Teaser Tuesday: Black Ties and Lullabies by Jane Graves

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading. To participate, all you have to do is the following:

  • Grab your current/upcoming read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share 2-3 "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • Be careful not to include spoilers! (You do not want to ruin the book for others.)
Share the title & author so that others who enjoy your "teaser" may add the book to their TBL pile.

At the same time he got a furtive eye roll from Bernie, Mrs. Caldwell's nose crinkled as if she smelled something rotten.
