It is time for another Teaser Tuesday hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading.  I have mentioned in past blogs that I am really enjoying the Aunt Dimity series by Nancy Atherton.  I discovered this series when I checked out a book on a sale table at B&N and then went home and purchased it for my Nook thinking it would be on sale there as well -- I was wrong.  In any event, it was a thoroughly enjoyable little read but I discovered that it was in the middle of a series and I decided that I needed to start at the beginning.  While it isn't necessary to begin at the beginning because each book appears to be stand alone with enough back history to fill you in so you aren't lost, it is a lot of fun beginning at the beginning.  The book I am going to tease you about today is the second book in the series, Aunt Dimity and the Duke, and my teaser is from page 23.

"I am Queen Eleanor," Nell announced, clutching Bertie with one hand and pinching the hem of her skirt with the other, "and this is Sir Bertram of Harris, and we do not speak with pheasants." "That's peasants, Nell."  Peter had known it would be a mistake for Dad to read the King Arthur stories to her but that was not the immediate problem.

Wouldn't you love to know what the immediate problem was?
