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!

This week's Teaser is from Age Before Beauty again as I had this book in front of me, and I don't feel like moving (got the flu). :) I've finished this great book and posted my review here.

My 2 “Teaser” Sentences for today (ok - 4 sentences!):


Turn! Allie heard the command and froze for half a second. The entire class turned to the left in unison, never missing a beat with their toe tapping and elbow bending. Allie quickly aligned herself and caught up. How did they know which way to turn?

~ p. 210, “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.

Sorry you're feeling under the weather, Wendi!

That teaser is from one of my favorite scenes - when Allie takes an aerobics class. Ever felt like an elephant in a tutu? I have, and that's where the scene came from. Good choice!

Feel better. Great teaser and good book.

A cyber cuppa with friends makes anyone feel better. This was a great teaser. I would read the book from that alone. Weird, because the title doesn't do it for me at all.

My first post was faulty. Here is mine

Hope you feel better soon, Wendi--flu is NO fun.
I loved your teaser--it describes me when it comes to anything requiring gross motor skills and coordination!

Thanks for sharing this teaser! I could really use a book like this now, I've been reading too many heavy and serious books. =(
