Teaser Tuesday: Dark Road to Darjeeling by Deanna Raybourn (A Lady Julia Grey Novel)


TEASER TUESDAYS :

Teaser :

Dark Road to Darjeeling (Lady Julia Grey)
"Yes, but she does have a point.  Pain, grief, loneliness, they are quicksand.  They will consume a man if he does not lift a finger to extricate himself."

"If you struggle in quicksand, you die faster," Plum corrected.

I waved an impatient hand. "You know what I mean.  If a man in peril uses his wits and his natural ingenuity, he may save himself.  But a man who gives up has already perished."

~ page 83 “Dark Road to Darjeeling" (A Lady Julia Grey Novel, Book 4) by Deanna Raybourn

About the Book (from Amazon):
After eight idyllic months in the Mediterranean, Lady Julia Grey and her detective husband are ready to put their investigative talents to work once more. At the urging of Julia's eccentric family, they hurry to India to aid an old friend, the newly widowed Jane Cavendish. Living on the Cavendish tea plantation with the remnants of her husband's family, Jane is consumed with the impending birth of her child—and with discovering the truth about her husband's death. Was he murdered for his estate? And if he was, could Jane and her unborn child be next?

Amid the lush foothills of the Himalayas, dark deeds are buried and malicious thoughts flourish. The Brisbanes uncover secrets and scandal, illicit affairs and twisted legacies. In this remote and exotic place, exploration is perilous and discovery, deadly. The danger is palpable and, if they are not careful, Julia and Nicholas will not live to celebrate their first anniversary.
I always look forward to reading everyone's teasers! ~ Wendi

ANOTHER teaser from a book that I SO want! (I have made myself a promise to not buy one book until I have finished at least two on my personal TBR shelves - and it's not even a week in to the New Year and I almost caved) Thanks for the teaser! (and btw, don't you just LOVE that cover?!)
