  1. Nice. Love your teaser, the girl has this really independent and sensible personality – and that's just basing on this teaser, I hope it's correct, though, and I really hope this book is really good.

  2. I wonder if she sticks to her guns, throughout the whole book?

    Reading the full synopsis, I doubt it very much.

    Sounds like a great book, my type of read completely.

    Hope you enjoy it and have a 'Very Happy New Year'

  3. Here is my teaser from Nature's Secret Messages: Hidden in Plain Sight by Elaine Wilkes (Page 3):

    "We lie in the lap of immense intelligence." – Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Stop. Look. Listen. My kindergarten teacher taught me that. I remember carefully lining up the tips of my patent-leather shoes exactly at the edge of the curb and stopping–then carefully looking to my right and left, quiet and aware, listening for any clues. Feeling that it was safe to proceed, I'd grasp my classmate's hand, jump off the curb, and happily venture into unknown territories on the other side of the street.

    Now I barely glance from side to side as I hurry on my way.

    What happened? Where did that wide-open feeling of awareness go? In the rush of adulthood, it seems to vanish, but what would happen if we simply stopped, looked and listened…even as busy adults?

    As a learning addict, I've hunted for insights through countless books, seminars, experts, masters and more. Eventually, I realized that my kindergarten teacher had it right from the beginning, long before I started my quest. Who knew that she was so profound?

  4. LOL! Classic. I don't want to ruin our friendship. Code for I think it would be like kissing a stone if we kissed. LOL! Great pick.

  5. Hi! Thanks for stopping by The Enchanted Book and commenting on my teaser. I've never read any Fern Michaels books, despite the fact that she takes up a full bookcase at my local Borders! Maybe it's about time I did.

    Have a great day!

  6. I in addition to my pals happened to be taking note of the best secrets and techniques on your web blog and then then developed a horrible suspicion I never thanked the web site owner for those secrets. My young boys appeared to be absolutely glad to read all of them and already have truly been tapping into them. Many thanks for truly being really thoughtful and then for deciding on certain cool useful guides millions of individuals are really wanting to discover. Our own honest apologies for not expressing appreciation to sooner. 5
