Teaser Tuesday with Explosive Eighteen

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!
The Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich are fun and easy reads. A lot of them blend together for me. They make me laugh, though. I like the overall story arc, but Stephanie really needs to make up her dang mind. I'm on Team Ranger.
Here's your teaser:
I dropped my new Glock into my purse, along with the stun gun on steroids. I was wearing the GPS watch, pearly earrings, a Band-Aid where the knife had knicked my neck, and a huge Band-Aid on my skinned knee. I was the All-American Girl. (page 163)

You still have two days to enter to win Cherie Reich's giveaway. Just leave a comment on Thursday's guest post. Cherie talks about running a book blog tour and offers some great advice.

  3. Yep, sounds like an American Woman!! My cousing has read all the Stephanie Plum series. I might have to buy this one for her. She's due with her 1st baby within the next two weeks. It might help make the time go by quickly :)

    Here's my teaser: http://collettaskitchensink.blogspot.com/2012/03/teaser-tuesdays-31312.html

  4. I love Janet Evanovich. If you haven't read them, you should also read the between the numbers Plum books, Plum Lucky, Plum Loving, Plum Spooky, Visions of Sugar Plums. She introduces Diesel, a supernatural version of Ranger. Hooboy! He now has his own book series Wicked Appetite and Wicked Business.

    By the way, if you go to her website, you can buy a rangeman t-shirt. :)
