Tuesday Teaser: "Train From Marietta," "Wee Free Men," "Secrets To The Grave"


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought I would play for fun! Just do the following
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on  that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away!   You don’t  want  to  ruin the  book for others!)
  • Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can  add the book to their TBR  Lists  if they  like your teaser. 
Karen's: (This is from the book I just finished. It was so good I wanted to do a teaser from it.)
She didn't feel the cool of the rain, but instead the pull of his whiskers on her hair and his breath on her face. Was that his heart or hers thumping so determinedly between them?
Taken from p. 193 of Train From Marietta by Dorothy Garlock See my review.

Now I'm reading this one:
Once again the water boiled, the green-haired creature shot up, and the long arms clawed at the mud. Then it screamed and dropped back into the water.
From p. 5 of The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett.

Gerard's:
She held up a hand before Mendez could draw a breath to answer. "What am I thinking? She witnessed her mother's murder. What could be all right after that?
From p. 64 of Secrets To The Grave by Tami Hoag.

  15. Hi Karen and Gerard,

    Three great teaser lines and all so different.

    I would be particularly interested in the Tami Hoag, as I have read one of her books before, but many years ago.

  16. I love your header! Your teaser from Wee Men is quite interesting. What type of creature is it? Thanks for sharing!

  17. You all have quite eclectic tastes in books--a sure way to keep reading interesting. The older I get, the more I want to branch out and read different genres. TT helps with this goal.

    Thanks for checking out my TT at Summit Musings
