Teaser Tuesday

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!)

From Pages 5 & 6 of Christmas Mourning, a Judge Deborah Knott mystery by Margaret Maron.

"A tattooed green viper circled his wrist and streched its triangular head across the back of his hand. Judging by his stubbly chin, he was probably closer to sixteen than the average freshman and had probably been left back a time or two. ”


  1. You can't always judge someone by their looks. Perhaps this boy had a reason. Something sad or bad. I wish I'd had the wisdom to know that when I was in school.
    Here is my TT - http://fuonlyknew.com/2014/10/28/teaser-tuesdays-87-moore-zombies-and-the-alien-next-door/

  2. Interesting description. I wonder what made him look like he'd been left back. A blank expression, maybe? The book's cover makes me curious about the story.
    My Tuesday post features THE BEARWALKER’S DAUGHTER.

  3. That could be interesting, wonder what his story is. Nice teaser.
