Teaser Tuesday - Lady of Ashes, by Christine Trent

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* 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 and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!


So I've finished Rise of Empire by Michael J Sullivan, and I think I'm going to take a bit of a break before I move on to book 3 in the series.  This week I've begun a new novel, and I'm breaking all the rules today because not only is my Tease more than two sentences, there's going to be two Teasers! 

The Tease:
From the Prolgue:
"I killed a man today, and although it I didn't mean to do it, I must confess that it wasn't unpleasant at all.  I suppose some might call it murder, but is it really murder if the victim deserved it?  If he was especially irritating?"

From Chapter One:
"Violet Morgan often wondered why she was so skilled at dressing a corpse, yet was embarrassingly incompetent in the simplest household task, such as selecting draperies or hiring housemaids.  If only they hadn't moved to fancier lodgings in a more elegant section of London, she wouldn't be burdened with having to learn a myriad of rules for keeping a proper home."
 -Lady of Ashes, by Christine Trent
What's your Tease?


  1. Theses are both great teasers. They both have me curious. Especially the first one.

    I broke the rules a little bit this week too. :) Here's mine:

  2. Sounds like a very interesting book! Thanks for sharing:)

    Here's my TT
