Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should Be Reading. Here's how you play:

* 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!

Teaser # 1:
You don't say, said Mr Zephyr.
I do say.
And how did you come by this talent? asked Mrs Zephyr.
Ambrose shrugged.
Indeed, said his father.
Ambrose's face began to glow.

Teaser # 2:
"...and Saturday afternoon at Sir William Lucas", Miss Bingley ticked off the last name on her list and looked up to see her brother brighten considerably. "Is this acceptable, Charles?"
~ taken from page 41, Fitzwilliam Darcy Gentleman: An Assembly Such as This by Pamela Aidan

Teaser # 3:
Windows were opening; heads in nightcaps were poking out of them and shouting down questions; people in the street were shouting back answers. A great many people seemed to be hurrying in the same direction as Captain Gilbrey's carriage.
~ taken from page 275, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke
