Teaser Tuesday: Whirlpool by Elizabeth Lowell

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

She settled into her tall work stool to inspect the egg once more. And to wait for an explanation of how the exquisite object d'art had come into Jamie Swann's hands. He was always good at explanations.

Even for her silver-tongued father, this explanation should be a real imperial gem.
This week my teaser comes from Whirlpool by Elizabeth Lowell. This book has been lost on my TBR mountain since I bought it on Oct. 24, 2006. Here is the description from Amazon:
When an exquisitely crafted, authentic imperial Faberge egg mysteriously shows up at Laurel Swann's home studio, she knows it can only be from one person—her father, who has drifted in and out of her life for as long as she can remember. But this time Jamie Swann leaves her something too many people will kill for.

Out of her league and desperate, Laurel is forced to accept help from the very man who is trying to ensnare her father in his own web of double crosses. Cruz Rowan can help her stay alive, but will he do the same for her father?

Elizabeth Lowell, writing as Ann Maxwell, deftly combines the nonstop action of a spy thriller with the heart-pounding excitement of true love and adventure.


  1. Ooooohhhh...this sounds really good. It's been a long time since I read a book by Elizabeth Lowell.

  2. Sounds really good, love the writing in the teaser :)

  3. This comment has been removed by the author.

  4. I tried to comment and my internet got all weird, so I deleted that and am trying again. LOL This sounds like a good suspense novel!

    Here's my Teaser for this week: http://justasecondblog.blogspot.com/2016/05/teaser-tuesdaysfirst-chapter-first_24.html

  5. Oh, you had me at Faberge egg! Thanks for sharing...and here's mine: “BLOOD DEFENSE”

  6. Oh, wow! That prologue is fascinating! I definitely want to know more. Please, keep reading!

  7. Sounds like a great mystery/romance. When I read your Teaser, I wondered if the egg might be Faberge. I'm definitely interested in this story.
    My Tuesday post features HANGTOWN CREEK – A Tale of the California Gold Rush.

  10. It sounds good. I can see why you grabbed it. And my TBR must be as huge as yours. LOL

    My TT from Sister Dear

  11. Sounds interesting! I wonder what sort of excuse would come up...

  12. The author sounds familiar but I am not sure what if anything I have read of hers. I do love the cover and title and would grab it off the library shelf for that reason alone. Add the mystery and danger and I am in. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
