Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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 for today, from THE MURDER AT THE VICARAGE, by Agatha Christie, book 1 in the Miss Marple series.

‘Rememember they had a quarrel,’ I said.
‘About Lettice and her bathing dress.’
(18%, ebook edition)


‘Anyone who murdered Colonel Protheroe,’ declared the parson, brandishing a carving knife above a joint of roast beef, ‘would be doing the world at large a service!’

It was a careless remark for a man of the cloth. And one which was to come back and haunt the clergyman just a few hours later. From seven potential murderers, Miss Marple must seek out the suspect who has both motive and opportunity.

This is a recent acquisition, as I’ve been hearing about Agatha Christie my whole life but had never actually got round to reading any of her work. I’m sure it won’t come as a surprise to anyone that I’m enjoying it greatly, mostly because Miss Marple doesn’t give a damn what anyone thinks of her. Great fun!
