Teaser Tuesday

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. You know the rules: grab your current read, open to a random page and share a two sentence teaser with us (no spoilers!). Be sure to tell us about the book, so we can add it to our TBR list!

This week, my teaser is from Above by Isla Morley:

 “Carrying the weight of the world, that’s what I feel like I’m doing when I lift the boy up in my arms. I lay him on my cot and cover him with the quilt, and then force myself back to the kitchen seat so I won’t be tempted to pick him up and hold him some more.”

This week, my teaser is from The Sound of Broken Glass by Deborah Crombie:

“But this, this was just between Andy and the guitar, and there was a grace and confidence to his playing that took her breath away. She felt, as she listened and watched him, that she knew him in a way that she had never known anyone else.”

It’s a murder mystery, but that passage really spoke to me.

This week, my teaser is from The $ by Anne Thompson. This is a quote from Amy Miles, CEO of Regal Entertainment Group:

“‘What is the impact on our business if the consumer has the perception that films go to the home on an accelerated basis? It’s not just that we generate the revenue over a time period, but if the consumer understands that they have to wait to see a film in the home, we believe that helps out business.’”

Maybe if they didn’t charge $37 for popcorn and soda and I didn’t have to put up with teenagers on their cellphones, I’d be more likely to see things at the theater!

This week, my teaser is from That Old Black Magic by Mary Jane Clark:

 “Piper watched as the body was examined. She hadn’t noticed until now the mound of white powder that had been formed near Bertrand’s feet or the egg that had been placed on top of it.”

Come on – you know that you’re intrigued!

This week, my teaser is from Ripper by Isabel Allende:

“Petra Horr cropped her hair short like a boy, never used makeup and always wore the same clothes: boots, black trousers, and a white cotton shirt, and in winter, a thick sweatshirt with some rock band logo on the back. Her two concessions to fashion were her hair, dyed so it looked like a foxtail, and the lurid nail polish she wore on her fingernails and toenails, which she kept clipped short because she practiced martial arts.”

I had to do some googling to figure out what they meant by foxtail hair, but I think they mean this.

This week, my teaser is from The Kept by James Scott:

“These women were shaped differently than his mother or his sisters, rounder, more fleshy. They brought drinks to the men, played with their hair, sat on their laps, and whispered into their ears.”

Oh, we know what kind of women these are, don’t we?

This week, my teaser is from The Spook Lights Affair by Marcia Muller and Bill Pronzini, another in the Carpenter/Quincannon mystery series.

“Written on the back of the card in a small, crabbed hand were the words:

Your services required on bizarre matter. Kindly communicate at your earliest convenience.

BLM”

How fun to be called out on a “bizarre matter”! Sounds like a promising start…

This week, my teaser is from Delilah’s Daughters by Angela Benson. This is going in the mail to my associate reviewer in Canada, but I wanted to put this great teaser up before it goes:

“Alisha snorted. ‘Forgetting to pay the cable bill is a mistake. Sleeping with somebody who’s not your husband is a bit more than a mistake, I think.’”

I have to say, she’s right about that one!

This week, my teaser is from This Dark Road to Mercy by Wiley Cash:

“Tommy Broughton: I almost coughed my Sun Drop up into my nose when I heard that name. Sandy and I had spent years dealing with him in one way or another; he was nothing but a smalltime crook, but if Gaston County had had a hillbilly mafia then Tommy Broughton would’ve wanted to be its Don Corleone.”

Don’t you think that’s a great description? I’m betting Tommy’s one very interesting character.

This week, my teaser is from After I’m Gone, the newest novel from Laura Lippman. I generally love her work, and this is going to be a great read!

“What’s the old saying? How do you make a million dollars in the restaurant business”

For those of you who haven’t heard that joke, the answer is: start with two million. Tough business. :)
