Teaser Tuesday - May 7, 2013 Edition

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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 week my TT is from To Have and To Kill: A Wedding Cake Mystery by Mary Jane Clark

Chapter 4

     A disheveled man wearing a torn jacket, filthy pants and woolen gloves with the fingertips cutoff sat huddled over a heating grate in the sidewalk. 

     Piper took a $5 bill from her wallet and handed it to him.  "Merry Christmas," she said.  Food.  Promise me you'll use it for food."

Piper Donovan, an actress who has been having a hard time of it living in Manhattan, has returned home to her parents’ small town in New Jersey. She’s been helping out at her mother’s bakery, which makes it perfect that Piper’s close friend, Glenna Brooks, has asked her to prepare the cake for her upcoming wedding. However, things aren’t as perfect as they seem, and when there is a murder, Piper is determined to figure out what happened and protect her friend.

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!


  1. This sounds good. I have been in the mood for a good mystery. Come and see my teasers for The Rules for Disappearing by Ashley Elston and Twice Tempted by Jeaniene Frost. Happy reading!

  2. Sounds interesting. Mine is from an SF novel, The Skin Map, by Stephen R. Lawhead:

  3. That title alone is a grabber! :) Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  4. I like books by this author, so I'd keep going. I've given up attaching strings to my donations. Use it for beer, whatever. Enjoy life! Here's Mine

  5. Nice teaser. I enjoy reading Mary Jane Clark every now and again -- she has replaced Mary Higgins Clark for me ;-)

    My teaser is from THE HAUNTING SEASON by Michelle Muto.

  6. She has a good heart. I think my sister would like this one. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  7. Great teaser! This sounds like an interesting cozy mystery. I'll have to check it out when I get the chance. Thanks for sharing and for stopping by my blog!
