First Chapter Tuesday/Teaser Tuesday - Septembe 11th

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 Die Me A River by Denise Swanson. This is part of one of my favorite cozy mystery series.

First Chapter...

Too Busy Thinking about My Baby

School psychologist Skye Denison-Boyd stopped pacing, tucked a stray curl into her messy bun, and plopped onto one of the chairs facing Homer Knapik's desk. She'd been waiting fifteen minutes, and the high school principal hadn't yet graced her with his presence.


The principal's office was larger than many of the school's classrooms, and its furnishings were top of the line. How much of the school's budget had Homer appropriated for his grandiose display of power?

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. Interesting idea! I'm intrigued to where this will lead...

    Here is my Tuesday post. Have a lovely day!

  2. I wonder why she is in the principal's office...and I like how she ponders his expenditures as she waits.

    Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “THE LIES WE TOLD”

  3. Lots of questions are raised here. It begs to be read.

  4. Wondering why she's in the principal's office.

  5. That leaves me curious for sure. Hope it's a good read.

  6. I love the cover and it sound slike it might be a fun read. Susan shares a book from the Great American Reads list at Girl Who Reads

  7. This is an author I really mean to read more from. Her books always sound great!
