Teaser Tuesday (24 Jan)

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!

Today’s Teaser taken from:
 I’d Know You Anywhere by Laura Lippman

“I’m sure this is a shock, although that’s not my intention, to shock you.  Up until a few weeks ago, I never thought I would have any communication with you at all and accepted that as fair. That’s how it’s been for more than twenty years now.  But it’s hard to ignore signs when they are right there in front of your face, and there was your photo in Washingtonian magazine, not the usual thing I read, but you’d be surprised by my choice of reading material these days.  Of course, you are older, a woman now.  You’ve been a woman for a while, obviously.  Still, I’d know you anywhere.”

Bonus Teaser taken from:
Family History by Dani Shapiro

“I start to move toward Kate, but she shakes her head, her eyes narrow in warning, and I stop.  She turns her back, squaring her little shoulders resolutely away from me.  The movie ends there.  I turned off the camera and stood alone in a crowd of parents, my arms dangling uselessly by my sides.”
