Teaser Tuesdays

MizB of Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. Anyone can play along. Just do the following:

*Grab your current read.
*Open to a random page.
*Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
*BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! You don't want to spoil the book for others.
*Share the title and author too, so other TT particpants can add it to their TBR lists if they like your teaser!

Here's mine from The Leavenworth Case by Anna Katherine Green (p. 101):

That the guilty person for whom Eleanore Leavenworth stood ready to sacrifice herself was one for whom she had formerly cherished affection, I could no longer doubt; love or the strong sense of duty growing out of love, being alone sufficient to account for such determined action.

This one sounds very tempting....and emotional. Thanks for sharing.

I have this on my TBR for later this year -- both for my Victorian Lit reading challenge as well as a crime fiction one! Great teaser!

Excellent teaser. I've got this one on my list for this year, too. Sounds like a great vintage mystery.
