Teaser Tuesday - Last Chance for Justice


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!  

Before Lynn could answer, an overhead light flipped on, and the the two women jumped as they turned back toward the door.  Framed by the outside light, a man who appeared to be in his mid- to late sixties stood in the open doorway, staring at them, a gleam in his dark eyes that did nothing to calm Lynn's already fragile nerves.

Though it was the middle of June and summer was almost officially upon them, the day itself seemed as drab and colorless as Lynn Myers's shoulder-length hair before her Clairol touch-up, and she had no reason to believe that tomorrow would be any different, which for the most part suited her just fine.  Sameness represented security to Lynn, and she thrived on it-even pursued it with passion.  But opposites attract, as they say, and life with Daniel had contained little, if any, sameness from day to day.

I haven't read this one, but now it's going on my list. I like the idea of someone believing that "sameness" represents security.

Here's MY TUESDAY MEMES POST

This sounds interesting. I have a co-worker who said he wanted to get rid of all the variables in his life. That does sound a little boring. Here's Mine
