This Teaser Tuesday is missing a cover, because I’m gobbling up a reading copy that isn’t due until June, and the cover doesn’t seem to exist out in the world yet. To make up for it, I’m going to share this extra tid-bit: Mel Campbell’s pintrest where she shares her research for the book. GETTING INSIDE THE CREATIVE PROCESS! How exciting. 


Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!


“Last year, I visited the Bendigo Art Gallery to see an exhibition of clothes that once belonged to Hollywood actress Grace Kelly, later Princess Grace of Monaco. When I compared the garments to the photos, films and newsreels depicting Grace wearing them, I couldn’t believe the relatively solid, healthy-looking person in the images could possibly have possessed the kind of dainty, birdlike body that would have fitted into these sleeves and waistlines.”
