Teaser Tuesday -

Teaser Tuesday
The rules are:
  • 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 and author 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!
Why did you die when the lambs were cropping?
You should have died at the apples’ dropping,
When the grasshopper comes to trouble,
And the wheat-fields are sodden stubble,
And all winds go sighing
For sweet things dying.
Bit of an atypical teaser as it's the poem by Christina Rossetti which introduces Robert Galbraith (aka J K Rowling's) the Cuckoo's Calling - the book title occurs earlier in the quote! Our bookgroup book of the month, and this is a easy (and good) read - at least so far! I intend to tease something from the actual text next week!
