Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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!

From The Ruins of Lace by Iris Anthony

"There was nothing in the world for me now except this one thing. This one task: to finish repairing an irreparable dike."

pg. 147 (ARC)

That would be difficult to repair. :)

I like this book's title.

Here is my teaser from MURDER TAKES TIME by Giacomo Giammatteo. It was GOOD...just finished it yesterday.

Sounds intriguing. I wonder why the character feels that way. My teasers are from Dearly, Beloved by Lia Habel and Run the Risk by Lori Foster. Happy reading!
