Teaser Tuesday: Dark Road to Darjeeling by Deanna Raybourn

I am thoroughly enjoying my read of this, the fourth book in the Lady Julia Grey series of mysteries by Deanna Raybourn. I am sure that the people on the train must have been looking at me somewhat quizzically this afternoon as I was grinning madly while reading away! I am already looking forward to the next one!

My teaser comes from page 11:

Within minutes the porters had fished me out and restored me to dry land where I was both piqued and relieved to find that my little peccadillo had caused my siblings so much mirth they were clasped in each other's arms, stilll wiping their eyes.

"I hope you find it amusing when I die of some dread disease," I hissed at them, tipping the water from my hat.
Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading. Head on over to find out all about it, and how to join in!
