Teaser Tuesday

Today I'm participating in Teaser Tuesday. This weekly meme is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.


The rules:
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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser today is from page 13 of With a Name like Love by Tess Hilmo:
"As she passed by, the shop woman muttered, 'If'n you're asking me, I'd say you were looking for a mess of trouble invitin' that Koppel boy to your celebration. He'll bring bad luck upon you and your whole clan - plus shoo us good people away."

I'm going to be taking a short blog break while my kids are on fall break from school. Next week I'll post on Monday and Thursday instead of my usual Tuesday/Thursday schedule. Have a great week, everyone! And if you have a teaser to share, I'd love to hear it!

I love the "shoo us good people away". It's very telling.

PS: I changed my URL and username back to southpaw, but managed to mess up my feeds.

I love how this proves that teasers aren't just in the beginning of a book.

Enjoy that fall break!

Thanks for the teaser.

I'm reading Skulduggery Pleasant, Playing with Fire. It's the 2nd in the series. I loved the first one.

Page 205:
"His hand dipped into the pocket, removing the straight razor.
'So good to have it back. It's la part of me, you know? Like a little piece of my soul.'"
