Teaser Tuesday #153

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser.

 Greg Bennett had always hated Christmas. He'd never believed in "goodwill toward men" and all that other sentimental garbage. Christmas in the city--any city-- was the epitome of commercialism, and San Francisco was no exception. 

I started this one the other night for the #HoHoHoRAT and I'm not so sure about it just yet. I love pretty much everything written by author Debbie Macomber so I'm willing to give it a shot.

Blog Tour: Coop the Great Author Guest Post and Giveaway

Today I'm excited to share with you a fantastic author guest post from the author of Coop the Great by Larry Verstraete! Below you will find the guest post, everything about this great book and a giveaway! 

Why You’ll Love this book

In Coop the Great, Coop is a cynical dachshund who’s been through rounds of adoptions and sees life in very sour terms. He’s an observer of human and animal behavior, always questioning the hows and whys of what he sees, hears, smells and tastes. Above all, he questions his qualifications for greatness especially when he faces the ultimate test.  Mike, his owner, rescued him.  Can he rescue Mike in return?

The story is told by Coop from his limited perspective as a small dog to who is trying to make sense of life.  I think readers will love him.  They’ll love Coop’s wry sense of humour.  They’ll love his fresh take on things we humans often take for granted.  They’ll love Coop’s fighting spirit, too, and when Coop faces challenges and danger, they’ll root for this small dog on his quest for greatness
