Teaser Tuesday

I jinxed myself after my last post when I said that I was lucky to be able to be logged on tonight. Five minutes after I posted my connection dropped out again! I went to do something else, and came back again and got another connection. Hopefully it will be long enough for me to post my Teaser Tuesday post!

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should be Reading:

  • 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!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

My teaser this week comes from page 228 of Calamity Jayne by Kathleen Bacus. This book was recommended to me as the kind of book that fans of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series might like. I can definitely see why people would think that. It is also reminiscent of the Bubbles Yablonsky series by Sarah Strohmeyer.

I debated how to proceed. My earlier bombshell routing with this male had submarined big-time. And it was a safe bet I couldn't intellectually spar with him. Frankly, I was getting too tired to do much more than breathe in and breathe out.


  1. I'm a Stephanie fan. I've read them all and waiting for this summer's addition. I'm writing this one down. Thanks for the tip and the teaser.

  2. Like the teaser.

    Happy reading and good luck with your connection!

    Here is my post

  3. Great teaser and I hope you can solve our connection problems soon--although it does sound like you have been productive around the house! I wish I could manage that without losing my internet. :)

  4. I hope you get your computer problems sorted out soon, Marg. I know how frustrating that can be! Great teaser!

  5. Great teaser Marg! I can so relate to being so tired I can only breathe at times. :)

  7. I am a Stephanie-fan as well, and may just put this on my wishlist for when I need something light and summery for vacation (whenever that'll be)

  8. I've heard this title before but never read the book. Nice teaser!

    Problems with the internet connection can be very very frustrating.
