Teaser Tuesdays- The Making of a Duchess



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 man who might kill her if her knew what she had been sent to do. Her stomach clenched again, and grabbing the vase nearest her, she promptly cast up her accounts."

~Page 56 , The Making of a Duchess by Shana Galen (ARC copy, page numbers may be slightly different)
My review of this fabulous novel.

I think we should all start referring to vomiting as "casting our accounts"...sounds so much more sophisticated!

PK Reeves said...

Just finished Making of a Duchess and loved it!

Reading now Blackthorne's Bride, so far it is a good read but Making of a Duchess is far superior.

Here's my teaser from Aisle B
of Patricia Falvey's Yellow House.

pussreboots said...

Enjoy your book. Happy TT.

Faye said...

Oh, lucky reader when we come upon a trilogy that starts so well. I'm in the mood for this kind of reading for the summer--too much modern day crime and mystery!

My TT is for "The Invisible Bridge", a first novel by Julie Orringer set in pre WW II. My link: Summit Musings

JHS. said...

Well, that's a phrase I've not heard before. What does it mean to "cast up" your accounts?? Intriguing.
