Teaser Tuesday: Eggs Benedict Arnold by Laura Childs

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Miz B of 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 Tuesday is from Eggs Benedict Arnold by Laura Childs. The book was featured in Show Me 5 Saturday on the 23rd of this month.

While doing a little amateur sleuthing, Suzanne and Toni find themselves trapped in a barn. With a mule! They get the brilliant idea to have the mule kick open the door. Here's the teaser:

"Backing up this mule is like trying to back up a dump truck," complained Toni. This guy is ginormous and I can't seem to find reverse."

Disclosure: A review copy of the book was provided by Laura Childs. Thank you so much, Laura.
