Teaser Tuesday

It’s that time of week again, everyone, and time for the Tuesday Teaser.
Again the reminder of what this is all about. We are asked to:
  1. Grab your current read.
  2. Let the book fall open to a random page.
  3. Share two teaser sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  4. Share the title of the book that the “teaser” comes from, so people can find the book if they like the teaser.
  5. And again remember – avoid spoilers.
Here's mine ~

A man is sitting on the bed. He is my father. The body of a woman is beneath the covers. She was my mother.

This teaser comes from Innocent by Scott Turow. What's YOUR teaser??

Well, I'm going directly to my library site as soon as I'm done here to put this book on hold! Had no idea Turow had a new one out. (Of course, in the past few days I've run across at least 4 or 5 books where I've gone to my library site to put holds on what I've found. Here's hoping they don't all come in at once!)

I'm in self-improvement mode, so my teaser is from "The Objective is Happiness,"by Thomas Wakefield. He gives you the basics to a path to figuring out how we create success (and failures) and how to make change happen, our way.

From page 56: "Invisible forces in your partnership will create coincidences. You might meet a person, something will show up, all manner of coincidence and things that seem like miracles will happen around and near you. Again, pay attention. Some things will be obvious while some others will be subtle."

So pay attention, because it could be the subtle thing that's the big thing!

I'm also reading a Sandra Brown book -- snagged it off the "new reads" shelf at the library yesterday. I'm not usually a Brown fan (and I can't remember the name of the book!) but it's holding my attention so far.

Happy reading everyone.

Oh, that's kinda sad.

She opted for his personal 'link, figuring he'd be too busy wheeling to answer, and she could leave him a v-mail.

But his face flickered on-screen, and those bold blue eyes fixed on hers.

"Before you marry anyone," she says, reciting Gospel, "you must see him drunk, sick, and with his mother. If not mother, then offspring." I can't help it. I'm fascinated. Where does she come up with this stuff?
