First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros - May 2nd

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!

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 thought this sounded good. I'm hoping to read it soon.  It's book #1 in the Holiday Beach series.

First Chapter

"You have got to be kidding me."  Lucy Callahan slammed on the brakes and looked at the building in front of her in disbelief...


It wasn't a good sign when locals tried to send people to the competition.  Even worse, this was a friendly suggestion...

Synopsis from Goodreads:

"Lucky" Lucy Callahan can fix anything, which is why her boss sent her to the Dew Drop Inn in Holiday Beach, Minnesota. The neglected hotel sounds like the perfect challenge for a woman who likes to bring things to their full potential.

Roy Wagner would happily see the Dew Drop Inn go up in a blaze of glory after the trouble it has caused his family. He’d even supply the marshmallows. He doesn't know what Lucy is doing in town, but he’s sure the relentlessly helpful, happy woman is up to no good.

Rebuilding a hotel is no easy task, especially when her new neighbor insists that she won’t be able to make the old hotel fit into Holiday Beach’s unique tourist-friendly setting, but Lucy hasn’t failed yet. If she can get Roy on her side, maybe she can convince him that the changes she’s bringing could be a very good thing for him and his hometown.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. The first chapter excerpt grabbed me so I would keep reading! The cover makes me think it would be a good book to read around St. Patrick’s Day but we’re past that.

  2. This looks adorable and I do wonder just what the competition in the teaser is about. Sounds like a fun read!
