Teaser Tuesdays-Captivity



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!
Here is mine:

"The truth is harder to see and serve these days, so she's thankful for her eccentric employer (dare she say friend?). Clara Gill is a beacon of blunt truth but unreliable as solace goes, given her temperament."

~Page 118 , Captivity by Deborah Noyes (This is an Advanced Reader's Copy, so the page number may be different in the final published book)

I like it. It's one of those teasers that actually makes me want to read the book (rather than just find out what happened in that line of story). Thanks!

I read about this book on Amazon.com and it sounds like a very unusual story. Great teaser! I hope you are enjoying the book. I've heard good things about The Ghosts of Kerfol, her other book.

Here are my teasers.

Very nice teaser. Sometimes it can be hard to be friends with a blunt friend.

Here's mine.

kaye said...

I guess we all need a friend like that. Kaye-the road goes ever ever on

Lori said...

Very cool teaser. The truth is harder to see, especially when there is being so little of it done. ;) I hope that you enjoy your book. Here's mine.

Calico Crazy said...

Intriguing teaser, I'm curious enough to check this one out. My teaser is up at Calico Contemplations.

Lisa said...

Interesting - I don't think I've heard of this book.

My teaser is here.

Becky said...

I have never heard of that book, but I will look forward to the review

Phyl said...

I really like that teaser, a lot. First, I love the author's description of the person; it brings her absolutely to life. But I also like the idea of her being what I call a "prickly personality." You get good support and a lot of truth from such a person, but need to be prepared to grit your teeth and be irritated sometimes. But it's always worth it.

Anyway, thanks for the teaser. My own is at Bookishgal.

Book ♥ Soulmates said...
