Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should be Reading. 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!

Bertie Plays the Blues (44 Scotland Street) by Alexander McCall Smith

His weekly appointment with his psychotherapist, Dr St Clair, was something he had tried to persuade his mother to abandon - to no avail - and he resigned to sitting through it, he imagined, until his eighteenth birthday. He was not sure why he had to do it, but all attempts to elicit an explanation from his mother had so far failed, and Dr St Clair's explanation had been distinctly less than satisfactory when he had taken the matter up with him. p. 22


  1. I keep thinking I'll start reading Alexander McCall Smith's books, but I haven't done it yet! Is this book a mystery?
    My Teaser excerpt is from THE STORYTELLER by Sharon Tillotson.

  2. I think I'd be a little frustrated as well! This seems like a fun book. Thanks for sharing! :)

    Here's my teaser:

  3. Why must he see a psychotherapist every week? Hmmm...

    My TT

  4. Intriguing! I am left wondering as well, why he need psychotherapy?


  5. I haven't tried his Scotland series but I couldn't even finish the first one in the Lady Detective series. Maybe I should give these a chance.

  6. I have one book by this author that I haven't read yet....from The Women's Detective Agency series. But this one sounds better...thanks for sharing.


  7. I tried one 44 Scotland Street book and went into it with the wrong expectation. I think I need to try it again!

  8. Interesting teaser, sounds good.

  9. Have not read any of the books in this series, but that passage does intrigue me. Mine: The First Prophet by Kay Hooper

  10. Hope you are enjoying this one!

    Feel free to check out my TT for the week here :)

  11. I get the feeling they are trying to tell the narrator he's crazy. Great Teaser.

  12. That must be frustrating! Wonder why his mom feels like he needs to see the therapist though??

    Thanks for stopping by Bookmunchies (:

  13. I don't know what to think of the teaser...
    Here's my TT

  14. I haven't heard of this one before and it's not usually my kind of read, but it sounds interesting! I'll check it out. :)

    I'm a new follower!
