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 teaser is from my recently finished read, The Beckoning Lady by Margery Allingham. Review coming soon!
“The river was deep at that particular point and the stream was a limpid green, sparkling now in the full sun. The body slid in gently, feet first, and the blue cotton dress with the starched petticoats beneath it spread out on the dazzling surface and bore it up, so that like Ophelia she floated for a time, looking strangely comfortable in the glittering bed, her dark head lolling deep in green cushions.”
~ “The Beckoning Lady” by Margery Allingham
A captivating teaser.
Oooh — good one. So pretty, but I suspect foul play.
I’m playing today too, at Beth Fish Reads
Your suspicions are well founded, Beth! 😉
You’re right. The description is pretty.

Petticoats? Shouldn’t she be drowning with the heaviness of her clothes? Great teaser!

The key word here is ‘drowning’! 😉
