Teaser Tuesday: The Christmas Bowl by Susan May Warren

TEASER TUESDAYS : are hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading ~

My Teaser for today:

I admit it - I longed, prayed, pleaded for rain. Or sleet. Or a blizzard the likes of which the county had never seen. [Marianne is getting ready to be the football team's trout mascot as Bud had a heart-attack and the team needed someone to fill his shoes while he was out]

~ p. 57, “The Great Christmas Bowl" by Susan May Warren

If you like the teaser, be sure to stop by my review here!




About the Book (from the LitFuse Book Tour):
Marianne Wallace is focused on two things this holiday season: planning the greatest family Christmas ever and cheering on her youngest son’s team in their bid for the state championship.

Disaster strikes when the team loses their mascot-the Trout. Is it going too far to ask her to don the costume? So what if her husband has also volunteered her to organize the church Christmas tea.

When football playoffs start ramping up, the Christmas tea starts falling apart. Then, one by one her children tell her they can’t come home for Christmas.

As life starts to unravel, will Marianne remember the true meaning of the holidays?

I always look forward to reading everyone's teasers! ~ Wendi

I think I would be praying for rain and doing a rain dance if I was asked to dress up like a trout. So did she end up doing it and how was it?

Great teaser! I really liked your review of this book, too. I'm adding this to my TBR list for holiday reading ( I like reading books that include Christmas in the story over the holidays).
