Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of  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!

I am starting "Ladies of the Lake" today by Haywood Smith.  I don't know much about the book except that 4 sisters find out their grandmother died and they have inherited the Hilltop Lodge at Lake Clare.  But there's a catch...  they have to all live there together for 3 months.  Sounds to me like this could be a really funny book.

" 'Does Mr. Slocum ever get out of his chair?' I asked Great-grandmother from behind my hand.  'He must,' she answered, 'he has eight children.'  I didn't get the connection, but all eight of the Slocum kids materialized like shy forest creatures, peering through the open windows and from the edges of the house."  page 77
