Teaser Tuesday: The Only True Genius in the Family

Happy Tuesday everyone!! It's time for another Teaser! You know the rules -

  • Let your current read fall open to a random page
  • Select two sentences to share
  • Name the title of the book so we know where your teasers came from
  • Be careful not to include any spoilers in your teaser!
Today I'm sharing two sentences from THE ONLY TRUE GENIUS IN THE FAMILY by Jennie Nash . . .

"I met you when you had a camera in your hands," Harrison said, "and I've lived with you for twenty-three years, most of which time you've had a camera in your hands. It's ridiculous to suddenly say that you don't have the right DNA to be an artist." ~ page 117

I am really enjoying this book that I've wanted to read ever since it came out last year. It's very interesting to read about different types of photography while readimg a good story.

  16. Reminds me of my neighbor, who's a professional photographer (and an artist with a camera.

    I don't have a place, other than here, to post my teaser, so here goes:

    This is from the beginning (page 2) of a more historical fiction, "Shooting an Albatross" by Steven Lundin.

    "Everyone has secrets, but at 94, the most disturbing secrets have a way of becoming someone’s truth. Before finding Floyd, I wondered if he remembered what he had done. Had he lived with his lies for so long that he no longer knew the truth?"

    This book (truth-based, they call it) is set in 1943, when the US Army "occupies" a golf course in Hollywood and for the only time in history an entire season of golf is canceled. The author has already written the sequel! In it, the action moves ahead two generations. I always like to find out what happens when I close the book, so this is great.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I look forward to hearing from you again soon!
