Teaser Tuesdays & It’s Tuesday, Where Are You? – July 28, 2009


Sacred Hearts by Sarah Dunant

As she opens the door into the dispensary the sight that greets Madonna Chiara makes her forget momentarily that she has a duty to note at once the transgressions of any of her flock. In the middle of the room the novice Serafina is kneeling by the body of the dispensary mistress, who is slumped on the floor, blood dripping from her mouth.

To the Nines by Janet Evanovich

An attendant in rubber gloves extracted all the items from my tote. Two pairs of bikini panties, a pair of jeans, two little white T-shirts, white socks, sneakers, a travel box of tampons (just in case), hair spray, roller brush, assorted cosmetics.

I’m in a convent in Ferrarra, Italy, trying to calm the spirits of a new novice, who does not want to be here. (Sacred Hearts)

I’m also in Trenton, New Jersey, looking for a man who is missing on an immigration bond. (To the Nines)

And, when I’ve got my MP3 player going, I’m in Wilmington, North Carolina, where I have just discovered that my boyfriend followed me back in time. (Drums of Autumn, Diana Gabaldon – I finally got the missing disc!)

    Yaay! Finally the missing disc arrives! I have yet to embark on the next book…I’m slightly ashamed to say that I’m dreading it! I’ve heard it isn’t all the good (is that true) and is almost 50 discs long. I can’t stand it. Still, the challenge ends in September, and I have two mroe books, so I know I need to get in gear. *Sigh*

      Sandy – do you mean The Fiery Cross? It’s been so long since I read it – but I don’t remember thinking it wasn’t good. I don’t really remember what it was about, though, either!

  2. I like whats in that tote back!

    You are having a very diverse week, aren’t you. You are hopping all over the place. I’m also in Trenton (the new 15). Keep going with your Stephanie Plum challenge and you’ll still be having fun.
