Teaser Tuesday...Smelling of Jasmine

After reading the truly heartbreaking memoir by Mary Karr, The Liar's Club, I had to choose something light and easy.  Because of that, I present an excerpt from Jude Deveraux's The Scent of Jasmine:

"Puzzled by what she'd said, Alex began to hurry across the fields, and Cay stayed with him.  After they'd been running in a zigzag pattern for nearly twenty minutes, Cay was tempted to remove the cloak and her gown and run in her underwear.  And if she did that, she'd use the Scotsman's knife to cut her corset strings.  Right now she needed to breathe deeply more than she needed a tiny waist." (46)

Amen, Sister!!
