Teaser Tuesdays: Hawaii

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading.

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!

Hawaii by James A. Michener p. 38

"Teroro listened to the complaints and then said, 'I have been willing to run the risk of getting you here, because it doesn't matter whether there's a spy among us or not.' He stared at each of his men and continued: 'If one of you is a spy, inform the High Priest, because that will scare him from carrying out what I think is his plan.'"

When I was in St. Croix, I saw a sailboat named Teroro! He is the brother of the king of Bora Bora and the priests have come up with a new god, Oro, who demands a lot of human sacrifices, which is going to quickly decimate the population of the small island, and diminish the power of the king in favor of the priests. That's not good for the king.

That's an oldie, but a goodie! I think my favorite Michener is The Source.

My TT this week is from one of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels: http://wp.me/pZnGI-js

I read almost all of Michener's books many years ago (including Hawaii) and still have them on my shelves. Time for a reread!
My Tuesday post features ALL THAT GLITTERS.

This was his book I read. I remember being intimidated by how long it was. LOL
