Teaser Tuesday: Age Before Beauty by Virginia Smith

TEASER TUESDAYS : Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading ~ I always look forward to reading everyone's teasers!

My 2 “Teaser” Sentences for today:


Weird. Why would someone put her full name and title on the front door? Allie had seen people do that in businesses, but never on their homes.

~ p. 90, “Age Before Beauty" by Virginia Smith





From Amazon:
Desperate to stay home with her baby, Allie Harrod launches a new career. Sure, she dropped out of Girl Scouts because she was lousy at cookie sales, but makeup is different, right? She'll do anything to make enough money to cover her share of the household bills, but how can she focus on her business when her list of problems is growing? None of her pre-baby clothes fit, her checking account is dwindling, and her mother-in-law has decided to move in! To top it off, her husband's attractive coworker suddenly needs his help every weekend. Middle sister Joan insists that God has the answers to all her problems, but Allie isn't so sure. Can she really trust him? A lighthearted contemporary tale of family, faith, and fun, Age before Beauty is the second book in the Sister-to-Sister series from well-reviewed author Virginia Smith.

You know, as soon as I read that, I couldn't help but think of the lamb's blood put on the sides of the doors during the first Passover. Yes, I do a weird stream of consciousness!

Meanwhile, mine is here.
