"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!

This week I am reading "Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker" by Jennifer Chiaverini. I am enjoying this historical novel.

"Mrs Lincoln could scarcely stroll down Pennsylvania Avenue without reporters setting telegraph lines abuzz with the news, so when she and her cousin Mrs. Grimsley traveled to New York on a shopping expedition in early May, newspapermen hounded their every step."  (Sounds like Alex Baldwin wasn't the first to be hounded by paparazzi.) I'm reading this on my Nook, it says this is page 56.

  8. Excellent teaser! I've been curious about this one -- sounds like something I'd enjoy, too. Strange to think of the First Lady strolling down Pennsylvania Avenue, though -- I doubt that Michelle does that very often.
