First Chapter Tuesday/Teaser Tuesday - October 3rd

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?

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...

I looked at the printout in my hand one more time, then checked the number spray-painted on the gravel in the formerly empty lot in Pittsburgh's Strip District. "Thirty-eight. This is it," I said to Jake Lambert, my assistant and chef - and, more importantly, my boyfriend. Sometimes I couldn't get used to the fact that we were a couple. Sort of, anyway. Jake was my older brother Mike's best friend and I'd known him almost all my life. He'd been the object of my huge teenage crush, even though I had been only Mike's baby sister to him.


So far, Jake was keeping his burger recipe top secret.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. This looks cute, I would keep reading! Here's mine:

  2. Cute title. Now I've got the Bob Dylan song running through my mind...

  3. I love the title, the cover, and I'm curious about those excerpts, and why the number is spray-painted in the gravel.

    Here's mine: “CARDINAL CABIN”

  4. Sounds good. I like the cover and premise. Here are mine for the week. Happy reading!

  5. This is such a fun series. And that cover is too cute:)

  6. I really like the cover, and the narrator's voice. I would definitely like to keep going.
