Teaser Tuesday for 18 August: Baking Cakes in Kigali

teaser-tuesdayIt’s that time of week again for Should Be Reading’s fun meme Teaser Tuesdays.

So how does this work:

  • Grab your current book
  • 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!

Baking CakesToday’s teaser comes from Baking Cakes in Kigali by Gaile Parkin which hits the shelves today.
A loud chorus of voices from Ken’s apartment – get your money for nothing – interrupted this line of thought, and she became aware that her face was beginning to radiate heat. Her body – defended by two blankets against the cold night-time air of Kigali’s high altitude – maintained a comfortable temperature, while her head and neck, propped up on a pillow against the bedroom wall, were now beginning to perspire.” (Pg. 35)
