Teaser Tuesday! February 28, 2012

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • 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!

My teaser:

Had CC de Poitiers known she was going to be murdered she might have bought her husband, Richard, a Christmas gift.  She might even have gone to her daughter’s end of term pageant at Miss Edward’s School for Girls, or ‘girths’ as CC liked to tease her expansive daughter.  Had CC de Poitiers known the end was near she might have been at work instead of in the cheapest room the Ritz in Montreal had to offer.

~ “A Fatal Grace” by Louise Penny, p. 1

Isn’t that a great opening paragraph!  I just love Louise Penny :)

    That’s the thing about being murdered. You usually don’t know when it’s going to happen to you.

      Yes, it’s very rare that you do know! I love the way Louise Penny phrases things like this :)

    I guess if we all knew the time and circumstances of our deaths, we’d plan accordingly! I love your teaser, and I’m definitely going to read this book.

      Wouldn’t we!? It would be so different if it were all that way. Although CC is pretty awful so far, I’m not sure if she’d be different if she knew she only had a few days left.

    I love Louise Penny, and her Inspector Gamache series is one of my favourites.
    Enjoy!

    Sounds like she was found in a compromising position.

    Great teaser. Please check out my teaser.

      She definitely was, although to a very large extent she created the situation for herself, so it’s hard to be sympathetic!
