First Chapter Tuesday/Teaser Tuesday - Septembe 4th

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 Read and Gone by Allison Brook.  It's scheduled to be released on September 11th, so the teaser is from the e-ARC.  I'm loving it so far. 

First Chapter...

I glanced around my cottage at the thirty or so guests laughing and chatting, and grinned.  My party's a success!  They're all having a great time!  Judging by the bulging plastic bag of discarded paper plates, it was time to serve dessert.  I was on my way to the kitchen to instruct Mrs. C to put out coffee and tea, when I felt a tug on my pants leg.


A sound woke me.  I jerked upright to a sitting position.  Smoky Joe was gone.  Someone was in the cottage!

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. That sounds scary. I like cozies with a bookish theme.

  2. The first paragraph sounds fun and the teaser tells me its going to get mysterious. Sounds good to me.

  3. This is the book I'm spotlighting this week too. I enjoyed it. This week I am featuring Read and Gone by Allison Brook. Happy reading!

  4. I love that opening. We're ready for fun and coziness, and then...

    Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “HUNGRY HEART”

  5. I like the intro and the teaser. Looks like that cat is getting ready to jump. My cats are fascinated by Christmas trees, especially the bulbs :)

  6. You caught my attention with a Christmas tree in a library! Soon as that party's over, it's reading time!

  7. I had to think twice about the title lol - I read it as 'reed' and gone and thought, that's odd. Then the penny dropped lol

    Here's my Tuesday post. Enjoy your day!

  8. I love a good cozy mystery. MK shares a ghost story at Girl Who Reads
