Good morning, and welcome to Teaser Tuesdays, hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading.
This event is our opportunity to share excerpts from 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!

What did you find this week? I hope you’ll stop by and share….
