Teaser Tuesday: Tempest Rising

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here’s the rules:

  1. Get the book you’re currently reading
  2. Open it to any random page
  3. Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page (Be courteous of your readers)
  4. 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’s teaser involves Tempest Rising by Nicole Peeler, the first novel in her Jane True series.

From page 57:

I imagined the whole day spent analyzing Read It and Weep’s customers, searching for some clue as to their true identity. In other words, I’d play the supernatural version of Sesame Street’s “one of these things is not like the others.”

From page 160:

Because what if Jason hadn’t accepted your swimming? I thought. What if you feared the truth would be that last proverbial straw and would drive him away?

I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.
