Teaser Tuesday- A Long Way from Chicago

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!


    "Mrs. Dowdel, you falsified those so-called Lincoln items. They're bogus. I could have the law on you."
    "That's right." Grandma gazed over him at the wide-mouthed bass. "The banker throws the poor old widder in the pokey. That'll look real good for your business."


  1. I've heard of this author but haven't had a chance to read anything. Sounds good though!

  2. I have seen TEASER TUESDAYS but this is the first time I understood what it was about by reading what you put in your post...Duh! Guess I wasn't concentrating before or else, you simplified it so it was easy to enjoy! Thanks for the post!

  3. I haven't read much of Richard Peck, but I loved Ghosts I Have Been and The Ghost Belonged To Me.

    Excellent teaser, though I'm not sure how a wide-mouthed bass fell into the picture! :)

  4. I'm guessing widder is widow? I got caught up in the image of the bass and had to read it a few times!

  5. Naida: Thanks!

    Samantha: This was my first book by him but he's really good :)

    Bingo: Hope you decide to participate!

    The Epic Rat: I plan on reading one of those as it was made into a Disney movie. Oh, guess I should explain that they're sitting in the bank manager's office and Grandma's trying to get her friend's house back.

    Fizzy: Yes it is. She's an elderly lady (who is a spitfire) pretty much blackmailing the bank manager in whose office she is sitting.

  6. Sounds good... I haven't read anything by this author.


Hope you enjoyed my musings and I would love to hear what you think about them!
