Teaser Tuesday - The Do-Over

The Do-Over
Today's Teaser is from The Do-Over by Kathy Dunnehoff.


"She knew all about lines. She lived her life not crossing them, coloring only inside them, and never drawing them."
(At Location 1321 - approx 22% - on my Kindle)


Synopsis from Amazon:
Just before her fortieth birthday, Mara Jane Mulligan, devoted wife and mother, runs out of bubble bath, and the ensuing panic attack drives her to Canada for more. She realizes that one foamy soak probably won't cure what ails her, so she takes a 30 day vacation from her life. (What woman doesn't need one of those?)

Surely her family will understand. Her son's visiting Grandma, and maybe her husband won't even miss her. Unfortunately, her husband doesn't miss much and tracks her to Abundance, a Vancouver bubble bath company. 

As her 30 days sail by, Mara Jane Mulligan discovers she has a decision to make that even Dorothy couldn't avoid... Will she click her heels for home or kick them up for good?

  1. This sounds like a really fun read. Love the teaser and the whole bit about lines! My problem with lines is always having to stand in them and wait.

    Happy reading this week!

  6. Thanks for featuring The Do-Over! What a nice surprise. My favorite thing about lines? After you've written them, you don't remember, and it always comes as a nice surprise!

  12. Sounds like it's time to get out the eraser and remove a few lines before they start criss-crossing her face.

    1. You're right! The protagonist takes all kinds of chances -- changes her clothing style, uses a different name, etc. A fun story. ~ Sandy N.
