Taste Testing Tuesdays (44)

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 ... one book I'm on the verge of finishing, and two more lingering from last week due to a lack of reading time this weekend....
Are you ready?


Before she followed him into the house, she peered at his car filled with boxes and clothes on hangers -- the same imagery from the day he had left town when Eden was fifteen years old.  -- pg 129, From the Dead by John Herrick

My opinion of this one kept swaggering back and forth up until the life changing event....curious to see where his revelations lead him....

While she sits in the doorway, I bring Sprits'l out to the garage, where he bounds into the car and puts his paws up on the back window, grinning and yapping an ecstatic neener-neener through the glass at her.  Puzzle is unimpressed with the effort and oddly seems to feel no urge to one-up the Pom behind the window.  They take a short car trip together.  Sprits is joyful; within a couple of blocks, Puzzle's head and ears are down.  Love the car, Sprits'l Morse-taps across the window with his paws.  Puzzle's sullen expression suggests:  Hate the car.  Hate the drive.  Think I hate you too.  -- pg 102, Scent of the Missing by Susannah Charleson
Okay, I know...that was WAY more than two sentences....but I had to share the scene.  Too funny....and true!  Dogs have a language all their own; it's up to the humans to figure out what they are conveying and in this book very important that they do!

She only knew that for whatever reasons, the combination of Burt's kindness, the negative power of her own tongue, and the familiar and pleasing fragrance of food from her heritage had made her irreconcilably sad.  It was much easier to stay crusty -- which kept her vulnerabilities ticked in where they belonged.  -- pg 107, Stray Affections by Charlene Ann Baumbich

Enjoying the story, but still trying to figure out just what the snow globe has to do with the events unfolding.....we shall see.....


Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

*Open to a random page
*Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
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.* 


Until next time....happy reading!
