Would you relocate for two weeks to a small Scottish town called Wigtown to run a book shop? I know that i would if i got the chance.
So i have been delayed writing my Monday post on books. Naughty me i know! Many things have been happening over the last week including moving to a new flat, so all the rigmarole of packing, cleaning, unpacking more cleaning etc….. have taken up the time i would normally spend planning and writing posts in advance.

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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 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!
You can either share here in the comments if you don’t have a blog or create a pay and link it back here.
So here is mine:
