Teaser from The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie

“What fun it will be, responded Tuppence. “Marriage is called all sorts of things, a haven, and a refuge, and a crowning glory, and a state of bondage, and lots more. But do you know what I think it is?”


“A sport!”

“And a damned good sport too,” said Tommy.

(from The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie)

Okay, so it’s more of a quote than a teaser really, since it has nothing to do with the actual mystery. I liked it though. Our marriage is fun a lot of the time.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Play along. The rules are easy and I only cheated a little. Grab your current read, open to a random page, and give us two teaser sentences. Remember, no spoilers.

My Kindle copy was free and the above is my honest opinion.


  1. Gotta love that name…Tuppence. For some reason though, it’s bringing to mind Mary Poppins and the “feed the birds” scenes. Anywho….great teaser! Love the cheerful banter….totally see why you picked it. Happy reading!
