falling.

A moment earlier he had been standing on solid ground, near the edge of the seaside cliff that dropped sharply to wet black rocks below. Now here he was, his face turned toward the night sky and nothing beneath him but open air. His arms windmilled back and his legs pumped wildly as the memories of a life well lived flashed before his eyes with such speed and vividness it made him gasp.


How much time did he have left? A heartbeat? Two? Was his heart even still beating?

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. Both our teasers this week feature someone falling. :-) I would keep reading yours, Yvonne! It sounds like a good one. Thanks for sharing!

  2. This series is on my TBR and I love the teaser! Looks like a fun read! I'd definitely keep reading!

  3. I'd sure keep reading. I love cozies and that title got me right away!
