Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn @ A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read

  • 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 Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.

Teaser Tuesday #51

This week, my teaser is from Charlaine Harris’ Shakespeare’s Landlord (Lily Bard #1) that I’ve finally gotten to start reading, thanks to the #HW2015 challenge;)

Shakespeare's Landlord cover - (un)Conventional Bookviews

TO SEE OR NOT TO SEE — To Lily Bard, the sleepy town of Shakespeare, Arkansas, was the perfect place to hide from the violence that nearly destroyed her life years before. Today Lily is strong, confident in the martial arts she studies, her looks disguised by her closely cropped hair and baggy clothes. Working as a housecleaner, Lily comes and goes without anyone noticing — until she witnesses a murder.
What Lily Bard saw on that dark night has stripped away her, anonymity and earned her the unwanted attention of a homicide detective and a suspicious community. And with her intense, married, karate instructor showing a passionate interest of his own, Lily’s plan of a private, well-ordered life is coming unhinged. The killer of an unlamented landlord is lurking close by. And while Lily knows the dirt on her neighbors’ dust, drawers, and private live , must admit to a secret of her own: that in the shadow of a brutal murder, she is coming alive again…

 

My Teaser

I bit my lower lip to keep from making noise. I struggled silently with an almost overwhelming urge to jump up and run. After several deep breaths, I won. I steeled myself to do what I had to do, but I couldn’t face doing it in the dark.

What’s your teaser today? Please share – it’s not as if a few more books on my TBR mountain will make that big of a difference 😉

    You know, I still haven’t managed to read ANY Charlaine Harris. I own the first Sookie Stackhouse, but True Blood has me leas than excited to read it and, as a result, I’m just having a hard time making myself try put any of her books. And thus sounds really good, I have a feeling I’m missing out.

    • Oh my, Berls!! The show and the novels are so different when it comes to Sookie! I didn’t really enjoy True Blood all that much (apart from drooling after my favorite viking)… But I enjoyed the books quite a bit. I am going to look at the covers and find one of the scavenger hunt clues to go with the first Sookie Stackhouse story for you 😉

  2. I’ll be reading this one soon! I’ve had it on my TBR for awhile since I enjoy Harris’ Aurora Teagarden a while back and the Sookie ones more recently. Finally it’s up soon – as the result of the #20booksofsummer Challenge.
