Yikes! I am TAGGED!

Yikes! Linda L. Richards has tagged me!

The deal, she says, is that those tagged must:

1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged YOU.

So... here goes:

Lucky for me, Elizabeth George's "Careless in Red" just arrived and was to the right of my desk. The sixth through eighth sentences are part of a dialogue:

"You and I both know she's lying through those pretty white teeth of hers. Your job is to find out why."
"You can't possibly require me–"

Wow, ok, I'm hooked!

And I tag Caroline Leavitt, Wendy R, Karen E. Olson, Victoria Zackheim, and Deb Grabien. You're it, gals! And if anyone else feels like grabbing a book and chiming in, please do!

Alas, darlin', you're out of luck on this one.

The nearest book to me is a Far Side collection....

She changed. Every morning she was on the s=construction site, in theory to keep an eye on the work. She would touch the earth with her hands, breathe it in from her open palms; she wandered among the builders, giving her opinion on every detail.
