Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• 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!
This week’s Teaser passages come from When Doves Fly by Lauren Gregory. Set in Colorado in the 1870s it describes the perils of life for women trying to survive near the Rocky Mountains at that time.

“Lord, but ya are pretty when you smile,” he sighed, a wistful exhale. Her heart responded with a stutter but she caught herself and shot him a disapproving look.
I will be reviewing this novel later this week.
