Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is a meme formerly hosted by MizB and now being brought to us by thepurplebooker.com.

The rules are --

• 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! Everyone loves Teaser Tuesday.

Ok, so I used to participate in this meme often, as well, but somehow drifted away.  It is fun, though and does introduce you to new books/authors.

My teaser comes from "Christmas Bells" by Jennifer Chiaverini.

"How inexpressibly sad are all the holidays!" he wrote in his journal later that night."

"As he waited for the ink to dry upon the page, in his imagination he lived again his last Christmas with Fanny, saw vividly her loving smile, felt her touch upon his arm, heard her gentle, merry laugh close to his ear, felt her soft, tender lips brush his cheek."

Not sure how much of a "tease" these are but here they are!
