Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To play along, just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page.
• Share 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 TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
My tease for today is from Witchwood Estate – books 1 and 2 – by Patti Roberts
The old woman, unaware that Andrew had woken, reached out across him holding an antique blue bottle, pointing it directly at Alexandria. Out of the corner of his eye, he could see shortbread crumbs speckling the front of Alexandria’s t-shirt.
A white mist, radiating slowly from Alexandria, rose then drifted into the narrow neck of the bottle. Alexandria began to fade, disappearing before his eyes. He tried to move his arms, to strike out at the old woman and knock the bottle away, but they sat limp and heavy as lead in his lap.
Oh, what a treat this book is! Patti has such a good story-telling voice, there’s no way you can resist her. I could read Patti’s books again and again and again, in an uninterrupted cycle. They make you dream, they make you imagine unusual worlds, they hold an impossible amount of magic. Absolutely love this book.
