Teaser Tuesday (February 10)

Kindle,jpg

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!

My teaser this week is from Lay Me Down by Nicci Cloke

Lay Me Down

Blurb

What if the past won’t let you go?
London: 31st December, midnight. For Elsa and Jack, a stolen kiss becomes a shot at real happiness. Eight months later, they board a plane to begin a new life in San Francisco, where Jack has found his dream job working on the Golden Gate Bridge.
But this is not your average boy-meets-girl love story, for Jack’s new job comes with an extraordinary obligation. No one told him about the Jumpers – the men and women who try to leap from the bridge to their deaths every year. One in particular begins to haunt Jack, bringing back memories he thought safely buried. As he becomes more and more preoccupied, and Elsa, alone in a new city, becomes increasingly isolated, both retreat into their pasts, back down the paths that led them to that New Year’s Eve. Amazon

My Teaser

There is a picture that exists that he will always remember. In years to come, he will trace the faces with a fingertip; a couple and their little boy, behind them a bridge. His father is saying something, the camera – operated by an aunt – flashing too soon, and they are laughing. His mother belly huge and taut, holds his hand as she laughs, looking down at his small, tanned face.

  1. This sounds like an intense read to me but similarly to Suzie I am definitely fascinated! The teaser sounds so nostalgic, which just makes me fear what our protagonist has in his past! I hope you enjoy this one! Thanks for sharing 🙂 I hope you have a great week!

  2. Oh, I definitely want to know more! I love books set in SF…and the Golden Gate Bridge is such a beautiful, yet sometimes sad, iconic image. Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.

  3. I don’t think I’ve heard of this book, but it does sound good. I like the writing in the intro. And the blurb won me over. San Francisco is one of my favorite cities, one I visited often when I lived in that part of the state. The subject matter interests me as well. Thanks for sharing. Adding this one to my wish list.
