Intro Teaser Tuesdays

AMAZON

Tours January 19


Prologue

It's a clear hard winter day, and blinding sunlight pours into the conference room, glinting off metal surfaces, triggering migraines, and making the room uncomfortably hot, stifling. But in all these tall mid-town towers you can't turn down the heat. You're trapped.


Chapter 9

Erica steps into the elevator and presses 3. Sure, She'll write Claire a memo raising the possibility that the ferry crash was an act of cyberterrorism. When she's good and ready.

  8. My office is only on the second floor of a two-story building and I can relate to that opening. Meetings in our conference room are miserable temperature wise. Of course, the office itself is always too cold or too hot. The teaser especially grabbed me, cyberterrorism? Ferry crash? I would definitely want to keep reading to know more.

  9. Oh my, another formerly unknown title to add to my TBR list.
    It's good thing I just have a list and it's a bad thing that I don't read faster. So many titles, so little time! :)

  10. Oh, I love the sound of this one...and how the author makes us feel the discomfort of the office space.

    Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

  11. I like the opening. It definitely sets a mood. I'm guessing the uncomfortable heat in that conference room comes from some of the meeting's participants too!

  12. The opening paragraph does a great job of capturing corporate culture. The teaser if suspicious. You've got me interested.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
