Teaser Tuesdays 4/12/11

Hosted by Shoud Be Reading, Teaser Tuesdays are a weekly bookish meme.  Choose any page at random and select two sentences from somewhere on that page.  Be careful not to include spoilers.  Include the title of the book and the author's name.  I like to add the page number too.  Post the teaser on your blog and link up with Should Be Reading.  It's a great chance to get a glimpse into other books and perhaps add to your TBR/wish list.

"And now, sitting there with the unmistakable odor of burnt cloth in my mind at least, I realized I'd been very stupid indeed.  Not for not setting fire to the melange in the fireplace, though that was stupid too, but for mentioning Luton and the check."  ~ page 109, The Town Cried Murder by Leslie Ford.  This book was copyrighted 1938 and is one of my reads towards the Vintage Mystery Challenge.

"A pair of strong hands gently lifted her aching body off the wet ground.  They held her and snuggled her against a warm, muscular chest.  She could hear whispers of comfort, as she was carried into an old house.  She let her mind slip away into unconsciousness, knowing someone was there and they were going to help her." ~ page 10, Quicksilver by Joy Spraycar.  I have been looking forward to reading this book for some time now and 10 pages in, it appears very promising.  The cover is incredible with hidden images.  The artist uses colour to create mood and portrays well the plot within.  Created by Tescanu Elena, it is one of the nicest covers I have seen.  My daughter likes this book so much that I promised to give it to her once I have read it and prepared a review.  I will likely get her to do a guest post for this book too. To view the cover, see my post Do You Judge a Book By Its Cover?.  How's that for a tease within a tease? ;0

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!  Be sure to visit Should Be Reading too.  Enjoy your reads!
