Teaser Tuesdays - 4 Jan 2011

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!

Here we are in a new year - Happy New Year! - and I happen to be reading a book I've read before! You just can't pass up a great series or mystery, so here is my teaser:

Don't Take Any Wooden Nickels by Mindy Starns Clark

'We stood, and I thnked her before walking away. In a sort of daze, I collected my bags from the front desk and walked toward the door. As an afterthought, I turned back to the woman, who was now in the telephone area, dialing a number.
"Excuse me," I said, going back to her. She disconnected the call before she had finished dialing it.
"Did Tom leave some paperwork for me, by any chance? There would've been a couple of files or maybe some manila envelopes?"
"No," she said. "Nothing like that."
I started to turn away.
"Oh, hang on," she said. "There was one thing."
I turned back and waited expectantly as she opened her purse. From it she pulled a giant silk flower, a mum, resplendent in a vivid red. I took it from her, smiling in spite of myself when I saw a big safety pin clipped to the back.
"He said to give you this," she reported, a puzzled look on her face. "And to tell you that, next time, he dares you to wear it."'
