Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser is from the most recent installment in a middle-grade series about Gilda Joyce, Psychic Investigator, a fun, plucky heroine with interesting fashion sense.

"Besides, you know how I love the theater, and let's face it -- a wedding is like a big show followed by a cast party. Of course, the bride and groom have to stay together the rest of their lives after everyone else goes home to recover from the big day."

GILDA JOYCE AND THE BONES OF THE HOLY by Jennifer Allison, pp. 58-9

"The baby's comforter, his square of moss-green blanket. It looked as if it had been trampled in the mud, and when Reggie picked it up and examined it, she could see a stain on it, a stain that wasn't tomato sauce or red wine, a stain that was blood"
WHEN WILL THERE BE GOOD NEWS? by Kate Atkinson, p. 192
