I feel certain the young woman saw the puppy come aboard, but now Puzzle sleeps upside down in my arms, her round belly upward, feet akimbo, head limp and lolling backward toward the aisle. Gravity has pulled down the puppy's ears and lips and bared her fangs. Her eyes are open but unseeing, rolled up in her head with the whites exposed. It's not a good look. It's not even canine -- more Hell-Spawn Bunny of the Undead. -- pg 40, Scent of the Missing by Susannah Charleson

As much as he liked Betty, he was too busy today to get lost in one of her mini-lectures about selling a poor widow more than she needed and certainly more than she could afford, the word certainly always firing through her rounded lips like a musket ball. When she protruded her lips like that, they kind of reminded Burt of Donald Trump, something he would certainly keep to himself, even though he thought she wore the pouty look quite well. -- pg 49, Stray Affections by Charlene Baumbich
I know, I know....probably not the best choice of quotes, but every time I opened the book I got something spoiler-ish. This will have to do and at the very least gives you a little chuckle. ^_^
Evan Chambers was his big brother and always would be, and brothers stuck together and helped each other out, even if the situation seemed to be reversed. So when it was time to get Evan out of his drunken stupor and find a tuxedo that would make him look decent when he went to represent the Omega Chis at the All-Greek Formal, the task fell to Calvin by massive consensus. -- pg 47, Greek: Double Date by Marsha Warner
Oh Evan, really...suck it up! Take a page from Cappie's book of life.... LOL!
