Tuesday Teasers: Christian Fiction and Non-fiction


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:

Oh God, she prayed frantically.  If you're really there, don't let Alex do this to me.  Put stumbling blocks in his way.   
From pg. 35 of The Scarlet Thread by Francine Rivers


Gerard's:
"She's okay now," the brothelkeeper announced, rolling away some cooking pots he'd knocked on top of her in his haste to extinguish the fire." Alive, no problem!"
From page 95 of Behind the Beautiful Forevers-Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity by Katherine Boo

  5. Awesome teasers from two completely different books. I wonder what Alex is going to do to her. And I wonder how the other person got caught on fire. =] Thanks for sharing and visiting my TT. =]

  7. Two good teasers. The first one made me wonder what the heck Alex is trying to do to her. The second one made me want to know more about the brothel keeper, his brothel, and the woman he'd pelted with cooking pots!
    My Teaser is from London Broil.
