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 author whose work I've read once before whose proving thus far to have a real knack for emotionally infused reads without the overheated drama that can plague some stories.  Ready to take a peek?  Your wish is my happily obliged command.

Goodnight, Brian
Steven Manchester

Breakfast was a team effort, with each kid taking his or her assignment very seriously.  Heidi set the table and then fed Brian, while Steph worked the toaster, lathering each burned slice of bread with globs of butter.  Ross worked slowly at the counter, mixing plastic tumblers of flavored milk.  Mama scrambled a frying pan of fluffy eggs and watched as one mess after the other was being made.  It would have been easier for her to do it all herself - but what would that teach? she thought.
-- pg 79 

Like I said....the author has a way of putting you in the scene and allowing you to feel what's happening without things getting over the top.  It's a "when life hands you lemons" sort of story but with a lot more faith injected by Mama (who is actually the grandmother).  You have to love her character.  *chuckle*  Anywho, before I start going too much into my eventual review, suffice it to say that thus far, I am enjoying it.

So...what book are you lost in this week?
Oh come on...just a little tease?



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!

Great passage, as I could actually see the kids making a mess in the kitchen!
