First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros/Teaser Tuesdays – June 15th

  • by

It’s Tuesday!  It’s time to share your excerpts and teasers from books we are currently reading, have read or are planning to read.  So, feel free to join us by sharing the first paragraph or (a few) of a book you are reading or thinking about reading soon.  This meme is guaranteed to increase your TBR 🙂

Please link your blog post using Mr. Linky below. Make sure the link you enter is the direct link to your Tuesday post, not the main link to your blog. Thank you!

I, also, participate and link up to Teaser Tuesdays.  Here’s info about that meme:

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, now being hosted by Ambrosia at The Purple Booker. 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!

I borrowed this one from Kindle Unlimited.  It looks good.  It has a cat and it’s a cozy mystery.  Sounds perfect to me.

First Chapter… 

The chilly spring morning was the perfect backdrop for my getaway.  Crisp and clear.  I shoved another box into my old Buick’s trunk.  It wouldn’t fit until I forced it in between two other boxes.  I didn’t even care if everything broke.  I needed to escape.  The messy bun at the nape of my neck came loose.  I tightened the ponytail, twisted it quickly around and tucked the ends of my hair back inside.

“I don’t want your advice.  I don’t want to know what you think the spirits are trying to tell me.”  I walked around her and opened the car door.  “I just want a normal, boring life.”  

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Mira Michaels finally calls her old life quits. She moves out of her psychic sister’s house and is on the road to her new life. Her trip to Pennsylvania starts simply, even if her cat, Arnold, can’t stop backseat driving. She refuses to accept that she can hear his kitty voice, until the radio refuses to work. Then, at a rest stop she witnesses a catnapping of the sweet kitty that Arnold has a crush on. Mira promises to chase the catnapper across the northeast and find the cat’s owner all before she must meet her realtor at her new house. Antics ensue.
