Teaser Tuesdays

The rules are,

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 lines 7 and 12.
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!
Please avoid spoilers!

Here is my teaser,
'A few steps away, an apartment building had been finished inside the ruins of what looked like an ancient theater, with modern brick and glass windows above rows of arches, the 'lawn' a series of pieces of fallen marble and stone, some of it intricately carved, just lying around like so. A small sign in multiple languages warned passersby about taking a souvenir ruin or two.'
from 'A Friday Night Knitting Club novel Knit Two', by Kate Jacobs. page 220.

Can you guess which country this describes?

Well, I know where this is because I read the book last week! Hope you enjoy it.

Mary ---I thought you might know, it was your review that tempted me to pick the book up from the library!

The first place that I could think of was Italy, but I'm not too sure.

Great teaser by the way. I've been wanting to pick up the Knit books by Kate for awhile now, but haven't had the chance. I hope you enjoy A Friday Night Knitting Club.

Great teaser! I have a couple of more books to read, then I'm on to this one!

Jenny Girl said...

Brilliant teaser!
When you say ruins, I think of Italy or the British Isles for some reason. I never read the first one unfortuantely. It's languishing in my TBR!

Ladytink_534 said...

Sounds like Italy to me! I really ought to get around to reading these books... Great teaser!

The Bumbles said...

I'll guess Greece.

Charli and me said...

I also think of Italy. The book sounds interesting. I have to pick that one up too.

me said...

No way - that teaser sounds great. I knit and read, why haven't I heard of this series before?

zetor said...

Thanks for all your comments, the country was Italy, although I can see how it could be mistaken as Greece(The Bumbles) . I like reading books where I am transported to a beautiful country. 0ne day I will visit Italy!

Jenny Girl said...

Italy is my next dream vacation.

Stop by when you have a chance, I gave you an award :)
Have a great!
