Teaser Tuesday: The Book of Unholy Mischief by Elle Newmark

This week my teaser comes from The Book of Unholy Mischief by Elle Newmark, a novel set in Venice during the Renaissance, and that features lots of very food orientated passages - enough to keep on making me hungry, especially when they talk about making the first cheesecake which is my absolutely favourite dessert!

The teaser comes from page 308 (of the large print edition which is the version that my library had):

What you need to know is that some of us have taken on the task of collecting, recording, and protecting as much of this knowledge as we are privileged to learn. We save ideas worth thinking about, even when they're inconvenient, and especially when they're threatened.

Teaser Tuesday is host by Miz B at Should Be Reading. Head on over to find out all about it, and how to join in!

  23. Beautiful teaser! Who knew cheesecake had been invented that long ago? I've just finished a book set in the Renaissance myself, though completely different from yours, The Botticelli Secret by Marina Fiorato, a mystery set in 1482 and based on Botticelli's famous "La Primavera." (Next week's teaser!)

    Thanks for visiting!
