Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading.

*******************************************

Anyone can 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!

*******************************************************
Today The teaser is from the book 'The wedding gift' by Kathleen McKenna

"They looked like slaughtered calves. Well, to be strictly honest, Mama looked like a slaughtered calf and Jessie looked like the one who could be doing the slaughtering, but mad or not, she still didn´t have any better ideas than Mama did." p 87 
"Then Mama and Daddy came inside; they just stared at us with scared faces until I thought I would scream. Mama made a little squeking sound and I reached out my hand toward her, but it was Daddy who walked over to me and sat down on the stairs beside me." p 171

Oh wow, those are very interesting teasers, especially saying that she looked like a slaughtered calf! The title seems odd with the two teasers. I am tempted to see if my library happens to have this book!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Oh WOW, that sounds so creepy LOL! x) I'm not much of a scary-book person, but I have to admit that I'm super intrigued by this one!
