Teaser Tuesday 24: Truly, Madly

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 (at least) two “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 participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!


This week's teaser comes from Truly, Madly by Heather Webber. I highly recommend this book. There were so many great and funny lines that it was difficult choosing which to post. I could easily do an entire Thursday Thirteen on this one! For today, the following will have to do.

Where are we? Sean and Lucy are in Great Eskar Park near Boston, Massachusetts. At night. How's that for setting the tone? *g*




A look of horror swept across his face as he stared at a length of human bone. "What is that?"

Through chattering teeth, I said, "The question should be 'Who is that?' And the answer is 'I don't know.'"


(pg 123)




Book blurb:
Meet Lucy Valentine; sassy, fabulously original…and psychic.

Lucy hails from a long line of matchmakers known as Valentine, INC. According to family legend, the Valentines have been blessed by Cupid with the ability to help couples find true love. Trouble is Lucy’s powers were zapped away by an electrical surge and now all she can find are lost objects.

But what good is that in the matchmaking world?

Lucy is about to find out when she tries to solve a murder and winds up falling into a romance of her own.
