Teaser Tuesday ~ English Trifle

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought I would play for fun! 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!
Sadie's mouth went dry as she considered her present circumstance-standing behind a partially open door to a staff member's bedroom. How on earth would she explain her way out of that? Her eyes darted around the room, looking for a place to hide but seeing nothing. Even the bed-a favorite hiding place of hers in the past-was too close to the ground to afford her an opportunity. Not daring to shut the door, lest it capture the attention of whoever was in the hallway, she pulled as far to the side of the door as she could and did the only thing she could think of, close her eyes and hold her breath while thinking invisible thoughts. The footsteps stopped and she felt the hinge moving against her arm as the door was pushed open.
p. 224, English Trifle by Josi S. Kilpack

Ooh, can't wait to read this one. I read Lemon Tart and Devil's Food Cake and really liked the characters. I hope you are thoroughly enjoying the book.
