Teaser Tuesdays: After the Funeral


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of 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! (If you're on Goodreads, I've included a button to add the book to your list just below the teaser!)

After finishing a couple of fantasy books in my TBR pile, I was in the mood for a little mystery... Specifically, mystery that has a touch of humor and amusing characters, which Agatha Christie's books always do!

"As you know," said Mr. Entwhistle, "I am the executor of Richard Abernethie's will--"

He was interrupted.

"I didn't know," said Cora Lansquener brightly. "Are you? Did he leave me anything?"
