Teaser Tuesday - A Very Southern Affair

Picture

My Teaser Tuesday today is from A VERY SOUTHERN AFFAIR by Elaina Lee. It's a fun, light romance--just perfect for summertime. It really captures small-town Belleville, Alabama, where it's set.


He sucked air through the gap in his two front teeth and leaned an arm on the worn counter. "Northerner? You ain't that feller who's here to give us some damn resort we don't need, are ya?"

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 and author too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.

  3. Thanks for the teaser and dropping by Read@UTS! I just finished reading (belatedly!) To Kill a Mockingbird, so the southern theme is perfect!

    1. Helen, this is quite a bit lighter than TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD! But it was fun to read.
