In this weekly bookish meme hosted by Miz B, at Should Be Reading, we have the opportunity to showcase our current reads.

Here’s how it works:

  • 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!

Here’s mine:

The small front room smelled of wood fires and stale sweat.  When Dara had lived on Snowdrop Park, she’d never realized how dirty and drab the house was, with wallpaper that had been the same all her life.  The paper in the living room might once have been small blue flowers on a cream background. p.256

Once in a Lifetime, by Cathy Kelly, an ARC from the Amazon Vine program.

We see this blurb on Amazon:

Kenny’s Department Store isn’t just a place to shop; it’s the heart of Ardagh, Ireland. Behind its stately Edwardian facade is an up-to-date store featuring unusual boutique products in an elegant setting. Here lives intersect…and secrets hide. TV reporter Ingrid Fitzgerald has watched her husband, David Kenny, pour his heart and soul into the family store — the “other woman” in her marriage — for years. Now, as their children fly the nest, Ingrid discovers something that will shake her world to its foundation.

Now I simply must hurry up and read this one!

What are the rest of you discovering today?  Hope you’ll stop by and share!

  1. I like this teaser – it describes a feeling I’ve had myself. Realizing after something’s over that it wasn’t ideal, or that it was, in fact, terrible. You just don’t know it because you’re IN it. Sounds like an interesting book – and nice choice!

    If you’d like, you can check out my teaser here.


    • Thanks for stopping by, Celia…I know what you mean! And another funny thing…everything looks smaller afterwards. Tiny and insignificant, which always seems impossible upon reflection…


Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
