First Chapter Tuesday/Teaser Tuesday - February 19th

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 is from the current book I'm reading...

First Chapter... .

Savage Wells, Wyoming
Territory, 1876

Miriam Bricks sat in the cramped and rancid interior of a rickety stagecoach and contemplated for the hundredth time how fortunate she was to be there. In many ways, being pressed between two passengers - one of whom clearly hadn't bathed in months, perhaps years, and neither of whom had stopped arguing since embarking that morning - was still an improvement over her previous circumstances.


Beyond her independence, she had a new job in a new town where no one had any idea about her past.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. New to me title, not a time period I enjoy typically. I hope this is a winner for you.

  2. Well, if being in the position she's is rates as improvement, I'd say she's been in a bad spot. Hope you enjoy it!

  3. Now I want to know what her previous circumstances were, since currently she seems to be in an unpleasant situation. LOL. Thanks for sharing. Here's mine: “DON’T WAKE UP”

  4. Wow, now I'm wondering what her previous circumstances were.

  5. I'd read on. Wondering what she's been through. My Teaser

  6. This is a genre I usually don't read, though I admit, this has potential. My post is here:

  7. Sounds like she is off on a new start. I would keep reading.

  8. It's not a time period I usually read, but it sounds interesting. See what Susan featured at Girl Who Reads
