Teaser Tuesdays (34)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. In this meme, we grab our current read, open it to a random page and share two teaser sentences from somewhere on that page with our readers.

Here is my teaser:

The smell of lavender reached him, and he wondered just which of the dolls might be triggering that smell in his mind: the fireman, the bride, the nurse? Or maybe it was simply coming form the cloth they were made with, somebody impregnating it with lavender to keep moths away.

~ p. 31, The Thirteenth Coffin by Nigel McCrery

What’s your teaser for this week?


  1. I LOVE the description here “impregnating it with lavender to keep moths away” – kinda chilling! I hope you’re enjoying this one.

  2. Ooo… That’s a creepy one! And the cover is also very atmospheric… Here is my TT for this week – https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2016/01/19/teaser-tuesday-19th-jan/

  3. Great us of language, “impregnating it”! I really enjoy your blog, so I have nominated it for the One Lovely Blogger award. Here are the details: http://ponderingtheprose.blogspot.com/2016/01/one-lovely-blogger-award.html. Have a great day.

  4. Sounds gruesomely good to me. 🙂

  5. I agree with Annette and I’m really intrigued!
    Thanks for sharing and stopping by my blog earlier 🙂

  6. It says “creator of Silent Witness” on the cover. Do you know, is that the British TV series? I liked it very much. Your teaser has me intrigued but also a little spooked. Here’s mine from Margaret George’s novel, Mary Called Magdalene: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-18l

  7. He thought it was the dolls that conjured the smell for him? That’s funny! I often have memories associated with various smells 🙂
    Thank for sharing, Majanka.

  8. I am curious…the dolls seem a little creepy, although I am a doll collector! LOL
    Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.

  9. Interesting teaser. The book cover and title make it sound and look like a scary book. I hope you are enjoying it. The teaser on my adult blog comes from Night Study by Maria V. Snyder. Happy reading!

  10. Yeah, I’m plenty crept out right now. The title matches up with the teaser.

  11. Hmm, I’m kinda wondering what’s going on there. 🙂 This one looks like it might be eerie…

  12. I love lavender but I am not sure I would like it in that setting. Great teaser and thanks for stopping by “A Spirit of Healing” 🙂

  13. Wow! Sounds interesting 🙂
