Teaser Tuesday – 11th October, 2016

Standard

Teaser

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat.
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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This is my choice of the day:
So Many Boots So Little Time – Book 3 of The MisAdventures of Miss Lilly series by Kalan Chapman Lloyd
3% I took a right at the last stoplight on the edge of town and hit the gas a little harder on the long somanybootsstretch toward a dirt-road turnoff, anxious to find out what the hell was going on at home. I rounded a curve topping the hill that led into the valley where most of the ranch lay. It was mid-March, and everything was stretching and growing, shaking the crackly brown and gray, shedding the huddled posture of winter.

BLURB: “You need to stop all this yoga crap and find your inner badass again.”
Old love. New Love. A love you wish would just die. A kinder, gentler Lilly? Small-town lawyer Lilly Atkins has calmed down. She’s doing yoga, her hair is relatively tame, and she hasn’t shot anyone in a while.
But with bad boy Cash Stetson out of rehab, former FBI agent-turned-attorney Spencer Locke dogging her steps, and a ghost from her past who just won’t go away, her trigger finger is starting to itch. When cattle rustlers hit a little too close to home, and she’s forbidden to investigate, the only thing to do is get up off the yoga mat and grab her gun. Will Lilly stay zen? Or get her groove back?

As you can see, this is very early days with this latest read. And it is completely different from my usual fare – but I was beguiled by the blurb and felt the need for a change. So far I’m enjoying the humour and Chapman Lloyd’s snappy prose. I just hope she can also write anjoyable mystery…

  1. Hi Sarah,

    Despite the fact that reviewers seem unanimous in their view that these books can be read as stand alone stories, I’m not really sure that the genre is one I would enjoy, so I shall be keen to read what your final thoughts are.

    Having said that, your teaser lines are intriguing and I have, in the past, found myself doing the exact same thing – driving just that little bit too fast in my haste to get home, when I have believed that there was a problem waiting there for me.

    Thanks for sharing and ‘Happy Reading’ 🙂

    Yvonne
