Teaser Tuesday-May 19



Check out Teaser Tuesdays from Should Be Reading. TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

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!

This week my teaser is from Charms for the Easy Life by Kaye Gibbons:

For payment, my grandmother requested that the sawmill hire the best carpenter in town to build a lovely addition onto her home. Otherwise, she said, the world would know about the loose blades, loose belts, and unoiled machinery that she'd heard about as the victim ate his dinner.

What a wonderfully intriguing teaser! And a little uneasy too, by golly. Now I really want to know what's going on.

Meanwhile, my own teaser is at Bookishgal.
