Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Each Tuesday bloggers share a few teaser sentences from their current read.
This week my teaser comes from The Best Man by Kristan Higgins! I’ve been in the mood for a fun chick-lit-y romance and judging from my store’s sales, Kristan Higgins can deliver.
First, a bit about the book:
Faith Holland left her hometown after being jilted at the altar. Now a little older and wiser, she’s ready to return to the Blue Heron Winery, her family’s vineyard, to confront the ghosts of her past, and maybe enjoy a glass of red. After all, there’s some great scenery there .
Like Levi Cooper, the local police chief—and best friend of her former fiancé. There’s a lot about Levi that Faith never noticed, and it’s not just those deep green eyes. The only catch is she’s having a hard time forgetting that he helped ruin her wedding all those years ago. If she can find a minute amidst all her family drama to stop and smell the rosé, she just might find a reason to stay at Blue Heron, and finish that walk down the aisle.
Super cute, right?
Faith has epilepsy and has just had her first seizure in years. Blue, Faith’s therapy dog, got Levi’s attention (Faith just moved in to the apartment across the hall) and he stays with her until it passes. The seizure scene was really uncomfortable and hard for me to read: our dog has them occasionally and once I was the only one home with her when it happened. Nothing can prepare you for that.
However, my teaser comes from the aftermath. It’s a stormy night and Faith’s dad asked Levi to keep an eye on her. While she’s asleep Levi decides to make some dinner and, well, there’s not a whole lot going on in Faith’s fridge:
“So what does yours say about you? You’ve got a half-eaten cake in there, wine, rolls from a can and an unopened jar of artichokes.”
She smiled. “It says I go out a lot, make the occasional bad choice, enjoy life and live spontaneously. Do you want wine or not?”-pg. 213, ARC
