Teaser Tuesday: The Strange Case of Finley Jayne by Kady Cross

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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Today I'm reading The Strange Case of Finley Jayne by Kady Cross. This is the free prequel short story that gives an introduction to her young adult debut novel - The Girl in the Steel Corset. I read it first and really enjoyed the steampunk aspects of the story. This short story is also full of steampunk goodness.

"I don't have a chance with him, either," Finley jumped in, hating that guilty look on her employer's face. "All I'll ever have is the memory of his backside."
I like the we keep seeing hints of the Duke of Greythorne throughout this one but Finley doesn't get a chance to meet him. It is his backside she is referring to here.


  1. I have never read steampunk I so want to change that soon.

  2. Must have been one heck of a backside!
