Tuesday Teasers: 2 Non-fiction and 1 Historical 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 (well, we cheat and choose specific ones)
  • 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.   

Dressed in blue scrubs, hands scoured and snapped into Latex gloves, Kallman walked into the operating room and up to the stainless steel table where Bigley lay on his back, prepped and draped, his ravaged body covered by a warming blanket. He stared down at the chaos before him and froze.

Tom turned his horse and headed out of the gap. "Quit yapping and let's move out."
"You're going to die, Tom."
From Sharpshooter in Petticoats by Mary Connealy. (Historical fiction)

And they were giving him attention because he had for a long time astonished them with his magic arts. But when they believed Philip preaching the good news about the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were being baptized, men and women alike.
From Acts 8:11-12 of the New American Standard Bible. (non-fiction)

Happy Reading!


  1. I have Bunker Hill on my list. I wasn't as thrilled with Reconstructing Amelia as others were. The title "Sharpshooter in Petticoats" cracks me up, but I'm sure it's not for me. The bear book sounds scary.

  2. The first one is chilling, if even the surgeon is shocked.

  3. Ooh. Nice teasers. The first two caught my attention. Very suspenseful. Thanks for stopping by :)

  4. Sharpshooter in Petticoats makes me think of Annie Oakley! And the bear story sounds too scary for me (having had a bear encounter once myself). By the way, I always enjoy your blog headers. Beautiful kitty.
    My Teaser is from BLUEBONNET BRIDE.

  5. Compelling teasers. I love Mary Connealy.

  6. Hi Karen and Gerard,

    I'm afraid that Gerard wins out in the teaser stakes this week, although I do feel a little guilty about 'liking' those lines, when it must have been such a harrowing experience for both surgeon and patient. If they had come from a fiction thriller, I would have felt much more comfortable about it.

    I don't read non-fiction, so this is probably not a book for me, but thanks for sharing.


  7. Wow, LOVE Gerard's. Gotta check that one out.

  8. That first one with the bear...yikes! Thanks for visiting!

  9. Powerful set of teasers this week!

    My TT

  10. Great teaser -- that first one has me imagining all kinds of grossness, though...

    Here's my teaser from SUDDENLY ROYAL by Nichole Chase.

  11. We get bear maulings around here fairly often. Seems like every year or two some idiot gets eaten up in Glacier. Now and then they even wander around town. We had one incident a few years ago in which a woman beat a bear off with a zucchini as it tried to come into her kitchen. I kid you not. Mind you it was just a little black bear. No way a zucchini would be enough against a grizzly.

  12. Fees on payday loans are high can be astronomically high,
    sometimes half of the loan and if the loan isn't paid, then that is another fee to add to it. DTI is an important factor in how a person can run their finances. An FHA underwriter will take a second look at the information.
