Teaser Tuesday

* Grab your current read.
* Let the book fall open to a random page.
* Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
* You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from…that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given.
* Please avoid spoilers!

My Teaser:

"Allow me to introduce Mr. Edwin Blair," Meade interjected before Blair could ask any other questions. "He is, shall we say, an emissary of President Lincoln, and the person who warned us about the danger we faced.

~Page 166, A New Birth of Freedom: The Visitor - Robert G. Pielke


  1. I do like the teaser even though I know that book isn't for me.

  2. And did we pay any attention to that warning? Hmmm?

    Here's mine:

  3. Interesting. I wonder what danger they're referring to.

  4. This looks interesting. Is it non-fiction or a fictionalized account based on real events?
    Either way it sounds like something I would enjoy.
