Teaser Tuesday ~ Downtown Green




Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought I would play for fun! 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!
In a town filled with people I cared about, Jerry Turner was an ongoing challenge.  After losing the mayor's race to Eva Hillburn by only a handful of votes, Jerry had turned into a grouch.  
Maybe he'd always been a grouch, come to think about it.  
As a banker, he liked to throw his employer's weight around.  As a political wannabe, he liked to criticize Eva, the newspaper, and anyone or anything else that didn't "do to suit him," as Tammy said.
