Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme, hosted by MizB over at Should be Reading. Anyone can join in so here's what you do...

Grab your current read & let it fall open to a random page.
Share with us two “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
Share the title of the book… that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given but remember...avoid spoilers please.
leave a link to your Teaser in my comments or pop on over to
Should Be Reading leave your Teaser and get tantalising glimpses of other reads.

*Disclaimer: this event may be hazardous to your TBR health.

My teaser is from Roald Dahl's Tales of the Unexpected...

At that point, Mary Maloney simply walked up behind him and without any pause she swung the big frozen leg of lamb high in the air and brought it down as hard as she could on the back of his head. She might just as well have hit him with a steel club.


*and all women who have ever had their cooking skills dissed say, amen.

I think Hitchcock made a short story about this for TV years and years ago and the woman did thaw it and cooked it. No evidence! Clever, clever woman !

Well, that certainly is an intriguing teaser!

My teaser is here

I liked your positive take on having a house fire! Nice teaser, I've had many moments of wishing I would have done similar.
