Taste Testing Tuesdays


Good morning (or whatever time it is where you are), everyone!
Welcome to another installment of Taste Testing Tuesdays here at Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers!  Taste Testing Tuesdays was inspired by 'Teaser Tuesdays', a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading
On the menu this week...a lighter book than my last reads and so far, so good!  Ready for a taste?  Here it comes...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We walk past the pool and down a set of steps to the dark beach.  I sit on a low concrete wall, breathing in and out deeply, trying to get my bearings.  I usually love the tangy scent of ocean, but tonight it barely registers. -- pg 149, Arranged by Catherine McKenzie
Okay, so from the surrounding sentences that I DID NOT (but really did) READ when I randomly selected this teaser make mention of an event that's about to take place in the next 24-48 hours.  A life changing event....but wait, didn't they only just meet?  Oh boy....this could get interesting.  So far, I'm enjoying the read and with this passage, I can't wait to reach this point in the book so I can know EXACTLY what's going on...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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 participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Until next time....happy reading!

I look forward to your review, because I've been trying to decide whether to read this. It sounds like it could be good. Great teaser!

I'm looking forward to your review of this one too. Modern day arranged marriages are a fascinating concept to me.
