Teaser Tuesday ~ Let Them Eat Cake

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!  

She couldn't hurt my job, but I needed to win her over if I was going to lobby for the manager's position.

Catbert avoided catching my eye—never a good sign. He prowled the aisles all day but didn't stop to say hello or ask about my plans for the weekend.

The first tease reminds me of when I worked in an office. I'd keep reading. Enjoy!

Hmmm. From the title and the image on the cover I'm guessing this has something to do with a bakery in Seattle???? Not sure about the teaser but I'll probably give the Free Sample on my Nook a look.:)

Not sure about that intro, I'd have to read a bot more. Thanks for joining in - I appreciate it.

I like this one - language seems sharp and possibly going to be funny.
