First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros/Teaser Tuesdays - December 7th

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'm listening to this on audio.  It's good so far.

First Chapter... 

"The way Nadine carefully wove the tapestry of the small town really did make it feel like its own character," Abby Fawn said with a deep sigh of happiness.  She spoke so fondly of the book she had picked for The Laundry Club's monthly book club meeting.


"No matter what we say about the book, Abby is going to defend it until she convinces us to feel the same way."  Dottie Swaggert curled her nose as though she smelled dirty laundry a tourist was throwing into the closest washing machine.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Welcome to Normal, Kentucky where NOTHING is normal.

Librarian Abby Fawn is star struck when her favorite romance author, Nadine White, has rented a cozy camper at the Happy Trails Campground for the winter months.

Abby is devastated to find out Nadine White is nothing like the person she portrays in interviews or on social media. In fact, Nadine White is not nice at all and Abby lets her feelings known that she thinks Nadine is a fraud. . .after she finds out Nadine has a ghost writer.

When Nadine White is found dead in the Normal Library, Abby Fawn is Detective Hank Sharp's number one suspect.

It's time for Mae West to put up her camping gear for the winter months and put on her sleuthing gear to figure out who is framing Abby Fawn before Abby is the ending in Nadine White's final chapter. 

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. I love the cute little camper, and the story sounds really good. Thanks for sharing.

  2. This sounds like a fun Christmas story. I want to read a few but my first pick: The Matzah Ball was a DNF. I picked another this week, we shall see:

  3. Great plot summary--I'll have to give this series a try!

  4. This absolutely sounds like one I would enjoy .... between serial killers 😊

  5. Sounds like a great read.

    Over My Dead Body by Jeffrey Archer


    In London, the Metropolitan Police set up a new Unsolved Murders Unit—a cold case squad—to catch the criminals nobody else can.

    In Geneva, millionaire art collector Miles Faulkner—convicted of forgery and theft—was pronounced dead two months ago. So why is his unscrupulous lawyer still representing a dead client?

    On a luxury liner en route to New York, the battle for power within a wealthy dynasty is about to turn to murder.

    And at the heart of all three investigations are Detective Chief Inspector William Warwick, rising star of the department, and ex-undercover agent Ross Hogan, brought in from the cold.

    But can they catch the killers before it’s too late?

    Have a fabulous day. ♥

    1. This sounds like a really exciting book. I hope you are enjoying it.

  6. This author is so fun! I listened to the first book in this series last year and really enjoyed it. I need to continue with it.
