Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Anyone can play along! 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser this week:

"Danika had to talk to Barbara. The horror of her sister-in-law's home set on fire and Jacob's arrest compounded with Nadine's disappearance sounded like a prescription for a mental breakdown." Page 323, "Sworn to Protect" by DiAnn Mills

This was a new book at the library and a new author for me. I'm sure by the time I've posted this I will have finished the book :) But it's really good - so I wanted to tell you about it.

Just to help a little with the teaser: Jacob is Barbara's husband and Nadine is their teenage daughter.

As a side:
I happen to be hosting a give away for a Lampwork Teal Blue Book Thong Bookmark!. You can never have too many bookmarks :)

  1. What's better then " a perscription for a mental breakdown ??? " awesome sentence !Ok so I had read "The Other Boleyn Girl" by Phillipa Gregory and loved it so I got another book by the same author, " The Queens Fool"
    pg 151' " She did not even flicker a sideways glance at me, and in that absolute control I saw at once that she was a consummate plotter and that the queen was right to fear her."

    This is the third book I've read by this author and I am quite taken with it !
