This week's teaser is from:
Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier
And the teasers are:
1. "Please Mrs. Mason, I couldn't help it. The thief just ran into me. I expect they're after her ladyship's jewels."
"I didn't meet anyone on the stairs, so she must still be here somewhere. Make sure the front door is locked and search the house", ordered an energetic female voice. As for you, Walter, go upstairs at once and put something on to cover your hairy legs. Not a nice sight first thing in the morning.
2. "You can tell from that weird signet ring we wears," said Gordon. "Only gay guys wear that sort of thing."
"My grandfather always wore a signet ring," I said, although I didn't really want to get mixed up in this.
Then your grandfather was gay too, said Gordon.
You're just jealous," said Cynthia.
"Jealous? Me?"
" Course you are. Because Mr. Whiteman is the best-looking, most masculine, cleverest, straightest guy guy ever. Next to him you look like a silly, weedy, little boy."
"Thanks very much for the compliment," said Mr. Whiteman.
