Teaser Tuesdays: Cadavers Are a Girl's Best Friend

This week, I'm still reading Ariana Franklin's Grave Goods, the latest in her Mistress of the Art of Death series of mystery novels set in 12th Century England. If you're not familiar with the books, I should probably explain that they center around Adelia Aguilar, a sort of Medieval version of a medical examiner. This bit comes from page 279:

He kissed her hard and settled back comfortably. "If you're a good girl, I'll try and bring you a corpse or two to play with."

I'm not sure who's promising Adelia such pleasures in this scene – haven't got that far in my reading yet. But since messing around with corpses and crime scenes is her specialty, I'm sure his offer made her little heart go pitter-pat.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by mizB17 at Should Be Reading. If you'd like to read more teasers, or participate yourself, head on over to her blog. And these are the rules: Grab your current read; Let the book fall open to a random page. Share with us two (2) "teaser" sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. You also need to share the title of the book that you're getting your "teaser" from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given! Please avoid spoilers!
