Teaser Tuesdays: Newport

This week my teaser lines come from Jill Morrow's latest novel, Newport (William Morrow, July 2015). This snippet comes from page 82:
Her expression was as guileless as ever, those big blue eyes belying any concept of deviousness. She was adorable, easily the cutest thing he'd seen in quite a while. But so were kittens, and they made him break out in hives.
Haven't actually started this one yet. And I've got to admit, it caught my attention mainly because of the cover. Now I'm just hoping the cover won't be the best part.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Jenn at A Daily Rhythm. 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. Yes, that's a lovely cover. You're teaser is also great. I love the analogy.

  2. Kittens are cute, but they do have claws. :-) I am allergic to cats too, but fortunately don't break out in hives (especially considering I have two!)

    I've been really curious about this book since I first heard about it.

  4. Good teaser! I'd keep reading. Wonder if she is deserving of the comparison.My Teaser

  5. I love the way the author showed the character's ambivalence toward "the cutest thing." Good writing.
