First Chapter Tuesdays/Teaser Tuesdays - January 28th

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 reading this one this week. The excerpts are from the ARC...

First Chapter... 

Chapter One

My computer monitor flickered briefly, and the screen went black. The lights in the ceiling high above my desk made a buzzing sound and the they, too, went dark. The window beside my desk offered little help. The bright May sun had set fifteen minutes ago. Muttering under my breath, I reached for my cell phone only to remember that I'd set it on the oak console table on the opposite side of the office.


Another thud turned me in the direction of the outdoor garden area, located on an acre lot behind the barn, and then I had my answer. It was Oscar, our friendly neighborhood raccoon, who liked to steal shiny objects.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?
