Teaser Tuesdays- In the Shadow of the Cypress



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!
Here is mine:

"The doctor set down his cup, pressed his fingertips together as if in prayer, and confided that he believed he might have a solution, but one entailing great personal risk, possible loss of reputation, and worse. However, he would only divulge it if he could be assured that his host would take a blood oath sworn before his ancestors that he never reveal the device, or the doctor's part in the scheme."
~Page 115 , In The Shadow of the Cypress by Thomas Steinbeck

Ominous, but I am betting the host will indeed take the blood oath and then the fun begins.

Abi said...

thanks for visiting my TT.

Just so you know. You mentioned you want to read the book. I advise reading The Secret first. The Missing is second book in her series. You'll miss the secret to why she's missing if you don't read it first.

Now did that make since? You won't be disappointed though. Beverly Lewis is good.

Phyl said...

I'm very excited to have read Abi's comments, above, about The Secret and The Missing. And I'm thrilled that The Missing is out now, because I got a review copy of The Secret last year and really liked it. So woo!

But yes, you do need to read The Secret first.

Meanwhile, I love your teaser! It really does make me want to read the book. Well chosen!

My own teaser is at Bookishgal.

What kind of device? This is a very teasing teaser!

Thanks for stopping by my teaser at Find the Time to Read!

Hope said...

Ohmy! This sounds like an interesting book . . . and I am really 'out of the loop' . . . I didn't know that John Steinbeck's son was a writer. Will definitely check on this.

Serpentine Librarian said...

This sounds really interesting...hmm, what kind of device are they talking about?

Thanks for visiting my teaser.

Lizzy said...

uh oh, sounds a bit sketchy to me. I don't know if I could trust a doctor that didn't want to be associated with whatever the outcome was. Great teaser!

Zee said...

Great teaser! I wonder what the device is. Do I have to swear an oath too? :)

celi.a said...

Not too sure I like the sound of that - sounds suitably ominous! But a great tease, nonetheless. Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday!
