First Chapter Tuesday/Teaser Tuesday - August 14th

Every Tuesday Vicki at I'd Rather Be At the Beach 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...

Things are actually going smoothly for once. I can't believe it. Here I am, staying at the house of Polish princess Zamanska (known to her friends as Zou Zou) while Darcy is away and I prepare for my wedding.


I didn't dare count on this, as my mother was the most fickle of creatures and I hadn't been able to count on her since she bolted from my father and me when I was only two. Still, this time I really had saved her bacon, so she jolly well should be grateful enough to pay for some decent clothes for me!

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. I suspect even decent clothes might be asking too much.

    Great teaser! Mine is at http://www.aliceaudrey.com/?p=16182

  2. I've only read the first in this series. I want to carry on. This one sounds great. This week I am featuring A Study in Death by Anna Lee Huber. Happy reading!

  3. Great descriptions...I am eager to find out what happens. Thanks for sharing,and here's mine: “AN UNWANTED GUEST”

  4. i'm looking forward to reading this one. I've enjoyed quite a few of the books in this series. I think this might wrap it up - not sure of that.

  5. Not sure about this one. The cover style is great, but I'm not a big weddings fan

  6. I'm seeing this book all over the place. Got it on my list now.

    My TT from The Book Of M

  7. I kept reading it. I love this cozy mystery series. See what I'm featuring this week at Girl Who Reads

  8. Hi Yvonne!

    Sounds like a lot of deaths (maybe murders) are going to occur!

    Here's my Tuesday post link! ;-)

  9. I loved this one! That teaser cracked me up. Her mother is so maddening. I hope you're enjoying this one!
