First Chapter Tuesdays/Teaser Tuesdays - January 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 just started reading this one...

First Chapter... 

Employed at last!

It was the only store in the mall that didn't invite shoppers to take a look inside. Sandwiched between Ye Olde Candle Shoppe and Sew What?, its mirrored storefront looked impenetrable. Images rebounded off the mirrors, challenging passers-by to guess what went on inside. I slowed down to guess.


"Sale" signs and "Specials" leapt out at me like accusing fingers. If YOU had a job, they seemed to say, then you too could be part of the great American consumer phenomenon.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. I love the sound of this one. Great premise and excerpts.

    Here's mine: “WHEN I WAS YOU”

  2. Yes, it is indeed intriguing! I'm wondering what or who will be the other end of that penknife!

    Here's my Tuesday post! Happy Tuesday!

  3. This is a new to me author. I'll be looking for your review.

  4. Sounds like a fun read. See what book we are featuring at Girl Who Reads.

  5. Sounds like fun. And I have this author on my list to try.

  6. Sounds like a really fun read! Love the excerpts!
