Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm.
To 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!
My current read is The Sixth Wife by Jean Plaidy, a pseudonym for Eleanor Hibbert who also wrote under various other names including Victoria Holt and Philippa Carr. Years ago I read a couple of the Victoria Holt romances and I’m pretty sure I read at least one under each of the other two names.
So here is my Teaser Tuesdays offering:
‘Beware of my lord Bishop,’ whispered Anne.
And afterwards, Katharine often heard those words when the hangings rustled or when the wind howled through the trees.
‘Beware . . . Beware . . . Beware of my lord Bishop.’ p.112
Jean Plaidy brings to life the inner turmoil of Katharine Parr when, after being a widow twice, she is chosen by the king to be his sixth wife, a role that brings anyone who plays it closer to the axe. I hope you find these few lines as intriguing as they are ominous. Watch for my review soon.
