Tuesday (5/5) Teaser

Hosted by: MizB (@ http://shouldbereading.wordpress.com/)

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall to a random page.
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • Share the title 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!Please avoid spoilers!

I have two (this is becoming a more frequent occurrence) books I'm reading. A cozy mystery and a non-fiction/memoir.

Here is the cozy teaser:

I forced a laugh—which sounded only slightly less phony than it actually was. "Probably just has an active imagination."

From p. 79 of The Ghost and the Haunted Mansion by Alice Kimberly (aka Cleo Coyle, aka Alice Alfonsi & Marc Cerasini).

Here is the non-fiction/memoir teaser:

One morning during residency, at our usual post-rounds seven a.m. team breakfast (after arriving for duty a couple hours earlier), my colleagues and I were joking around—and fantasizing—about the life of dermatology residents. One of the more contentious members of our group decided to put them to the test.

From p. 61 (a not so random page—the book opened to where my bookmark is) of Another Day in the Frontal Lobe: A Brain Surgeon Exposes Life on the Inside by Katrina Firlik.
