First Chapter ~ First Paragraph and Teaser Tuesday

It's Tuesday . . . time for . . . 





First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros now hosted by Yvonne at Socrates' Book Reviews, where bloggers share excerpts from a book they have read, are currently reading, or are planning to read.

Teaser Tuesday hosted by Ambrosia at The Purple Booker, where bloggers post two teaser sentences (no spoilers allowed) from a random page of their current read. 

Today I am featuring a recent blog tour read, Death by Windmill by Jennifer S. Alderson.  The excerpts shared are from an eBook I received from the author in exchange for an honest review.

 

Book Beginning:  1 Mothers and Daughters
March 20--Seattle, Washington

"Are you one hundred percent positive that Gillian won't mind you working on Mother's Day?" Dotty Thompson asked.  From her tone, it was evident that she did not believe a word Lana Hansen was saying.

Teaser:  A dark cloud crossed over Daphne's face.  She stood up and laid her napkin on her chair.  "Excuse me."

What do you think?  Would you continue reading?
This is the third adventure in the Travel Can Be Murder cozy series.  As with the previous two books, the author combines a murder mystery with detailed descriptions of tourist locations that makes readers feel as though they are actually on a tour.  It's armchair travel at its best in a time when most of us have had our travel plans grounded.

I love arm chair traveling, so I don't mind having to do so right now. I like the sound of this book. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “THE SUMMER DEAL”

I've never read a book set in Amsterdam. I like visiting other places via books and I love cozies so I'll check this series out.
