Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday 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
·
In a comment, 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

Here's mine:


"It had been in Montmor's academy the Huygens had topped Galileo. And now Montmor was more certain than ever that the scientific glory of France -- and his own reputation as ulitmate patron of knowledge -- would continue to be made within the wall of his palatial home."

-Blood Work: A Tale of Medicine and Murder in the Scientific Revolution by Holly Tucker, p. 86
