Tuesday Teasers: 3 This week (2 non-fiction, one thriller)


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.   
Gerard's:
If Inyo was testing me, then I failed--because I backed off. I chose to keep all of my fingers and refused to wrangle with her over a bunch of goopy marrowbones.
From page 85 of Part Wild by Ceiridwen Terrill.  (I just finished this but I liked it so well I wanted to share a teaser from it.)

Betty planted a parting kiss on Katie's wet nose--"see you next time, sister!"--and off we went.
There wasn't one person on the street who didn't turn around or stop us, as Katie was now irresistible.
From page 61 of Katie Up and Down the Hall--The True Story of How One Dog Turned Five Neighbors into a Family by Glenn Plaskin.

Karen's:  

Honor's heart began beating painfully hard and fast.  Should she throw herself over Emily in an attempt to protect her, or attack him, or plead for mercy?
From page 84 of Lethal by Sandra Brown.
