Teaser Tuesday 262: The Blessing Way

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current book or recent read.
* Share a few "teaser" sentences from somewhere in the book.
* 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 so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

This week’s teaser comes from The Blessing Way by Tony Hillerman, a mystery set on the Navajo Reservation in Arizona. This is from about midway into the book.

Alice: This was my first time reading one of his books, and it was pretty good. Don't know whether I would read more.
