First Chapter Tuesday/Teaser Tuesday - May 21st

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 planning to read this one soon...

First Chapter... 

I should have known by the unsettling tone of the cats' meows that disaster was looming. Of course, at the time I was more worried about how the guests liked breakfast. It was only the fourth one I'd served since officially becoming owner of the Oyster Cove Guesthouse.


Darn! It wasn't Charles. It was Barbara Littlefield, the town building inspector, and the last person I wanted to deal with right now.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. Oh I like that intro, it drew me in - curious for more. Hope you are enjoying this one.

  2. I have this one too. I don't know that those particular bits grab my attention, but I'd keep reading anyway.

  3. Apart from the story what a beautiful cover.

  4. ooh I get that unsettling tone when the cats are amongst the pigeons (literally) in my garden lol

    Sounds like a fun read. I'd read it!

    Here is my Teaser Tuesday post!

  5. I've always wanted to own and run a B&B etc. so this book caught my attention. I love the cover too.

  6. I might keep reading. Might need a little more. I'll check it out. Thanks for sharing it. Love a good cozy. My Teaser

  7. I can never pass up a cozy mystery. Check out the book Susan is featuring at Girl Who Reads

  8. I would definitely keep reading. This is an author I've been wanting to read and I like that beginning!

  9. Definitely would keep reading :)
