First Paragraph/Teaser Tuesday: Set the Night on Fire by Laura Trentham

Every Tuesday Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea posted the first paragraph of a book she is reading or planning to read. In 2018, Vicki from I'd Rather Be at the Beach is taking over this meme.

Here's mine:
Ella Boudreaux drove past Abbot Brothers Garage and Restoration instead of pulling into to parking lot and marching inside like the part owner she was. She wasn't scared exactly. More like slightly nervous about her reception.
Link up here. It is very easy to play along:
  • 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! Everyone loves Teaser Tuesday.
Here's mine:
She looked at her phone, up at the undercarriage, and back again. It wasn't as straightforward as the picture indicated, but eventually, she located what appeared to be the oil pan and plug. She needed to use the boxy end of the wrench to remove the plug.
This week I'm reading a romance that I got from NetGalley. Set the Night on Fire by Laura Trentham is part of the Cottonbloom series. Here is the description from Amazon:
Cottonbloom is the perfect place for starting over, finding your way back home―and falling head over heels. . .

Ella Boudreaux has a lot to prove to her family, friends, and foes―and to herself. So when her marriage ends she decides to invest her energy and money into a place that brings back some of Ella’s happiest memories: the Abbott brothers’ garage. Maybe, if she puts her mind to it, she can teach skeptical, stubborn Mack Abbott how to make the business a true success. Which would be a lot easier if the hunky mechanic didn’t make her motor run quite so fast…and hot.

Mack was furious when his brother, Ford, sold his share of the business. He’s in no rush to team up with a wealthy divorcée who shows up to the garage in stilettos―and the longest, sexiest legs he’s seen in forever. But Ella’s grit and determination won’t quit…and soon Mack can see that she’s been down a few rough roads herself. Neither Mack nor Ella can deny the fierce attraction that’s revving up between them. Could it be that true love has been in the backseat all along…and they’ve finally found the key?
