Teaser Tuesday



Good Morning and Happy Tuesday! I've got a short week this week, due to the holiday and some vacation, so every morning has been a good morning.

You know the drill: grab your current read and choose 2 sentences that will entice and intrigue us. (No spoilers, thank you very much.) This week, I'm reading As Meat Loves Salt by Maria McCann. It's a little slow going so far, but a friend with excellent taste in books recommended it, so I am betting it gets better. Here's a little snippet about the youngest brother in the story, Zebedee, which made me chuckle. Very well-put, I think.

"I have seen women, even women of quality, look at him as if they lacked only bread to make a meal of him there and then - and Zeb, not one whit abashed, return the look. I lack his charm."

What has been teasing YOU this week?

aww poor Zebedee, still from the small teaser, I sense he's a good character himself =)

Well, I'm not sure I'd call that charm, exactly. But those teasers are very charming!

Scott said...

That's kinda priceless. Nice.

Margot said...

This was a fun teaser. I'm guessing this is a Romance or at least ChicLit.

Love his name.

Wonderful teaser, I can't believe all the books I've never heard of that show up on Tuesdays!

Great tease! And even if he sounds like something of a ladies' man, it also sounds like he's giving as good as he gets. Hee!

Meanwhile, mine is at Bookishgal

>I'm guessing this is a Romance or at least ChicLit.

Margot, the funny thing about that is that As Meat Loves Salt is set in Royalist England and is the story of Zeb's brother and his obsession with another soldier.
