Teaser Tuesdays: Malice in Miniature

This week my teaser lines come from Malice in Miniature, one of the Dorothy Martin mysteries by Jeanne M. Dams. In this snippet, Dorothy is visiting Brocklesby Hall, a country house whose owner collects and restores very detailed (and very valuable) dollhouses. At this point, no murders have been committed, but I have a feeling a little homicide is about to show up any minute now.
Voices...could be heard faintly, coming from various directions as I stood in the great hall. They echoed oddly off the hard surfaces and became a sort of clanging buzz, from everywhere and nowhere, resounding in my head. I wondered if the house had the usual quota of ghosts....if there were ever a house designed to inspire macabre legends, it was this one. (p.68)
So far, no ghosts. Maybe in the next chapter.

Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
