Teaser Tuesday


HOST


* 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:

Mary Theresa flashed Rosa a glare as if she had been betrayed.
Rosa responded with an innocent "I didn't say anything!" shrug of the shoulders and returned to her sewing machine.
