Teaser Tuesday

SHOULD BE READING


* 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!


"Just do this for me. I want grand babies, Darcy. Wear something pretty with your hair up. Men like that." I swear she was oblivious to how uncomfortable these meetings made me.
"Can you at least tell me what his name is?" I asked before I went to my doom.

  1. I guess Darcy is a woman and this is not a Jane Austen spinoff. Mistakes happen when a writer uses the name Darcy. Nice tease. Hope you'll visit my book teaser

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.
