Teaser Tuesdays - February 2

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!

'Under the Cajun Moon' by Mindy Starns Clark

'"Ms. Ledet, may we see your hands please?"

Startled, I opened my eyes to find myself back in the hotel room. Detective Walters and another woman were standing in front of me expectantly. Kevin was dead, I reminded myself, and though I knew there was still more of last night for me to remember, the two people standing here and staring at me were obviously waiting for something.

"Excuse me?" I asked, blinking.

"Your hands. May we see your hands?"

I held my hands out in front of me. As I did, I noticed for the first time since waking up in this strange place that my perfectly manicured fingernails were dirty.'

Ok, so I just had to give you this much. I just bought this book today and started reading it on the train on the way home. I've just got to this page and can't wait for more! Mindy's books are always great, and it's special for me because I get mentioned on the acknowledgements page, because I'm a member of Mindy's online CONSENSUS group.

PS. - Wednesday 3rd February - I was up late last night reading this and couldn't stay awake any longer, so the first thing I did this morning was finish this book. I would recommend starting it in the morning when you have a whole day to read it, because you won't want to put it down!
