Teaser Tuesday, August 24

It's a Teaser Tuesday, people, and you know what that means: two sentences from what I'm reading right now in an effort to entice you into reading it, too. And lots of chatty visits back and forth among book blogs by those brought together in Teaserdom by MizB at Should Be Reading. May I offer you a cup of tea?

Brewing Up a Storm: A John Thatcher Mystery (John Putnam Thatcher Mysteries)Here's the teaser from Brewing Up a Storm by Emma Lathen. (The brew here is beer, not tea; more specifically a non-alcoholic beer called Quax. I could get you one of those, if you prefer.)

"But they see adults drinking in every restaurant with a liquor license."

Aware that she herself had polished off two glasses of wine with her lunch, Madeleine knew there had to be a distinction escaping the Honorable Member.

This was one of the last, if not the last John Putnam Thatcher mysteries, published in 1996. It's very strange reading about JP in the '90s. Good thing no one ages in these books.

Thanks for stopping at my blog, come back again soon!

Good teaser! It gives an idea of the theme, without giving away too much detail.
