teasertuesdays31Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Should Be Reading. Here’s how it works:

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!

“Nicholas Blanchard raised his bushy brow and subjected his daughter-in-law to an indignant glare. ‘What on earth can you mean, madam? Do you imply I have some insight into the mental workings of a kitchen maid that you, as mistress of this house lack?”

— The Thief Taker, Janet Gleeson pg. 46 (paper back edition)
