Teaser Tuesday …. 12th June 2012



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of ‘Should Be Reading’.

Anyone can take part, by just doing the following:


1. Grab your current read.

2. Open to a random page.

3. Share a couple of  “teaser” sentences, from somewhere on that page.

4. Be careful not to share “spoiler” sentences.

5. Remember to share the title and author too.

6. Head on over to ‘should be reading’ and leave a link to your post, so that others can share it and you can share other people’s.

It would be great if you then decided to leave a comment for MizB, as we all like to receive them and are interested in sharing your thoughts.


My teaser lines this week are from the book which I am currently reading and thoroughly enjoying. ‘The Devil’s Dime’ is book one in ‘The Samaritan Files’ trilogy, and is classified by its author, Bailey Bristol as Historical Romantic Suspense.



So as not to show any ‘spoilers’, I have not included a synopsis for this book, however, if you want to find out more about it, just click on the book image.

If you don’t really want to read any ‘spoilers’ yourself, then you can ‘tease’ yourself a little more, by reading the first few lines of the story … here.


And then she’d proceeded to tell Addie everything she remembered about the night she’d nearly been killed


“I was only sixteen, you know, and very independent for my years. Mother always told me nothing good would come of it, and she was partially correct.”


This contemporary fiction novel, was gifted as a request for me to read and leave my comments about by its author, Bailey Bristol, and as such was free of charge.

This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog article I may post. Any thoughts or comments will be my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

    • Hi Sandra,

      Luckily, this girl and several others escaped almost certain death, but the way in which they were rescued is what makes the great basis for this story!

      Enough said, or the ‘spoilers’ start to kick in too much!

      I really enjoyed this one and can thoroughly recommend it.

  • You’ve got my attention with your teaser! Kind of reminds me of the Final Destination movies, which I loved! I’ll have to add this to my TBR list!

    • Hi Vicki,

      I have literally just finished reading this book and I have to say that it was a very well constructed plot, with a well thought through and comprehensive back-story.

      I haven’t ever watched the ‘Final Destination’ films, but hubbie has and he thoroughly enjoyed them. I just can’t seem to sit still for that long these days, there is always something more interesting to do, unless I really feel like chilling out.

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving comment, which as always, is very much appreciated.

    • Hi Kriss,

      Of course the synopsis is easy enough to find if anyone wants to know more about the book, but it just seems to me to be a huge ‘spoiler’ if you include it in this particular meme.

      I generally manage to post ‘Teaser Tuesday’ before I get to that particular place in the book, but I missed posting last week, so I have already just finished reading ‘The Devil’s Dime’ and consequently, I unfortunately know a bit too much about this week’s ‘Teaser’ lines.

      Thanks for the visit, I always love to ‘meet’ new people and your comments will always be appreciated.

    • Hi Karen and Gerard,

      Bailey Bristol has researched and written a great back-story which deals with this aspect of the plot and adds nicely to the overall flavour and quality of what is, an excellent historical/suspense/romance story.

      Thanks for the visit, your comments are always welcome and appreciated.

  • Hi Yvonne, great to meet you. I enjoyed the comments you left on my TT earlier today, and totally understand how you feel.

    Great teaser … one that definitely captures one’s attention. I agree with your choice not to include a book synopsis in this meme. I have never included it either and like to keep it short and sweet if possible. I think that’s what a teaser is all about too.

    • Hi Janet,

      I always love to chat with new people that I meet, that is one of the best things about blogging, along with all the great book recommendations, of course.

      Feel free to chip in with any comments you have about anything you see on Fiction Books and I will always reply. Alternatively, if you just feel like a general chat, you can always email me. The time zone difference will be the only barrier to an instant response.

      Because most of my reviews have been undertaken after direct contact with the author, I do generally try to promote a book in as many different categories and memes as possible. So as not to give too much away about the storyline, whilst still ensuring its visibility, I try not to include more than is necessary for the individual post.

      Thanks for stopping by, your comments are always appreciated.

    • Hi Laurel Rain,

      There are plenty of sentences that would have made great ‘teasers’, as the whole book is full of suspense and intrigue, I was spoilt for choice this week.

      This is a great story that I thoroughly enjoyed

    • Hi Cathy,

      Lets just say that this poor girls experience wasn’t pleasant and that she was one of the lucky ones who were rescued just in time!

      A tale of suspense, intrigue and corruption, that makes you just keep on turning the pages.

      Thanks for stopping by, it is great to chat with you and your comments are always appreciated anytime you care to visit.

    • Hi Mary Ann,

      This is just the first installment in a planned ‘Samaritan’ trilogy, featuring our two main protagonists. Whilst ‘The Devil’s Dime’ works great as a stand-alone story, I can’t wait to see where their adventures take them next.

      Thanks for the visit and for leaving comment. Enjoy the rest of your reading week.

    • Hi Yvonne,

      I know that you really enjoy your ‘cozy’ mysteries and this book doesn’t fall into that category, but if you also like suspense with a smattering of romance, then this one would be sure to suit you.

      The storyline is particularly strong and rich in detail and the characterisations strong and believable.

      Thanks for stopping by, it is always good to hear from you.

  • Although I like the sound of this after reading your teaser I am resisting temptation and not adding it to the wishlist. I have so much to read and have even started having to say no to requests for reviews which I do not like doing.

    • Hi Linda,

      Join the club!

      I have so many books to read, both of my own and author review requests, that I really don’t need any more recommendations, although I am still adding them to my list anyway!!

      I am trying to resist the necessity to have to refuse publisher and author review requests, but I don’t know how much longer I can hold out for …. either that or I have to read much more quickly than I am at present, which with pressures at home and with my charity work, is going to be quite difficult.

      ‘The Devil’s Dime’ really was a quality read, so I shall always be more than happy to accept any further review requests from Bailey.

      Thanks for stopping by, it is good to hear from you.

      • I would hate to feel I must read more quickly just to review books, reading is a pleasure for me and it is important it remains as such. I think we just need to be selective in our choices and not feel guilty when we say thanks but no thanks. Easier said than done though. Take Care.
