Indelible

I love Agatha Christie, so I was more than excited when my local librarian suggested this title to me. Today’s Teaser Tuesday sentences come from Peter Helton’s novel Indelible. An Agatha Christie-like mystery with a bit of Monty Python humor to it. When laid-back painter and private detective Chris Honeysett accepts a role as tutor at the Bath Arts Academy, he had no idea that a series of peculiar events resulting in the death of one of his fellow were going to land him prime suspect in a murder investigation. Who is framing him, and why?

Someone deliberately tried to electrocute her? Your Mrs Kroog talked me into giving a spiel on my work up there but I’ve gone right off that place. It’s creepy and crumbling and right by the forest. I bet the trees move by themselves. And I don’t like the sound of your wild man of the woods, either. Be careful up there, hon.

Don’t worry, I’m a painter. What could possibly go wrong? Anyway, the place is crawling with police. Needham is here. Already grilled me a bit. But I’m only half done, apparently.”

This week’s Teaser Tuesday sentences were extracted from the book The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty. I’m a huge Liane Moriarty fan, and I’m excited to be reading this book for this month’s selection of my monthly book club. I’ll be posting a review of this book soon, but in the meantime here is a little teaser:

She stopped, and noticed there was a salty taste in her mouth now, along with the chocolate. She wiped her hands impatiently across her wet face. She hadn’t even been aware that she was crying. Will took a step towards her as if to comfort her and she held up both her palms to stop him from coming any closer.”

moonstone coverThis week’s Teaser Tuesday sentences were extracted from the book The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins. This is a book I have been meaning to read for quite some time. This is the third classic book I’m reading for another challenge–The Classics Club Challenge.

I’m in the very early chapters of this book, and I’m loving it so far. I’m curious to see how this story will unfold.

“A strange gentleman, speaking English with a foreign accent, came that morning to the house, and asked to see Mr. Franklin Blake on business. The business could not possibly have been connected with the Diamond, for these two reasons–first, that Mr. Franklin told me nothing about it; secondly, that he communicated it (when the gentleman had gone, as I suppose) to my lady.”
