First Paragraph, Tuesday Teaser -- The Good Woman

Every Tuesday, Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea posts the first paragraph of her current read. Anyone can join in. Go to Diane's website for the image and share the first paragraph of the current book you are reading.

After filling out forms for Parent Plus loans for college yesterday, I dived right into some escapist readingThe Good Woman by Jane Porter is playing the role well.
Here's the intro:
He was good.
Meg Roberts stood in the open doors of the Dark Horse Winery's tasting room and watched her boss, Chad Hallahan, co-owner of the Napa winery and VP of sales and marketing, work his magic on the women clustered around him. There were quite a few clustered around, too. But when weren't there?
Also this week is Teaser Tuesdays. Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Open to a random page of your current read h and share a teaser sentence from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers. 
This teaser sounds so familiar for anyone who is a mother. Here's my teaser from page 43:
Even on her rare girls' night out with friends in Santa Rosa, she found herself glancing at her watch and making mental lists of all the things she should be doing instead of sitting with friends chatting over a glass of wine. Laundry. Grocery shopping. Returning calls. Reconciling the checking account. But nowhere on her to-do list was anything to make her laugh or relax or just have fun.

Back to reading and relaxing for a little while longer.

Sounds like quite a lady's man. Or at least one the women really like. ;-) I hope you are enjoying the book!

And, yeah, I can totally relate to the teaser!

I don't read romance, yet the intro leaves me curious. I think I's read a bit more. Enjoy and thanks for joining us today.

Any woman with a full time job could probably relate to the teaser. Not that into romance novels though. Hope you enjoy.
