Short of hitting the woman with the kettle, or engaging in some kind of unseemly wrestling match and treading on Tubs in the process, there was nowhere to go. Sheila took hold of her face.
[FYI: Tubs is the cat.]
This week's Tuesday Teaser is from Torn by Gilli Allan. My two sentences are at about 70% on my Kindle.
Synopsis from Amazon: By escaping London, ex-city trader, Jessica, believes she has put the turmoil of her old life behind her. From now on her young son, Rory, is her number one priority. But living in the country is not the untroubled idyll she dreamt of. Nothing is as it first appears. There are challenges to face and hard choices to be made. And, in the face of temptation, old habits die hard. She is torn between the suitable man and the unsuitable boy.
Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.
