Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.
My teaser for today:
"He showed up on my doorstep last Monday evening, a ginger tom with a limp and a very pitiful mew. A bowl of cream miraculously cured the limp, and after a night on the kitchen hearth, the mew was replace by a snarl that caused the milkman to shatter a fresh pint all over my kitchen floor. I strongly suspect premeditation, since the cat promptly lapped it up."
p. 135, "Aunt Dimity's Death" by Nancy Atherton
This is the first novel in a series I just discovered and am now completely hooked on! It's a cozy mystery with a tad bit of paranormal and romance thrown in for good measure. And yes, I cheated just a little and included a third line because the teaser makes more sense with it! The cat is a very minor character in the book, but I don't hold that against it. I'm a sucker for a book that will make me chuckle out loud, and this one did...more than once.
