This week, my teasers come from page 103 of the whodunit I'm currently reading: Index to Murder, by Jo Dereske:
Ruth, who was as likely to be late as early, already sat at a table beside the front window in Saul's Deli. Not only that, she was halfway into a meal of a double bacon cheeseburger, onion rings and French fries, coleslaw, and peanut butter pie, plus a chocolate milk shake.Please. I haven't had breakfast yet. Anyway, I don't really know what's happening there, since I've just started the book. I do know that "Ruth" is the best friend of the book's protagonist – librarian and amateur sleuth, Helma Zukas (this is "A Miss Zukas Mystery").
I'm also still reading The Time Traveler's Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger. Well, at over 500 pages (in paperback), it's a book I'm probably going to be reading for quite a while. So here are a couple of teasers from that one, too (page 229):
It's perfect, buttery and cool. The next course is salmon, with long pieces of asparagus in an olive and rosemary marinade.What's with this food theme I seem to have going here? (And I swear those were random picks.) Actually, a lot of the action in Time Traveler seems to take place at meal times or while the characters are having coffee or parties or other get-togethers where food is present. OK, I think it's definitely time for breakfast now!
