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!
‘Rememember they had a quarrel,’ I said.
‘About Lettice and her bathing dress.’

‘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!
