Teaser Tuesday

Today's Teaser Tuesday is from Janet Evanovich's and Lee Goldberg's fun read- The Scam.
"Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books And A Beat.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “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!"
"The Scam", pg 226:
 "That would be a tragedy.  Maybe I can save you from that, at least temporarily. We'll pay you a hundred thousand dollars to help us take down a bad guy who launders money for mobsters and terrorists."
"What do I have to do?"
"Kill me," Nick said.
Chet smiled. "I'd be glad to."


  1. I need to read more books by this author. The ones I've read have been great! This sounds like another story I'd enjoy.
    My Tuesday post features a mystery thriller: THE SHADOW CARTEL.

  2. I remember reading some of Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels a long time ago. I didn't realize she also collaborated with other authors. Thanks for sharing! My teaser is from the first in a cozy mystery series by Nancy Atherton and can be found at:

  3. I like all of Janet Evanovich's books but these Fox & O'Hare series I especially like- it reminds me of Remington Steele (for those who were not watching adult shows, or maybe alive in the 80's! and the snappy fun dialogue between the lawless con-artist and the (former) straight-laced FBI agent. Also the sparks fly! It's just fun but having Lee Goldberg as a co-author lends a more adventurous note than her other reads. Have fun! There's a new one out June 21st- "The Pursuit" I have no problem reading them out of order, at least so far. Enjoy.
