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 Teaser Tuesdays participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
This week’s teaser is from The Serpent on the Crown, the 17th in the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters.
I have never been certain whether Fatima is as simple as she appears, or cunning enough to appear simple. She accepted my garbled explanation with a nod and went on arranging tea cakes on a pretty flowered plate.
Do you have a ‘teaser’ to share with us?
I’ve been wanting to give Elizabeth Peters a try for years, love the teaser!
Here’s my TTT post

It’s an especially fun series if you are interested in Egypt and archeology. I like the first ones the best, when it was just Amelia and Emerson. Now that the kids are grown, my favs have to share the limelight. You might like the later ones the best though since you’re young.
Great teaser! I have never read up to the 17th book in a series. That’s real commitment you’ve got 🙂
Thanks, Anika, for stopping by and commenting. I love series mysteries. There are several that I’ve read seventeen or more. Beaton’s Hamish Macbeth and Agatha Raisin and Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Milhone are three that come to mind as being that long.
Love this teaser, this is a good one to get the reader to examine the behaviour of a character! Is she simple or really clever? I haven’t read an Elizabeth Peters book for years. Happy reading!
I didn’t read any for years either. I prefer the early ones before the children took over. Finally I got tired of them, but this one was great. (although I’ve heard the last two fell off again)
