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!

Today’s tease comes from Cheap Cabernet by Cathie Beck.

“And then the coup de grâce: A woman could, even as life ate her alive, find fun and joy and adventure in each day. Even if she is falling apart at the seams, even if life let her down on an almost hourly basis, extracting, at an excruciating slow but methodical pace everything she’d hung her heart on-hell, even if she couldn’t make it to the bathroom in time-there was always a sidesplitting joke. She could still live large, drum money up and give it away to those worse off, blindside a best friend with gifts, rub another’s back when her heart got smashed to smithereens. Once, I never knew that.” (from the ARC copy)

I know this was more than two sentences but I thought they were all too good to split up.

How are you going to tease?
