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 Girl in the Green Raincoat by Laura Lippman (p. 6):

"Remember how you used to say you would love to take time off just to read and watch movies?" Crow asked her now, continuing to bustle around the room, putting a vase of flowers on the mantle, then moving them to the windowsill. For a straight man, he was alarmingly in touch with his inner Martha Stewart.
