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!

“Hello, Elliot!” she warbled, though her expression remained sly. “Have you come to see the new racetrack?”
“Elliot ignored her and faced her father. “What’s going on here?”
Only now did her father turn, but his placid countenance betrayed nothing. “Ah Elliot. Good to see you. You should have a talk with that COR foreman.” He gestured vaguely toward Dee. “She was a full ten minutes moving over the laborers this morning. Is she too far along in her pregnancy to be of any use to us?”
