First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intro is hosted by Diane at Bibliophile By The Sea.

This is how it works: Write down either the first paragraph of a book your are currently reading / intending to read or read in the past and share with us. I do like a good opening!

My current read is Cats, Scarves and Liars by Kathryn White. A review book I received and as I love cats, this just sounds perfect. The book is not too long, 188 pages so makes a perfect quick read.

Opening paragraph: 

It started with a small voice.
Ouch, Peppa wondered as she placed the kettle on the
stove. Just last week she had found the vintage, 1970s style
stovetop kettle at a market and could not resist handing over
the asking price of two dollars (yes, just two dollars, the
stallholder had assured her, a true bargain, never to be seen
again,) and Peppa had happily been using it to boil water
for her morning coffee ever since.
This time, the voice was a little louder.

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should be reading. 
These are the rules  :
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

From Cats, Scarves and Liars by Kathryn White:

‘His name is Charles,’ Peppa said, listening as he
began to purr. ‘Not Sylvester. And he’s a nasty little traitor.’
