Teaser Tuesday: 16th February 2016

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. If you want to join in grab your current read, flick to a random page, select two sentences (without spoilers) and share them in a blog post or in the comments of A Daily Rhythm.


For this week’s teaser I’ve decided to pick a couple of sentences from my current read, Black Widow by Chris Brookmyre. It’s about a surgeon and former blogger who may or may not have killer her husband of 6 months. Seems an appropriate choice for a post Valentines teaser 🙂 It’s definitely a cautionary tale for bloggers everywhere.

It’s terrifying to consider what can hang upon the smallest of quirks of happenstance: how much might be different but for the most minor confluences. I have no way of knowing for sure – we can’t run the events a second time to compare – but there is a strong case for saying that I would not have ended up where I am now but for a paper jam in a printer.

You’ve really got to watch out for IT equipment it causes all kinds of problems.

Happy reading everyone.

  1. I do believe in those quirks of fate or happenstance…like if I hadn’t gone to that party in 1970, I wouldn’t have met the love of my life…lol.

    Of course, we are no longer together, but that doesn’t negate the wonder of it all.

    Thanks for sharing, and I’m now intrigued by this book. Here’s mine: “THE SHADOW YEAR”
