Teaser Tuesday–My Brother’s Shadow and Don’t Mess with Texas

I got a little distracted last week with other review books and work, so I had set My Brother’s Shadow by Monika Schroder aside. I picked it up again on Sunday, and after struggling through the first chapter, I have gotten caught up in Moritz’s daily struggles in 1918 Germany.  This is a really good read!

“Looks like the police are smarter than you thought,” I whisper to Otto as we leave the station.  He averts his eyes and mumbles, “I wish we had eaten the sausage on the train.”

I need something a little lighter in tone for my on the go read, so I went with Don’t Mess with Texas by Christie Craig.  I hope it is as humorous as it looks.

“It’s the right thing,” she repeated then rested her forehead against the steering wheel.  After one or two seconds, she squared her shoulders and mentally pulled up her big girl panties.  Letting go of a deep breath, she stared at the Dumpster adjacent to her car and hoped this wasn’t a foreshadowing of the evening.


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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!
