Strong Poison (The Lord Peter Wimsey Mysteries) by Dorothy Sayers
I got carried away with my teasers this week. I just couldn't stop at one!
"If anybody ever marries you, it will be for the pleasure of hearing you talk piffle," said Harriet, severely.
"A humiliating reason, but better than no reason at all." p. 104I love how this is worded.
"There is something about wills which brings out the worst side of human nature. People who under ordinary circumstances are perfectly upright and amiable, go as curly as corkscrews and foam at the mouth, whenever they hear the words 'I devise and bequeath.' p. 181Since I see a lot of similarities between Lord Peter Wimsey and Wodehouse's Wooster and Jeeves, I laughed when I read this. Lord Peter is talking to Bunter, his valet.
"Do you never overlook anything, Bunter?"
"I endeavor to give satisfaction, my lord."
"Well then, don't talk like Jeeves. It irritates me..." p.193
