Teaser Tuesdays {4-14-09}

It's Tuesday... Where are you?

I'm somewhere in the countryside of England. I'm at the home of Gregory Matthews. He is unmarried, but his house is not empty. His unmarried sister Harriet, his widowed sister-in-law Zoe and her 2 (grown) children also live in the house, called The Poplars. After Mr. Matthews is found dead by Beecher, the butler, chaos ensues.



Teaser Tuesdays

  • Grab your current read
  • Let the book fall open to a random page
  • Share with us two (2) "teaser" sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you're getting your "teaser" from ... that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given!
  • Please avoid SPOILERS.
This week's Teaser comes from BEHOLD, HERE'S POISON by Georgette Heyer. These sentences come from page 39.
In consequence to the gloom reigning over the library and the dining-room the family had been forced to sit in the drawing-room, a large and cheerless apartment at the back of the house, elegantly but uncomfortably furnished in the style of Louis XV. Mrs Lupton was discussing with her sister what had best be done with Gregory Matthews' clothing, and Janet, a pale, earnest-looking young woman of five-and-twenty, was trying to be bright and intelligent over her cousin Guy's sketch of the overmantel for the house in Dorking.

Great teaser - I love Heyer's books, but have read mostly her romances, not the mysteries. . . might need to give this one a try. I've got a REALLY old copy around here somewhere.

Good teaser! I've been hearing a lot about Georgette Heyer lately and really should look for her next time I'm at the library.
