Teaser Tuesday (#1)

This is my first time participating in  the Teaser Tuesdays meme.  I always love reading the teasers on other blogs-- even though they're very hard on my ever-growing TBR!  This week I've been reading a book which has endless suspense and plenty of potential for tantalizing teasers, so I thought I'd join in.  

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!

From Haunting Violet by Alyxandra Harvey.... 

"I'm sure it's just a coincidence," I insisted.  "A one-time aberration.  A reaction to the sun, maybe.  Or bad marmalade."  I couldn't very well tell her the truth, which was that I had seen a ghostly Rowena, but that wasn't the real problem.
The real people was that I didn't actually believe in ghosts. 
But they clearly believed in me. 
-- Page 64


I'm really liking this paranormal book and its Victorian setting.  Be sure to check it out sometime, and leave me the links to your Teasers so I can return the visit!

Okay, if you can see the ghost, do you get to not believe anymore? Sounds good. Thanks for the teaser.

Ooh, I''ve seen this book but I didn't realize it was set in the Victorian era - I LOVE the Victorian era, esp when there are ghosts about! Thanks for sharing the awesome teaser, definitely adding this one to my wish list now!
