Teaser Tuesday: Rose Hill by Pamela Grandstaff



Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Miz B at Should be Reading and asks you to :
1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3 . Share 2 "teaser"sentences also citing the title of the book and the author and in that way people can have great recommendations if they like the "teaser.
4. Please avoid spoilers!

Today's teaser is taken from Rose Hill by Pamela Grandstaff. Maggie, one of the main characters, her mother Bonnie and her best friend Hannah are at the funeral for the murder victim, Theo.

"I think they all want to be sure he's really dead," replied Maggie, for which Bonnie Fitzpatrick gave her daughter a sharp pinch on the inside of the arm and a stern look of reprimand.

"I separated the two of you because I know you can't behave," Bonnie said. "Try to act like grown women, the both of you."

Pamela will be visiting here tomorrow with a Q & A and an 8 book giveaway! Be sure to come back Wednesday, Feb 10th for a visit.

  2. Love the teaser, I remember going to a funeral. I thought the woman's eyes blinked. Spooky! It wasn't long before I left the funeral and went home. Would love to read Rose Hill.

  3. Good teaser..wondering who is dead, is it a mystery with humor undertones...Rose Hill will probably go on my TBR list.

  8. The last "comment" was deleted by me as this is NOT the place to leave excerpts of your unpublished book due to disputes with your publisher.
