"Teaser Tuesdays"

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! 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!
Last week I read "Nerve" an interesting book about poise under pressure, serenity under stress, and the brave new science of fear and cool. This week I wanted some lighter reading, therefore, I choose this book, Electric Blue, by Nancy Bush.  Jane Kelly is a new and worthy addition to the private investigator scene. Unique and extremely likable, she has a quick wit. Move over, Stephanie Plum. You've got competition from Nancy Bush's funny, feisty, immensely likable new heroine.

If a stakeout is bad in the comfort of one's car, it's murder on a crisp to chilly night, standing on one's feet. I tucked my self into a dark corner nearby William's house, next to a hedge of arborvitae and the blasted fence I couldn't scale.
