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! Post it on your own blog, if you have one, and put a link in a comment to today's Teaser Tuesday on the ShouldBeReading site.




Beaton - Death of a VillageMy Teaser

I just started reading a mystery set in the Scottish Highlands. It's called Death of a Village, and it's by M.C. Beaton.

I don't read a lot of mysteries, and I haven't decided yet if I like this book. But I do enjoy reading the descriptions of the highlands and its villages, and of the eccentric characters who inhabit them. Here is my teaser. It's from page 59:


"Hamish's first thought when he picked up Elspeth the next day was that at least she had made the effort to dress in a more conventional manner. He had been afraid that she might have decided to turn up for church in something like hot pants."
