Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! 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!
My teaser this week:
"He was so outlandish, standing there in the sun. Water poured from his flattened hair, out of his ears, from his flopping cravat and his wilting collar, from inside his sleeves, from the bottom of his coat, and water sloshed in his boots as he took a step forward."
The Other Mr. Darcy by Monica Fairview
The Other Mr. Darcy is a Pride and Prejudice spin-off featuring Caroline Bingley and Mr. Darcy's American cousin, Robert Darcy. The two meet at the wedding of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy when Robert finds Caroline sobbing over her heartbreak.
So far I am enjoying this novel mostly because of its humorous scenes although it irritates me when quotes are made that are so similar to the original work. The teaser sentences refer to the appearance of Robert Darcy who has just fallen into a lake while out walking with Caroline Bingley. The scene reminded me of a scene from the BBC film where Colin Firth (as Mr. Darcy) has just been swimming in the lake at Pemberly but the effect is markedly different. Robert Darcy is definitely not like his proud British cousin.
What's your book teaser this week? Please leave a comment. I'd love to know what interesting books you are reading!
