Where Are You? / Teaser Tuesday (May 5)


I'm Violet. I live in the Los Angeles area with my music producer husband, David, and young daughter, Dot. I have a nanny and a gardener and a big house. I'm smart and educated and rich. Who wouldn't want to be me? My sister-in-law, Sally, in fact is determined to have my life. She picks the men she dates with just that goal in mind. Funny thing is, I'm not sure I'm happy.

For more Where Are You? answers, visit Raidergirl3 at An Adventure in Reading.


MizB at Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. Here's how it works: Grab your current read; let the book fall open to a random page; and share 2 “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. For more teasers, click on through to MizB's blog.


There was no discernible edge to her voice. This was one of Violet's most bedeviling tactics, acting as if she was being completely reasonable and it was David who was hell-bent on ruining a perfectly fine morning. (p. 6)

I love your description for the "where are you" meme! Sometimes having it all isn't all it's cracked up to be!

Your tease got me to look more into this book and I added it to my TBR.

You can read about it at my Friday Finds post here and link up to see all the other great Friday Finds meme posts, if you don't already.
