Miz B and Teaser Tuesdays asks you to:

 The Language of Secrets; Dianne Dixon
(quote is from an advanced reader's edition)
(p.7)...." The nursing home's doors closed behind him and Justin was once again in the parking lot. Two hospital workers, a man and a pretty girl, were leisurely loading a gurney--with its bagged and zippered occupant--into the back of a mortuary van."

  5. Nice teaser! I love the disconnect between what is in the bag/gurney and how the nurses are handling it.

  6. The image made me feel sad. I think it was the use of the word 'leisurely.' What good writing to convey so much in so few words. I'll be on the lookout for this book. Thanks, Diane.

  11. Nursing homes sure are depressing places. I honestly can't imagine working in one, hard-hearted as it may sound.
