A Change of Pace

I have been spending my afternoons reading since being off of work. It is quite nice. I could get used to it.  Currently I am reading something completely different from what I have been reading and it is quite a nice change of pace.

And, it is making me really excited to get to the UK this summer and have my own delicious, greasy fish and chips.

"Mina unfolded the oily paper from around her fish, fingers basking in the release of hot vapour. The batter was warm and brittly dry, but when she broke it open the fish inside was slick and steamy, scalding her fingertips." page 81. Crossed Wires by Rosy Thornton.



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.
