Teaser Tuesday – The Man with a Load of Mischief

   Posted by: lizjohnson   in Teaser Tuesdays

teaser_tuesdays1MizB of Should Be Reading hosts the Teaser Tuesdays weekly event

Here are the rules:
* Grab your current read
* Let the book fall open to a random page
* Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12
*You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
* Please avoid spoilers!

This week’s teaser is:
“Outside the Jack and Hammer, a dog growled. Inside, his view of the High Street obstructed by the window at his shoulder, Melrose Plant sat in the curve of the bay drinking Old Peculier and reading Rimbaud.”
pg. 1  – The Man with a Load of Mischief by Martha Grimes

– In honor of the recent release of Martha Grimes’ newest book, featuring Richard Jury, I thought I’d offer you the first 2 sentences of her first Richard Jury book. Jess Barnes and my other good friend Rachel love these books, and I can’t wait to dive in and read them too. Apparently Melrose Plant is Jess’s literarly soulmate. I hope to find my own literary soul mate some day. Until then … :)

Yay! Melrose gets a shout-out on your blog! He is TOTALLY my Literary Soulmate. I’ve been in love with him since I was thirteen years old, and don’t plan on ever stopping. So there, real life!
