My teaser lines this week, come from a book which is sitting comfortably beside my current book, and is next on the list to be read.
I would have used my current book for this meme, but as I have used that to prepare a post for ‘Book Beginnings’ on Friday, it seemed that if I used it again today, those of you who support both memes, would know just a little too much about the storyline.
I am looking forward to this book, as the author P.D. James is always a joy to read, fantastic, gutsy crime writing at it’s best …. The Amazon link will take you to a full synopsis, if you want to check it out.
‘Death Of An Expert Witness’ by P.D. James
Random page 195
“She looked across at her mother and was suddenly appalled. She had only seen her look like this once before, the night when she had her second miscarriage and had been told by old Dr Greene that there could never now be another baby. Brenda had only been twelve at the time. But her mother’s face, suddenly remembered, had looked exactly as it did now, as if an obliterating hand had passed over it, wiping off brightness, blunting the contours of cheek and brow, dulling the eyes, leaving an amorphous mask of desolation.”
Why Not Take Part In ‘Tuesday Teasers’ – It’s Great Fun And Easy To Do
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of ‘Should Be Reading’.
Anyone can take part, by just doing the following:
1. Grab your current read.
2. Open to a random page.
3. Share two “teaser” sentences, from somewhere on that page.
4. Be careful not to share “spoiler” sentences, that give away too much about the book.
5. Remember to share the title and author too.
6. Head on over to ‘should be reading’ and leave a link to your post, so that others can share it.
Don’t forget that myself, MizB and all the participants of the meme, love to receive your comments and thoughts, so it would be great to hear from you.
Looking forward to sharing all your great teaser lines this week.
