Teaser Tuesday 27

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Should Be Reading.

The idea is to:
Grab the book you are currently reading.
Open it up to a random page.
Share two teaser sentences.
Give the name and author of said book.
And remember No Spoilers!

I've already read four netgalley books so far this month and the fifth is Good Girls Don't by Victoria Dahl. Love Victoria Dahl's books. I've only just started this one so my teaser is from the first page.

Tessa Donovan stared across the parking lot of Donovan Brothers Brewery, mesmerized by the flashes and swirls of blue and red across the gray brick of the building. She couldn't help but stare. The police lights were so at odds with the birdsong and pale sunlight of the early-morning hour.

1% Location 30-34.

With her long ponytail and sparkling green eyes, Tessa Donovan looks more like the girl next door than a businesswoman – or a heartbreaker. Which may explain why Detective Luke Asher barely notices her when he arrives to investigate a break-in at her family’s brewery. He’s got his own problems – starting with the fact that his partner Simone is pregnant and everyone thinks he's the father. The last thing he needs is a nice girl like Tessa getting under his skin.

Tessa has her hands full, too. Her brother’s playboy ways may be threatening the business, and the tensions could tear her tight-knit family apart. In fact, the only thing that could unite the Donovan boys is seeing a man come after their “baby” sister. Especially a man like Luke Asher. But Tessa sees past the rumors to the man beneath.

Don't know how many netgalley books I am actually going to get through this week as I plan to re-watch all seven Harry Potter movies in preparation for Sunday (which is when I am going to see the final movie) and I haven't even started yet!

Also be sure to enter my six month blogoversary giveaway to win the book of your choice from The Book Depository. All the info here.
