Teaser Tuesday

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:
"Meanwhile, Cathy had switched on the kettle, asked June to help get the ironing board and iron up in the spare room, got the boys to put the two Persian cats into a place with a litter tray and a bowl of food, a place from which they could not emerge and eat the trifle or shed hairs on the salmon.  By the time the kettle had boiled Cathy had persuaded Molly that the main thing was for her to go upstairs and rest with her feet slightly raised."

p. 186, "Scarlet Feather" by Maeve Binchy

I am currently re-reading this book by Maeve Binchy.  This is the first book I ever read by her, many years ago. Her books are typically set in Ireland and many of the books have recurring characters.  I absolutely love her character development.  Her books tend to be feel good, nice, easy reads.  It's been so long since I read this book that I don't remember the details.  I'm enjoying it as much this time around as I did the first.


  1. My mom used to like this author but I've never given her books a try. My teaser this week comes from The Witch with No Name by Kim Harrison. Happy reading!

  2. I haven't tried these books yet, and I'm not sure if they would be my cup of tea. I hope you enjoy them!

    Here's my teaser.

  3. Now I want to reread it, too! I love how this author made a book so cozy, even when there is mystery, rivalry, etc., going on. Thanks for sharing. Here's mine: “LIES & OTHER ACTS OF LOVE”

  4. I read this one quite a few years ago and remember enjoying it. Maybe it's time for a re-read.
    My Tuesday post features STELLA BAIN.

    1. I like that when it's been a long time since I read a book, I often can't remember the specifics. So I end up enjoying it just as much if not more the next time around!

  5. I love her books and have reread a few.

  6. Oh, I remember that I loved this book! Now I am going to have to reread it too! Here is my teaser: http://booklovingmommy.blogspot.com/2016/04/teaser-tuesday-dont-you-cry-by-mary.html

  7. I'm wondering how I missed this author. I'll be checking out her books.

    Here's My TT
