MizB of Should Be Reading hosts the Teaser Tuesdays weekly event
Here are the rules:
* Grab your current read
* Let the book fall open to a random page
* Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12
*You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
* Please avoid spoilers!
This week’s teaser is:
“Heart pounding with fear and regret, Olivia Keene ran as thought hellbounds were on her heels. As though her very life depended upon her escape. ”
pg. 15 – The Silent Governess by Julie Klassen
– Three chapters in, and I am hooked! Every chapter the danger is heightened, and our heroine Olivia Keene finds herself deeper and deeper in trouble. I’m so intrigued by the plot about a young woman who saves her mother from her father’s attack, but ends up on the run. I confess the one thing that I’m disappointed about is that I thought Olivia was mute. I thought she was literally a “silent” governess. Nope. Not so much. She’s just hiding secrets. But it’s still a lovely book with beautiful writing! Highly recommended so far.
