Intro & Teaser Time


To take part in Tuesday Intros simply share the first paragraph of the first chapter of the book you are reading or are going to read. Tuesday Intros is hosted by Bibliophile By The Sea.

To take part in Teaser Tuesday turn to a random page in the book you are reading, and share two teaser sentences from that page, without sharing spoilers. Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Books And A Beat.


Here's mine:

Tuesday Intro

My love of cosmetics goes back decades and I blame Mammy Keyes - well, like all mammies, the poor woman has (entirely unfairly) got the blame for many of her daughter's woes over the years, so why shouldn't she get the blame for my deep and abiding love of cosmetics? One of my earliest memories is of her sitting at her dressing table, patting some funny liquid in the palm of her hand until eventually emulsified into a white cream, which sh ehten spread over her face. 'Take care of your skin,' she often told me, 'and some day it will take care of you.'

Teaser Tuesday

I was so disconnected from all culinary business that when Siobhan visited with her toddler and needed to open a tin of baby food, I spent many fruitless minutes hunting through drawers and cupboards before I realised that, actually, I didn't have a tin-opener. I mean, who doesn't have a tin-opener?!
