Teaser Tuesday - 26 May

Teaser Tuesday

The rules are:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) 'teaser' sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title and author of the book that you’re getting your 'teaser' from .. that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given!

Thanks for stopping by my blog too. For those who might post here after me, my own teaser is at Bookishgal.

I read this years ago and adored it. I need to read it again and see the movie!

I've had this one in the TBR pile for years now. "Desire and cooking" - that sounds pretty attractive. I'll have to go look for my copy. Nice teasers!
