Teaser Tuesdays - November 10

"Agatha remembered when she was at school, she vowed that when she had her first pay cheque, she would walk into a sweet-shop and buy all the chocolate she wanted. By the time it happened, her desires had focused on a pair of purple high-heeled shoes with bows. She enjoyed having enough money that enabled her to buy what she wanted." (page 85)

by M.C. Beaton

This is the first Agatha Raisin mystery, and a delight to read!

  1. Lovely teaser. I'm wondering now what I bought with my first pay cheque but I really can't remember. I love Agatha and I particularly liked this one - I hope you do too!

  4. So glad you are enjoying it:) I had the misguided idea I would buy a leather jacket with my first few paychecks (when I was 15) but when I saw how little I had left after putting away the obligatory 33% into savings, my desires became a little less grand.

  5. I saved all the money from my first summer long babysitting job to buy my own school clothes instead of letting my mother choose. Funny how I think her taste has gotten better over time.

    This sounds like a fun book and an interesting series.

    My teaser is up at Calico Contemplations.

    Took me back to my first paycheck...I was in high school and wanted a cashmere sweater.

    My teaser is here:

  11. I saved all of my de-tassling money for a pair of Jordache jeans. That is right up there with purple high heels, in my book!

  12. Funny how your desires change over time. It would depend on my mood that particular day whether it would be chocolate or shoes.

  16. Laurel-Rain Snow - I agree...about both the title and the shoes!

    Bluestocking - Purple heels... what's not to like, lol!

    Beth - That title is an attention-getter, lol!

    Sandy - At 18, I saved forever for a pair of Calvin Klein jeans. Wish I could still wear the same size now!

  18. Stacybuckeye - My choice between those two would vary from day to day...guess I'd really want both! Hope to finish the book within the next few days.

    Thanks for stopping by :)

  20. What a hard choice shoes or chocolate!! What did she get?

    ReplyDelete
  21. I would've went with the chocolate!! LOL!!

    ReplyDelete

  23. I love the sound of this title - Quiche of death! Quiche always used to appear at church fetes when I was little and I hated it.

    I saved my first pay cheque - how sad. It was only about £40 as I used to work 4 hours a week, for £3 an hour.

  24. Kim - I will be reading more of Agatha, too.

    Nise' - I guess she went for the shoes.

    Staci - It's a tough choice...my answer would vary from day to day!

    Darlene - Funny how true it is!

    Amy - I know I would want both. Hope you enjoy Agatha, too!

    Verity - I like quiche but my husband doesn't, so I rarely make it. The book has me thinking about making one this weekend...just hope it doesn't turn out like the 'quiche of death'!

  25. This is a great teaser! I'm also a little spooked out because this is the season of eating. I'll have my heart in the mouth when I see a quiche or a pie. :)

  26. Agatha is one of my favorites! Sometimes I want to shake some sense into her, but I still really like her.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Matt - LOL! We are getting into that season of eating, and I'll be avoiding quiche ;-)

    Beth F - Agatha is wonderful! I know I'll be reading more of the series and look forward to getting to know her better.
