First Chapter Tuesdays/Teaser Tuesdays - January 14th

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... 

Lisa Hodges needs to make a decision fast. Thanks to her dead husband's gambling addiction, their savings is almost gone. In her early fifties with a large, waterfront home on Nantucket to support, Lisa hasn't worked in over thirty years, has no in-demand skills and is virtually unemployable.


The money was running out.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. Oh, yes, I like books with characters having to deal with real life issues, like financial ones. I would keep reading.

  2. Could be a very intriguing read! Here are my teasers for today: http://www.wendylohr.com/2020/01/teaser-tuesday-who-in-world-is-carmen.html

  3. I'd keep reading. I love books like this. That's a beautiful cover!

  4. I love books set on Nantucket. See what book we are featuring at Girl Who Reads

  5. Oh man, what a horrible situation for the protagonist. I'd be curious to hear how she finds a way to turn around her current situation.

  6. I;m drawn to books with mature main characters. This sounds really good too.
