Teaser Tuesdays: The Radioactive Lady

This week, my teaser lines come from Elizabeth Stuckey-French's novel, The Revenge of the Radioactive Lady. I've just started this one and don't really know anything about the book or its author; I confess I chose it just because of the wonderful title. This bit comes from page 151:
Vic...enjoyed his afternoon paper route because he loved studying other people's neat little homes; smelling the dryer lint from their laundry rooms; imagining the quiet, mundane lives that were lived within. He bet nobody in those houses accidentally fried eggs in a frying pan lined with motor oil as his mother once did after his father had used the pan to catch oil draining from the station wagon.
Oops! Oh, well, at least that should keep 'em all running smoothly until their next tune-up!

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by mizB at Should Be Reading. If you'd like to read more teasers, or take part yourself, just head on over to her blog.

And please feel free to leave me a link to your Teaser Tuesday post in your comment here.


  1. Imagine what those eggs tasted like... BLECH!


  2. The quote....the title...the cover picture (love how she's "hiding" that dagger--it's definitely no ordinary kitchen knife--behind her back). Love it. Off to add one more to the TBR pile.....

  7. I am trying very hard not to imagine what those eggs would've tasted like. :O

  8. Great teaser! I sure wouldn't want any of those eggs! The book sound interesting.

  9. Oh, you're right...it's a great title, and that is a wonderful teaser. It captures sensory moments so well....


  10. I would have picked this one for the title too! And the fun cover. Not for the icky fried eggs though...
