Teaser Tuesday – May 11, 2021 #NewBook #TeaserTuesday #bookbloggers #AGingerbreadHouse @severnhouse

My new Tuesday post where I’ll ‘tease‘ you with the cover, blurb, and first paragraph of one of the advanced reader’s copies from my own TBR.

This one is a title I downloaded from NetGalley.

I’m fully aware that many book bloggers have done something similar in the past, and acknowledge that this idea is not original.

Today, Tuesday May 11th, 2021 I want to introduce one of the ARCs on my TBR.

A Gingerbread House” is written by Catriona McPherson. I’ve read several of this author’s novels in the past and have enjoyed them very much. Expected publication date is August 3, 2021

Publisher: Severn House/Canongate Books

ISBN: 9780727850010 – 288 pages

from the prologue:

There was no mistaking the smell. Except, come to think of it, that’s not true. It was all too easy to mistake the smell, to miss that one crucial note in the putrid bouquet. For a start, it was damp and there was a years-deep rind of mould coating the bricks, eating into the mortar, softening the cheap cement that, once upon a time, had been used to pour the floor.

Intrigued? I was. Was she just smelling mildew? Or, perhaps, a dead body?

Is this a title that you would consider adding to your TBR pile?

Why, or why not?

Let me know in the comments.

    It sounds interesting. I’ve read one of her Dandy Gilver ones and wasn’t overly impressed – so look forward to hearing your thoughts whenever you get round to it!

    Intriguing, but my TBR is overloaded. I know it’s the same for all of us, but I’m not adding anything for a while. I’m almost afraid to read the reviews here – I always find a couple of books I’d like to add.
