Today's Teaser Tuesday is from the prologue of 
TEN TINY BREATHS 
by K.A. Tucker

"What the hell does a tiny breath do? Why not a deep breath? Why ten?"

Number of Pages: 264
Genre: 
Contemporary Women's Fiction (maybe Young Adult)

Partial Synopsis (from Goodreads):
     Kacey Cleary’s whole life imploded four years ago in a drunk-driving accident. Now she’s working hard to bury the pieces left behind—all but one. Her little sister, Livie. Kacey can swallow the constant disapproval from her born-again aunt Darla over her self-destructive lifestyle; she can stop herself from going kick-boxer crazy on Uncle Raymond when he loses the girls’ college funds at a blackjack table. She just needs to keep it together until Livie is no longer a minor, and then they can get the hell out of Grand Rapids, Michigan.     
     But when Uncle Raymond slides into bed next to Livie one night, Kacey decides it’s time to run. Armed with two bus tickets and dreams of living near the coast, Kacey and Livie start their new lives in a Miami apartment complex, complete with a grumpy landlord, a pervert upstairs, and a neighbor with a stage name perfectly matched to her chosen “profession.” But Kacey’s not worried. She can handle all of them. What she can’t handle is Trent Emerson in apartment 1D.

    1. I really enjoyed getting to know these characters. The ten tiny breaths are supposed to be a way to deal with stressful situations.

  3. Hi Sandra,

    The only time I take tiny breaths apparently, is when I am in a deep sleep, so I wonder if that is the scenario in your story?

    Funnily enough, the book I am featuring this week, has a very similar premise to your own, of two damaged people coming together, although the setting is completely different.

    Thanks for sharing and have a good week, Yvonne
