Double Teaser Tuesday

This week for Teaser Tuesday I thought I would share two teasers - one from the book I just finished, and the other from the book I just started.

The first teaser comes from A Little Friendly Advice by Siobhan Vivian. I first heard of this author over at Persnickety Snark. This wasn't the book that Adele was recommending, but it was the only one my author had.

My teaser comes from page 105:

But Beth said that journals are sometimes like photo albums. People don't put in the ugly pictures. They just keep the ones where they look pretty and happy.

The second teaser comes from page 18 of The Search by Nora Roberts. It's been a while since I have read one of her romantic suspense novels, although I have read quite a few of her contemporary romance novels in the last few months. It always is a treat to read one of her novels, especially seeing as she is so prolific in terms of the number of books that she writes, and the different styles, and yet the quality is always pretty good.
The other two of her three kids stood on the covered front porch, tails wagging, feet dancing. One of the best things about dogs, to Fiona's mind, was their absolute joy in welcoming you home, whether you'd been gone for five minutes or five days. There lay unconditional and boundless love.

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading. Head on over to find out all about it, and how to join in!

  1. Great choices! I agree, it's been a while since I've read a NR suspense... well, except for my monthly in death novel

    Today my teaser is from Promise Canyon.

  2. That's so true about photo albums! And The Search is on my wish list. I haven't read a Roberts book in eons...

    Here's my TT:

  6. Both teasers are so true. I read the bride series by NR a month or two ago. They didn't impress me. I've never read any of her suspense books.

  10. I think the first one is so true, nobody wants to look back and see the ugly. Both teasers are great. Kaye—the road goes ever ever on

  11. Journals do contain some of the uglier elements, though...I can look back and read about the furious fights I had in middle school with my friends, and they're hilarious in retrospect.

  14. What great teasers! I love Nora Roberts and haven't read her in a couple of years. I really need to correct that!

    Here is mine:

  15. Teaser 1: This is so true. Despite how cathrtic it can be, I often have difficulty writing through the more troubling times, and look for the best photos to share and display.

    Teaser 2: I read this one last summer and, while I did not think it her best suspense, I did enjoy it.

    Thanks for visiting me.

  18. Not MY journal. All the trash goes in it so it doesn't come out in front of people.

  22. Happy Teaser Tuesday!!! My teaser this week is for Mistwood by Leah Cypess which is currently discount on Amazon for only $6.50 for a new hardcover copy!!! I posted a link to the price! Finally, a great fantasy book that really feels like the older fantasy novels written by favorites like Tamora Pierce and Sharon Shinn!

    Sincerely,

  30. Your first teaser reminds me of the dilemma of choosing a decent photo for your Facebook or blog profiles. Want them to be in the last ten years but good ones are hard to find. So, I usually let my dog star. Speaking of dogs, if there's some in the Nora Roberts that makes me want to read it!

    My TT is for "The Holy Thief" at Summit Musings
