Teaser Tuesday (16)


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
A scrub oak grew up a few feet from Dad's marker. I sat next to it and leaned back, staring west across the river.  For the first time in my life, I owned, outright, a piece of land. It had no oil, no cows and no wife to share it with.
From Thunder and Rain by Charles Martin

This is a great book and while this seems a little down at the moment, I have a feeling things will be looking up.  The book has really drawn me in from the first page.  Ty is such a great main character, flawed, but a very good guy who just wants to do his best for people.  My review and a giveaway will be coming later today.

About Thunder and Rain
Third generation Texas Ranger Tyler Steele is the last of a dying breed-- a modern day cowboy hero living in a world that doesn't quite understand his powerful sense of right and wrong and instinct to defend those who can't defend themselves. Despite his strong moral compass, Ty has trouble seeing his greatest weakness. His hard outer shell, the one essential to his work, made him incapable of forging the emotional connection his wife Andie so desperately needed.

Now retired, rasing their son Brodie on his own, and at risk of losing his ranch, Ty does not know how to rebuild from the rubble of his life. The answer comes in the form of Samantha and her daughter Hope, on the run from a seemingly inescapable situation. They are in danger, desperate, and alone. Though they are strangers, Ty knows he can help-- protecting the innocent is what he does best. As his relationship with Sam and Hope unfolds, Ty realizes he must confront his true weaknesses if he wants to become the man he needs to be

aww, I feel for the person in the teaser... yay for land, then sad that there's no one to share it with. This sounds like a good book though, and I really do like the teaser :) Happy reading, Book Savvy Babe’s TT

That teaser is incredibly sad and lonesome though.
