Welcome to another opportunity to spark our enthusiasm about the books we’re reading. Join in for Teaser Tuesdays, hosted by Should Be Reading.
Here’s how it works:
- 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.
Today I’m excerpting from Hot Property, by Michele, Samantha & Sabrina Kleier.
In their irresistible novel, Hot Property, Michele, Samantha, and Sabrina Kleier—the stars of HGTV’s hit real estate reality show Selling New York—bring readers past the doormen and into the glitz, gilding, and gossip of Manhattan society.
Elizabeth Chase and her daughters, Kate and Isabel, are the leading ladies of New York City real estate. At Chase Residential, their family-run firm, they spend their days walking the city’s highest society through the most luxurious properties in the most fashionable neighborhoods.
Though the town houses have marble floors and the co-ops park views, life behind closed doors isn’t always as glamorous as it seems. From the enigmatic Countess who just won’t make an offer to the billionaire mogul seeking more than an apartment from his lovely realtor, from backstabbing brokers to cutthroat bidding wars, the Chases’ work keeps them on their toes. But life is about to become even more complicated. Just as Isabel and her boyfriend decide to take the next step, Kate finds herself with a broken heart and an uncertain future. And when Chase Residential’s very existence is threatened by a terrible betrayal, the family comes together to save the business that is at the center of each of their lives.
Hot Property gives readers a peek inside the white-glove-protected doors of New York’s most exclusive enclaves—from the Upper East Side to Tribeca and back up to Central Park—while telling a story of family, loyalty, and all the other things money can’t buy.
Teaser: And then without really knowing she’s doing it, Elizabeth puts the key in the door. Before opening it to Teddy’s perfectly appointed apartment, the gilt frames of the paintings, the porcelain objects, the walls covered in honey-colored rice wallpaper, much of the furniture brightly painted in an offbeat Venetian style, she imagines Teddy himself lying on his living room couch and a matrix of deep red meandering lines staining the couch. p. 63
Wow! Now I want to find out what that’s all about. What about the rest of you? Please stop by and share….
