Teaser Tuesday


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 from The Life O'Reilly by Brian Cohen. If you'd like to win a copy of this book, please enter the giveaway on the original post.

"Just my calming view of the park in the day's infancy, my warm feelings about Dawn and even Jordan . . . my dream of a new life that I was starting to see more and more vividly.

I thought we could be a family." (pg 136)

  33. Remember the expression for a really good life: "life of Riley"? I wonder if your book title is a take on that old saying? I see that you also are fortunate to be retired. We live the life of O'Reiley for sure ,right? Thanks for checking out my blog--new to TT.
