Tuesday Teaser


TEASER TUESDAYS (Hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading) asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.

  • Let the book fall open to a random page.

  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.

  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

  • Please avoid spoilers!

  • (p.179.... "The tricky thing about success is, the more you have, the more you fear it will disappear.  On the surface, we had everything we'd been fighting for all these years".

    I knew this book would bring tears to my eyes, but I am so happy I decided to read it.

    1. I agree with that line Diane. It's so true!

      I'll be adding this book in my TBR pile. I love Patrick Swayze and my mother is a big fan.

      Happy reading!

    2. Dirty Dancing is one of my favourite movies of all times. Ghost too no less memorble.

    4. Wonderful teaser! Those are profound words that really make you think. He was obviously not one of those snooty celebs but a kind, good and talented man.

      I'm glad you're enjoying the book, Diane. I imagine it's very sad in some places but hopwfully joyful and funny in other parts.

      Thanks for a great teaser!

    6. I just got this one with the B&W cover in my mailbox. I already perused it (is that cheating?) because I loved the guy. I had the Dirty Dancing poster of him up in my room till I moved out of my dad's house.
      So sad.

    7. I bet this is a great book. Everyone in my house would probably jump at the chance to read it. My stepdaughter is going through a Patrick Swayze phase, and my mother-in-law has been in one since Dirty Dancing.

    9. Good teaser. I don't think I'll read it, even though I imagine it will be a good, touching book.

    10. I really believe that -- and will miss seeing the young, healthy Patrick. But that's the great thing about movies...they are always around.

      I will be visiting Austenland:
