Tuesday Teaser

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Miz B from Should Be Reading.

The rules are as follows:
*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!


(p.19) "The way Mom saw it, women should let the menfolk do the the work because it made them feel more manly. The notion made sense only if you had a strong man willing to step up and get things done, and between Dad's gimp, Buster's elaborate excuses, and Apache's tendency to disappear, it was often up to me to keep the place from falling apart".

  3. I thought Walls' first book was great and from the sound of this teaser, I'd probably think the same about this one. Terrific teaser!

  4. Deja vu or something. While I was window shopping at Amazon last night I saw this book and put it on my wishlist.

    I'll await your review.

  12. This is a terrific teaser! This book is on my tbr list already otherwise I would be writing it down now. Sheesh, 3 men in the house & no one to do the jobs men usually do around the house. Not good!

  13. Sounds like a similar vein of my newest (to me) favorite book this year -- These is my Words. Sometimes a woman's gotta do what a woman's gotta do, and sometimes a girl.
