First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros - July 18th

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 saw this book and it looks so good.  I hope to read it soon.

First Chapter

Great.  Just great.

Stefanie Adams frowned at the gray dots circling endlessly on her phone's map, knowing only that she was somewhere between the Fira Archaeological Museum and her hotel.


Stefanie tensed.  Maybe touring the Greek Isles on her own wasn't the smartest idea.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

When private banker Stefanie Adams travels to Greece on vacation, she is suspected of murdering a wealthy bride who accused her deceased father of artifact theft. Unfortunately, the bride's accusation also ties Stefanie, a former archaeology student, to the robbery of a newly discovered gold statue, the Akrotiri Snake Goddess. With two high-profile crimes to solve, Greek police are under pressure, and both crimes lead straight to Stefanie.

Then her own life is threatened, and Stefanie must rely on her bank training for spotting potential criminals to identify which of her fellow travelers is the real killer. Is it the now-wealthy bridegroom? The popular travel blogger whose career the dead woman ruined, or the light-fingered British backpacker with an eye on the victim's valuable jewelry? Or could it be the flirtatious German tourist who is clearly after more than romance?

Caught up in a web of international intrigue, theft, and murder, Stefanie doesn't know who to trust. Not everyone is what they seem, and as charming Thomas Burkhardt warns, Where Greed Leads, Murder Follows...

What do you think? Would you keep reading?
