Teaser Tuesday - March 25, 2014

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. 

My teaser today if from The Clockwork Scarab (A Stoker & Holmes Novel #1) by Colleen Gleason.  It features the sister of Bram Stoker and the niece of Sherlock Homes.  

"Waitin' for something?" said a male voice.  Very close behind me.  My eyes popped open, and I barely managed to swallow a gasp of surprise."  page 47

From Goodreads:

"Evaline Stoker and Mina Holmes never meant to get into the family business. But when you’re the sister of Bram and the niece of Sherlock, vampire hunting and mystery solving are in your blood. And when two society girls go missing, there’s no one more qualified to investigate.

Now fierce Evaline and logical Mina must resolve their rivalry, navigate the advances of not just one but three mysterious gentlemen, and solve murder with only one clue: a strange Egyptian scarab. The stakes are high. If Stoker and Holmes don’t unravel why the belles of London society are in such danger, they’ll become the next victims."
