First Chapter Tuesday/Teaser Tuesday - September 19th

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...

"Sherlock Holmes bookshop and Emporium, Gemma speaking."

"Hi. I...I...uh...May I speak to the person in charge of author events? Please?"

"I'd be happy to help you."


"Welcome. You must be Renalta Van Markoff. You look exactly like your author photo." Although the photo had been taken at least twenty years ago.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. The author either ages well, or someone is lying. :-) I keep seeing this one around. It sounds like a good one! I hope you are enjoying it!

  2. I recently read this one and enjoyed it very much. Here are mine for the week. Happy reading!

  3. I've been eyeing this book, as I love anything that features authors and books.

    Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “OUR SOULS AT NIGHT”

  4. As an author, I actually went to a studio to get pictures for jacket photos just so I could have the time difference. Never used them. Never will.

    Great teaser. My teaser is from The Dream Thieves

  5. A cozy tie-in with Sherlock! Sounds like fun. I like the subtle sense of humor. Enjoy Yvonne.

  6. The teaser sounds good. Hope you're enjoying it! My Teaser

  7. I'm in the mood for a good cozy, so I'd probably read a bit more and decide.

  8. I would definitely keep reading! This series is high up on my TBR. It looks great!
