Where Is Your Bookmark? (10/04/2016)

If you haven't already, please take time a minute to vote for my October TBR List Book of the Month!



Every Tuesday Diane from Bibliophile By the Sea First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where participants share the first paragraph (or a few) of a book they are reading or thinking about reading soon. It is also where I share my first impressions about the book I am sharing.

YOUNG GIRL WANTED - GOOD WAGE. Well-to-do man seeking a housekeeper who is matrimonially minded. Room and board offered. Reply to box-holder 4827.
I handed the newspaper back to Mrs. Headison. "I suppose you replied to the box-holder?" 
She nodded briskly. "I did, posing as a girl who had just come to town from Buffalo, with experience not in housekeeping, but in dancing, and with aspirations for the stage. We can all imagine what he must have made of that." 

Every Tuesday, Jenn from Books And A Beat hosts Teaser Tuesdays at which time participants grab their current read, open to a random page, and share two (2) "teaser" sentences from that page while avoiding any spoilers.


Teaser from 20% of Lady Cop Makes Trouble:
"What I was trying to say," I nearly shouted, making them both take a step back, "was that I let an inmate escape tonight."
"You didn't!" Fleurette gasped. 
"Of course she didn't." Norma said. 
"I did."

What do you think? Would you keep reading?  

I just barely started reading Lady Cop Makes Trouble by Amy Stewart, the second in the Kopp Sisters series, based on the life of one of the first female sheriff deputies in the United States. I enjoyed the first in the series, Girl Waits With Gun, quite a bit and am looking forward to reading more of Lady Cop Makes Trouble, in the coming days.

What are you reading at the moment?  Is it anything you would recommend?
