First Paragraph, Tuesday Teaser -- Marrying Up


Every Tuesday, Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea posts the first paragraph of her current read. Anyone can join in. Go to Diane's website for the image and share the first paragraph of the current book you are reading.
This looks like a fun quick read. Marrying Up by Wendy Holden, which describes itself as a romantic comedy. Here's the intro:
"Miss! Miss!" Squinting in the bright sunshine, the little boy with the trowel was waving at Polly. "I've found something, Miss. It's Roman. Definitely Roman."
 

Also this week is Teaser Tuesdays.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!
Open to a random page of your current read and share a teaser sentence from somewhere on that page.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!
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 from page 92:
Her husband rounded on her furiously. "All crown princes of Sedona wear military uniform from the age of six. It's --"
"Traditional?" offered the Queen, meeting his gaze boldly.

I could use something light right about now so I know I'd read at least a few more pages. This one is new to me, but hope you like it.

Thanks so much for joining in this week.
