Teaser Tuesdays: Heat Wave

On Teaser Tuesdays readers are asked to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between 7 and 12 lines.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given.

My teaser this week is from Heat Wave, by Richard Castle (well, by someone ghost-writing as Richard Castle), and I’d almost forgotten I’d ordered it until a visiting friend literally tripped over the box from Amazon, as she was leaving my home yesterday.

I have two books ahead of it, but couldn’t resist cracking it open.

So here’s the teaser:

Two hours later, after Rook, and then the news anchor, and then her husband folded, Nikki won yet another hand against the judge. Simpson said he didn’t care, but judging from his expression, she was glad she got the court order out of him before the poker game. “Guess the cards aren’t falling my way tonight for some reason.” She really wanted him to just say “D’oh!”
