Teaser Tuesday 100511

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!


Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson



Two large glasses of decant claret in the middle of the day were not part of the Major's usual schedule. He had to admit that they imparted a rosy air to a luncheon that would otherwise have been stilted.

pg. 192

This book was quite enjoyable, easy to read and kind of sweet. It was good to be reminded of somethings. This book was also recommended for those who enjoyed The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

There are times a couple of glasses of alcohol can definitely put a rosier sheen to things, LOL. Nice snippet!

I just got given this book for Mothers Day (most precisely I put the book in my son's hands and said this is what I want).

Looking forward to reading it.

I find that pineapple juice with coconut rum works for me :) Not at lunch though - have to drive a school bus in the afternoon!

Sounds like luncheons are also not a usual part of his schedule.

HA! Great quote. I'd say two glasses of mid-day alcohol might make quite the difference! Nice teaser.

hmmmm... now I am hungry. Does the word luncheon ever have that effect on you? I read the most amazing book this week. I had used it for my Teaser Tuesday and loved it so much I decided to post my review today. Feel free to head over to my blog and check it out at http://EmmaMichaels.Blogspot.com and post your teaser in my comments!


Sincerely,
