Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Miz B of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can participate, just do the following:

  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title and the author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.

This week's teaser is from Day Shift by Charlaine Harris. It's a recent release as of May 5, 2015 from Ace. Midnight, Texas has a small population of permanent residents. Olivia is one of the more mysterious ones. No one is quite sure how she makes her living. In this teaser, she is trying to help out Manfred who has been accused of stealing jewelry by looking around the house of the owner.

Both teasers are from 31% into the book:
location 1090:
When she came out of the bathroom, wiser only in a negative way- she was fairly sure nothing was hidden there, and she hadn't learned anything more interesting besides the fact that Rachel Goldthorpe had had a great Mary Kay saleswoman in her neighborhood- Olivia made her goodbyes and renewed her condolences to Annelle Goldthorpe Kling before she went down the carpeted stairs and out to the front courtyard.
...
Again, the teaser is about Olivia.
location 1099:
Her inner alarm system told her there was something to watch out for in this man, and she always listened to that system with great attention.

Day Shift is book 2 in the  Midnight, Texas series. Manfred Bernardo, a sometimes real psychic who works as a telephone and computer psychic has a client die on him while he is conducting a seance in person with her. Her son, Lewis, accuses him of stealing her jewelry, but there seems to be even more than that going on. Manfred turns to Olivia for help. He doesn't know what she does for a living, but somehow he knows that she can make this situation right.
