Teaser Tuesday


Posting for the new weekly event, “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!
My teaser this week is from Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None - pg 51 -They had left it like that. What else was there to day? Together Armstrong and Lombard had carried the inert body of Anthony Marston to his bedroom and had laid him there covered over with a sheet.
And another from Charles Frazier's Cold Mountain - pg 117 - Inman pulled out his knife and held it point down, his arm relaxed. He said, You come to me looking for vengeance, I won't even waste a cartridge. I'll lay you open right here.

I saw the play for And Then There Were None in London. It was great!

I saw the movie for Cold Mountain. I enjoyed it. Hope the book is even better!

Wonderful teasers! I've been wanting to re-read some Agatha Christie lately, so maybe I'll start with that one.

I just read an Agatha recently and loved it. Your teaser makes me want to read more of her books, thanks!

My TT post is here.

Bluestocking, Wendi, Monica, Joanne, Avisannschild - I am actually reading the Agatha book with my daughter - as she is reading it for school (8th grade) - embarrassed to say that I have never read an Agatha Christie book before - but find that I really like her. It sucked me in!
