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 ruin the book for others.
*Share the title and author too, so other TT participants can add it to their TBR lists if they like your teaser.

Here's mine from Fatal Induction by Bernadette Pajer:
The first indication that Professor Benjamin Bradshaw's life was about to plunge again into chaos appeared in the form of a flatulent horse eating Mrs. Prouty's broad beans over the garden fence, its huge teeth tugging greedily at the vines.
Bradshaw knew wrath was sure to follow, but he felt a certain guilty pleasure in seeing the beans disappear.  It had been a long and abundant season, and his digestion could use a rest.
I'm just starting this one, so I thought I'd go with the opening...

The first paragraph made me laugh.
