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!
Every time I look in the mirror and see my dime-silver hair and my eyes dark as molasses — every time I look across the water to Broken Tooth, hoping that the girl thinking of me will soon come to my shore — I’m reminded of my stupidity.
And I hate myself only a little for hoping she’s just as unwise.

“Everyone comfortable being on their own?” asked Cora in her take-charge kind of voice. “By which I, of course, mean Nellie. Michiko, I think you’ll be just fine.”
“I’m good. I could’a taken them, if Michiko hadn’t.” Nellie wasn’t entirely certain she spoke the truth, but she’d done okay with the creepy eyeball man, and then there was the footman the other night. Besides worse came to worst, no one was better at disappearing than she was. “How about you, though?”
Cora shrugged and produced a tiny gun from her purse. “I’m good.”
They made their final farewells.
And then they were off.
Three girls into the night.
