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!

This week I tease from Messenger of Truth by Jacqueline Winspear.

“Driving at what amounted to breakneck speed, considering that she could barely see three feet beyond the front of the motor car, Maisie was so intent upon getting to Billy’s house that she took chances she would never otherwise have taken. Barely missing a horse and cart, the carriage lanterns dim as the mad made his way home, she turned into Billy’s street with a screech that must have given half the neighborhood cause to believe the police themselves had come in search of criminals.”

If your participating in the I’m Mad for Maisie Read-Along head on over to Book Club Girl‘s website on Monday February 28th to join in the discussion.

So what are you teasing us with this week?
