Teaser Tuesday ~ The Centurion's Wife

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!

Linux reined in beside him, gave him a long look, and snorted. "Wait until you've been there a few days. Then you'll know this place for the snake pit it is."

Good teaser! Hope you're enjoying your book :)

Here are our teasers :)

Have a great day!

I've not heard of this one at all. I'll have to give it a closer look. My teaser is from a medical thriller that involves terrorism: "The Ovary Wars" by Mike Hogan. Women are being unknowingly (and unwillingly!) sterilized by a foreign power, which is leading to economic devastation. Quite an original and unique idea for terrorism, if you ask me.

Here's the teaser: [[We need to get a few of those brainy guys from the Institute of Population Demographics, and have them develop a product that can affect China like Ovamort affected the United States. Of course, all of this has to be off the record, and if by accident we are discovered, we can always justify our actions by saying we were trying to solve the world population problem.]]

I have almost all of Janette Oke's books except the children ones even some that are written with Davis Bunn and love to read them over and over, but "The Centurion's Wife" just was not my cup of tea.

I read the book but it is one that I don't want to re-read and won't buy the sequels to it.
