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!

Today’s tease comes from the newest Maisie Dobbs novel, Elegy for Eddie by Jacqueline Winspear.


“Maisie smiled. She remembered seeing a film at the picture house. It was an American western, and there was a scene where two cowboys faced off against each other, both men with their hands wide by their hips, ready to be the first to draw his gun and fire. Should she go full-bore, or attempt to blow off pieces of smugness one by one?”

Hurray, Maisie’s back and she’s really at her best. And best of all she goes on sale today so, head on over to your local bookstore and pick her up. So, what are you reading to tease us with?

The quote was taken from an Early Review Copy, the final copy may very. Thanks for Edelweiss and Harper for my review copy.
