First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros/Teaser Tuesdays - March 31st

It's Tuesday!  It's time to share your excerpts and teasers from books we are currently reading, have read or are planning to read.  So, feel free to join us by sharing the first paragraph or (a few) of a book you are reading or thinking about reading soon.  This meme is guaranteed to increase your TBR :)

Please link your blog post using Mr. Linky below. Make sure the link you enter is the direct link to your Tuesday post, not the main link to your blog. Thank you!

I, also, participate and link up to Teaser Tuesdays.  Here's info about that meme:

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!

Here's my entry for this week. I'm hoping to be reading this soon. It looks good.  What could be better than a cozy mystery set in a vintage candy shop?  

First Chapter... 

Tally Holt hummed tunelessly as she stirred the marshmallow crème mixture for her Whoopie Pies, her spoon clanking on the metal bowl and keeping up a rhythm of sorts. Warm summer sunlight streamed through the paned windows of the shop kitchen, laying bright distorted squares onto the taupe granite countertop. The buttery yellow of the kitchen's walls matched the sunlight this fine early July day.


She'd gotten off to a slow start a few weeks ago, mid-June, but business picked up every day.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. Those opening lines make me feel so cozy, as if I could sink into that space and go with the flow of what she's doing.

    Thanks for sharing...and for hosting.

  2. Looks like a great story. See what book we are featuring at Girl Who Reads

  3. Sounds like a good, cozy escape; I'd keep reading.

  4. The description of the batter is comforting and the cover is delightful!

  5. Hope you get to it soon, it sounds good. Thanks for taking over as host.

  6. This sounds really good and I love the cover! So springy and bright.
