Teaser Tuesday: Shades of Morning

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  1. Grab your current read
  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share 2 "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  4. Share the title and author as well so that other readers can add the book to their wish lists if they are enticed!
***Be Careful Not to include Spoilers!! (Make sure that your teaser doesn't give too much away so that you do not ruin it for future readers!)

This teaser is from Shades of Morning by Marlo Schalesky, page 189:

"Come on lady, it's not like I've got a nose ring. Of course, if that woman kept gawking, Marnie would be tempted to get one, whether she could blow her nose right or not."

  14. I am now following your blog and am intrigued by your teaser. Made me think of a book I finished recently by Kathy Herman called High Stakes which I recently reviewed at my blog http://memyselfiread.blogspot.com/ (one of the characters was new in town and was the center of gossip and distrust because of her body piercings and such)
    Anyhow, my teaser is from a completely different type of book.

  15. BTW, Kathy Herman is a Christian suspense writer, you might like her books.
