Teaser Tuesdays: Peyton Place



Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading

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!

Peyton Place by Grace Metalious p. 90
"No," sighed Caroline. "And that's the pity of it all. Better if he were a bastard than what he is."

Okay, we're starting to get to some of the scandals at last! I don't know if the scandals and secrets will get out. Some are certainly widely known, but the really risky ones we're exposed to only as the narration shifts from family to family and from house to house.
