First Chapter Tuesday/Teaser Tuesday - April 16th

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!

I'm hoping to read this one soon...

First Chapter... 

It was sweltering.  The sun beat down, and perspiration dripped along Jazzi's spine.  Uncomfortable and impatient, she wished the auctioneer would hurry up.  She wanted this house.  She and her cousin, Jerod, had walked through it, top to bottom, at the initial showing and hadn't seen any major problems.  They'd flipped houses together for four years now.  Mostly successes.


A skeleton was lying inside, its head cradled on a pillow, its knees pulled up.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. Hm... those darned skeletons turn up everywhere! I hope you enjoy this one when you get to it, Yvonne - the premise sounds a good one.

  2. Hi Yvonne! I love this cover, it has a great feel to it, murder and mystery! :) Cute dog, too!

  3. Yay, maybe I can finally comment. This one sounds good.

  4. I love the sound of this one. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “SUNSET BEACH”

  5. Wow, finding a skeleton in your recently bought house would be a shock! I'd keep reading.

  6. I love cozy mysteries so I'll definitely be adding this to my list. See what book I'm featuring at Girl Who Reads

  7. I have this on my TBR. I love the blurb and I really enjoyed the excerpts!
