Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • 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!

"I see no difficulty there," declared McClellan. "The question is what to do with Miss Acton tonight."

From The Interpretation of Murder by Jed Rubenfeld, p. 88.


  1. Your teaser lines are intriguing. I searched out the full synopsis and this has gone straight on to my 'wish list', it's my kind of book, for sure.

    Happy New Year


  2. Hmm sounds interesting! Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year :) You can find my teaser at The Bookish Snob

  3. Very intriguing teaser! What do they do with Miss Action? I have two teasers this week. My YA teaser is from Anna and the French Kiss and my adult teaser is from The Secret History of the Pink Carnation. I guess I was in a mood for romance. Happy reading!

  4. Very interesting! I'm curious to see what happens with Miss Acton. Mine is from a Courtney Milan book entitled Unveiled:


    Have a great one!


  5. This sounds like something I would like...a nice departure from Vampire stuff! LOL

    Here's mine:

  6. Great teaser! This sounds fascinating! My TT is at Coffee Table Press

  7. Here is my teaser from Nature's Secret Messages: Hidden in Plain Sight by Elaine Wilkes (Page 3):

    "We lie in the lap of immense intelligence." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Stop. Look. Listen. My kindergarten teacher taught me that. I remember carefully lining up the tips of my patent-leather shoes exactly at the edge of the curb and stopping–then carefully looking to my right and left, quiet and aware, listening for any clues. Feeling that it was safe to proceed, I'd grasp my classmate's hand, jump off the curb, and happily venture into unknown territories on the other side of the street.

    Now I barely glance from side to side as I hurry on my way.

    What happened? Where did that wide-open feeling of awareness go? In the rush of adulthood, it seems to vanish, but what would happen if we simply stopped, looked and listened…even as busy adults?

    As a learning addict, I've hunted for insights through countless books, seminars, experts, masters and more. Eventually, I realized that my kindergarten teacher had it right from the beginning, long before I started my quest. Who knew that she was so profound?

    I have to wonder what Miss Acton did.

    Mine is here: http://storytreasury.wordpress.com/2010/12/28/readerly-teaser-tuesday-2/

  9. Adding the quote and the title together has me a bit worried about Miss Acton!

    My teaser is here
