It’s Tuesday – Time For Some Teasers

teasertuesdayTuesday is the day we throw out a few sentences and try to tempt you into reading one of the books we’re reading. This is sponsored by MizB at Should Be Reading. For more teasers click on the image to the right.

There once was a time in Italy when a traitorous poet named Marinetti claimed that pasta “induces scepticism, sloth, and pessimism and . . . its nutritive qualities are deceptive.” In the ensuing pandemonium, one fact rang clear: Italians love their pasta, for all its best qualities as a food.

Those sentences are from Summer By The Sea by Susan Wiggs.

tuesdaywhereareyouI’m using the same book to answer the question: It’s Tuesday, Where are you?

I’m in a seaside town along the coast. There are a lot of very expensive houses here that are used primarily as summer homes. My father has worked as a gardener. As a teenager I fell in love with Alex, the son of one the those houses. He broke it off and broke my heart. I’ve concentrated on making a success of my award-winning restaurant. I love good Italian food. But now I hear Alex is back. Whoa, he just walked in the front door.

    Well, it seems to me that “scepticism, sloth, and pessimism” is a small price to pay for a nice big plate of spaghetti! Nice teasers.

    Pasta and romance – a wonderful combination. I’ve not read anything by Susan Wiggs yet.

    hmmm . . . .

    I wonder what will happen now!

    It is early 1960’s. I am at a peach farm just outside Sylvan, South Carolina, population 3,100. Peach stands and Baptist churches, that sums it up.
