It's Teaser Tuesday!

It's Teaser Tuesday!  Here's what you do...
  1. Grab your current read.
  2. Let the book fall open to a random page.
  3. Share two teaser sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  4. Share the title of the book that the “teaser” comes from, so people can find the book if they like the teaser.
  5. And again remember – avoid spoilers.
Here's Mine...
Mr. Burgoyne lights a cigar, climbs into his light buggy, lifts his hand.  The procession starts, leaving the park by the northeast wagon-gate.

Thank you for stopping by my blog - happy SITS Tuesday! I love the subject matter of your blog as I absolutely love books.

So - here's my teaser:

"Behind Forbes, a hundred yards out to sea, she saw the finger of God."

From The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson, his sequel to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo which I absolutely loved and I think this new book is going to be just as good!

I also love Lorna Landvik's books Ma What's 4 Dinner
