I loved Margareta Osborn’s last rural romance Mountain Ash. It was so refreshing and funny … and was one of my favourite romance reads of 2014. I started Rose River while sitting in a waiting room earlier today and found myself red-faced after laughing aloud a couple of times. The chemistry builds up right from the start as you’ll see by the teaser below (teasing in a number of ways).
Here’s the teaser:
She sucked in a breath, threw back her shoulders and tried to stand tall, which was a bit hard in flat shoes. ‘I’ll have you know I went to one of the finest private schools, best university, and, yes, my parents did teach me manners, unlike yours. Now give me my G-string.’
Here’s the blurb:
Take one city girl – and drop her into the back of beyond …
Housesitting in rural Burdekin’s Gap, high up in the East Gippsland mountains, is not an obvious career move for a PR executive like Jaime Hanrahan. But, hey, retrenchment is a kicker. Plus she’s determined not to spend Christmas in Melbourne with her friends, who still have company cars and six-figure salaries, or with her mother, Blanche, who has remarried too soon after her father’s death. However, it turns out that Burdekin’s Gap is a little more remote than Jaime had anticipated, the house is in the middle of a cattle station, and the handsome manager, Stirling McEvoy, doesn’t appreciate a new farmhand in Jimmy Choos and Sass & Bide cut-offs.
Soon Jaime is fending off stampeding cows, town ladies wielding clipboards, sheep who think they are goats, nude sportsmen and one very neurotic cat. So why does she feel like she’s falling in love . . . with the life, with the breathtaking landscape, and with one infuriating cowboy …?
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of A Daily Rhythm. 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 TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Sounds interesting. Never read this author’s work before. Will check this one out.
Here is my teaser
Not my usual genre but I like the premise.
LOL I see what you mean about laughing! Sounds fun. Thanks for sharing this new author.
My TT – http://fuonlyknew.com/2015/03/17/teaser-tuesdays-106-confess-by-colleen-hoover/
It is fun – especially at the start. Then the conflict comes in and there’s the drama and tears!
Love the teaser – sounds like an entertaining read!
Mine today is from Canary by Duane Swierczynsk
It really is good fun. I’m enjoying it. I’ll have it finished tonight.
Oh my – I almost sputtered my coffee. 😉 I will definitely pick this one up.
Haha, can just imagine that! I read that part while in a hospital waiting room and laughed out loud. #embarrassing
Haha! Romance is not really my genre but that little outburst followed by “now give me my G-string.” did make me chuckle.
I’d love if you’d pop by Dewey Girl and give my TT a read: http://deweygirl.co.uk/2015/03/teaser-tuesday-stardust/
Me too. It wasn’t at all expected and I loved it.
That was a funny teaser…that last bit was totally unexpected. Thanks for sharing, and here’s mine: “GOLDBERG VARIATIONS”
It was! I laughed out loud.
I like the teaser and blurb! My Teaser Tuesday is here
Thanks Anya. I’ll be checking yours out shortly.
