Teaser Tuesday

Welcome to our first edition of Teaser Tuesday, a great weekly activity that helps introduce new books to readers everywhere by posting a two sentence teaser of the books presented.


The Donkey of Tarsus: His Tales about the Apostle Paul By Adele Colvin
"Suddenly, at a turn in the road with no warning at all, a blinding light hit us, and everyone fell to the ground. A voice was heard, which seemed to come from nowhere and yet everywhere.


Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls By Steve Hockensmith, Jane Austen

"How to fillet a spider!" Master Hawksworth barked, and he leapt aside, arm stretched out toward a fresh-spun cobweb in the corner."


Mistress of Rome By Kate Quinn
"But she still sat on the same couch as the Emperor.  In the place his wife would have occupied had she been there."

An Irish Country Girl: A Novel By Patrick Taylor
'No one at all?' Colin was trying to control his voice, but she heard a little quaver."

The Sweet War Man: A Novel By Paul Barcelo
