Teaser Tuesday: A Fine Imitation

This week my teaser lines come from A Fine Imitation, a new historical novel by Amber Brock (Crown, May 2016). This quote is from Chapter 13 (p.87):
She looked out the window, hoping for some sign of an unexpected hurricane or a well-timed war that would make the roads unusable. But these thoughts came with a stab of guilt. She shouldn't wish for devastation to serve her own ends, especially not with the idea of preventing her own mother from coming to visit.
Sounds like dear old Mum might not be such a welcome companion, hmmm?

I'm enjoying this one much more than I expected to. Midway through and hoping it doesn't disappoint in the second half.

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Jenn at Books and a Beat. 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. I've been ogling that cover, and now I am really curious. It sounds as though her mother might be more of a problem than most. Thanks for sharing...and here's mine: “CLOUDS IN MY COFFEE”

  2. It all works for me. The teaser, the title the cover....!!

Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
