Evening Kindle-ites! Here is this weeks edition of Teaser Tuesday! What? You’ve never heard of it? Well.. let me fill you in. Teaser Tuesday is a fantastic way to get a sneak peak at book you may or may not have ever considered reading before PLUS… you get a chance to see what everyone else has to offer.
All you have to do is:
– Grab your current read
– Open to a random page
– Share (in the comments) 2 “teaser” sentences (or a paragraph…I’m not picky) from somewhere on that page (BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! you don’t want to give too much away!)
– And then tell us where you got it! (Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!)
Hunting For Sparrows by Beatrice Gerard
When attempted breaches of the network firewalls at the datacenter of Wise Woman, Inc. turn the midnight calm into alarm, computer specialist Lauren is confronted with an all too urgent need to decipher the source of these cyber-attacks. Are they the work of a band of hackers or is it some sort of implanted ghost in the machine? Hard on the heels of the untimely death of Wise Woman’s founder, Claire Wise, and with a frantic sell-off of the company’s stock set to recommence at the market’s opening bell, the very survival of this progressive, socially responsible corporation hangs perilously in the balance.

“Richard takes another step backwards, trying to put some distance between ***’s armed hand and his neck. *** sees his worried expression and laughs. She extends her left foot and raises the machete over her head assuming the Daijodan no Kamae stance – the blade over her head, her weight on the rear foot read to jump with a mortal blow. “Don’t be frightened, Richard. This tool is just like you. It lost its edge long ago.”
