Teaser Tuesday



It's Tuesday . . . Where are you? is hosted by Raidergirl13 . This week I am in England at a country manor estate for a murder mystery weekend. I am just getting to know all the other participants during a preprandial cocktail. Or two!


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme graciously hosted by Should be Reading and asks you to :

1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3. Share 2 "teaser"sentences also citing the title of the book and the author and in that way people can have great recommendations if they like the "teaser.
4. Please avoid spoilers!

This week's teaser is taken from Murder at Madingley Grange by Caroline Graham. Once again, I am playing the rebel and giving more than 2 sentences just for clarity.

"Who's ....Who's Maud..." Derek spluttered and stared, stupified with astonishment."Who's Maud Silver? You know who Miss Marple is, I suppose?" A general murmur of agreement. " And Hercule Poirot?" Yes. Solid there as well.

"They're on television, you see," explained Rosemary.

"But don't you read the books?" cried Derek. "My God, I thought you'd all be aficionados."

" We had one of them," admitted Fred. " But the wheel came off."
