First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros/Teaser Tuesdays - May 5th

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!

I just finished reading this one. The teasers are from the E-ARC.

First Chapter... 

I disconnected the phone call, waiting for the sirens, ready to be arrested and thrown into the women's side of the tiny jail in Elkview, Alaska. A fine way to settle back in my hometown after a few years away.


In truth, an imbroglio had begun when I proposed a simple change to our signature bear claw recipe. My position was that adding a bit of chocolate to anything was an improvement, but I should have known better than to suggest a change to my head chef.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. I like the sound of this one: the setting, the excerpts, and the cover. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Curious about what this person did to get her jailed LOL?

  3. I love cozy mysteries and they seem to be the perfect read for right now.

  4. Adding chocolate definitely doesn't ever sound wrong, and definitely not to justify a murder! Sounds like an interesting book :) Thanks for sharing!

  5. That sounds so fun. I would love to give it a go!

  6. What a wonderful play on words! Fun cover, too!

  7. Sounds like a good cozy. I'll have to check it out. My Teaser is from The Last House Guest by Megan Miranda

  8. Sounds good and I love the setting.

  9. I agree, chocolate improves just about anything. :)

  10. I like the teasers and completely agree that adding chocolate is always an improvement. I have this one coming up in a couple of books and am looking forward to it.
