Just teasing…

I am doing my best to tear myself away from the latest sudoku magazine. So far I have read the first few pages of two books.

Look at these teasers – do you know me well enough to guess which one I´ll read first?

“Waking up, George had a nasty taste in his mouth and a throbbing headache that made him want to cry. He was sitting in the living room, his hands and legs tied to the only upright chair. His upper chest had also been taped to the back of the chair, to ensure that he was totally immobile. There was another strip taped across his mouth.”

“Fran sat with her eyes closed. The small plane dropped suddenly, seemed to fall from the sky then levelled for a moment before tilting like a fairground ride. She opened her eyes to see a grey cliff ahead of them. It was close enough for her to make out the white straks of bird muck and last season´s nests. Below, the sea was boiling.”

    Dorte – Teasers can be such fun! Hmm… I’m going to say you’ll start with t he second one.

  2. Those are good teasers. I now want to know which books they came from.
    Hve you read any of the Sudoku Puzzle mysteries, a cozy series? Not too bad!

  3. I’m not sure. They both sound so exciting. Can’t wait to hear your reviews.

  4. Sarah says:

    I’ll go with Margot and say you’ll start with the second one.

  5. Petty Witter says:

    My vote goes to the first.

  6. Jose Ignacio says:

    Probably you’ll pick up the second one.

  7. Kelly says:

    Hmmm….. I’m guessing you’d pick the same one I would – the first one.

    I’m a fan of Sudoku, too. 🙂

  8. Bill Selnes says:

    Dorte: I cast my vote for two.

  9. Patti Abbott says:

    Although small planes make me more nervous than men tied up, I’ll go with two also.

  10. Anna says:

    Regrettably I don’t know you well enough (till now), to make this choice. For me, the first teaser sounds exciting – so I would start with this one.

    Nice to find you here again Dorte 🙂
    (hope my english is not too bad, I’m really doing my very best 😉 )
    Greetings from Germany!

  11. Barbara says:

    I guess the second one. Maybe the majority wins?

  12. Haha. All I will admit is that some of you are right!

    Anna: nice to see you here, and your English is absolutely perfect.

    Barbara: maybe – if they agree with me 😉

  13. Kerrie says:

    The second, which by the way is from the last title in the Shetland Quartet – and you will like it!

  14. I’m betting on the second one too.

  15. Kerrie: it is indeed.
    Margaret: perhaps I should have collected bets here … 😉
