Teaser Tuesday


MizB of Should Be Reading hosts this cool weekly event.
Grab your current read. Share (2) “teaser” sentences from that page. Share the title & author of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR list if they like your teaser. Please avoid spoilers.

This teaser is taken from Bless Your Heart, Tramp by Celia Rivenbark:

Next step: finding painters to give us estimates. These were hilarious indeed and varied wildly. Most ended with: "If you want it done right," and I wanted to say, "Done right? Oh, heavens no! We want as half-assed a job as possible."

This teaser made me laugh. Reminds me of an episode of King of the Hills (I think) where a group of Russians work on the house, leave all the plastic coverings, the heater out of use, and holes in the wall for a couple of days, and then come back to finish the work later.

Nice teaser. Happy readings! =)

Funny enough I just had a painter here last week, but he is one of only two contractors we've had do work that we really like!

Oh the sarcasm in that teaser is great! The title of the book is great as well. I will have to put this on the TBR list based on those two things alone.

Sharon, could you send me your mailing address please? You've won a copy of Testimony by Anita Shreve. I have emailed you but got no response. Thank you.
