It's Tuesday - Time For Intros & Teasers

To take part in Tuesday Intros simply share the first paragraph of the first chapter of the book you are reading or are going to read. Tuesday Intros is hosted by Bibliophile By The Sea.

To take part in Teaser Tuesday turn to a random page in the book you are reading, and share two teaser sentences from that page, without sharing spoilers. Teaser Tuesday is hosted by A Daily Rhythm.

 Here's mine:

Tuesday Intro

The view from the breakfast room at Charton Minster was of the most beautiful garden in the whole of Dorset, but on this bright March morning Rose Courtenay hated it.
The sight of golden daffodils in full flower beneath the spreading trees merely reminded her she was trapped, perhaps for ever. She turned away and was about to go upstairs again when she heard her mother on the phone.

Teaser Tuesday

The new ward was made ready and took its first twelve patients. 'Two gas gangrene cases, seven snipers' bullets in the head, and three blokes got too close to grenades,' intoned the RAMC orderly who'd come in with the men.

19%, The Silver Locket by Margaret James

 This book counts towards my total for the New Author Challenge 2015 hosted by Literary Escapism.

The lovely cover and intriguing title would make me open the book, and the beginning intrigues me. This sounds like a story I'd enjoy.

I like the cover but I don't think I'd keep reading.

The intro didn't really catch my attention, but the teaser did. Sounds a bit like Downton Abbey. Girl Who Reads
