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 the page
~BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! ( make sure that what you share doesn't give away 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'm currently reading a zombie book for my monthly zombie challenge. I admit I'm not very far took it to the beach yesterday and spent most of the time talking to family and watching the waves. 

Something Strange and Deadly 
by Susan Dennard
Published July 24 2012 

The frenzied cries of the crowd’s escape were fading. Now was my chance to run. I stooped down to retrieve my parasol.
That was when I noticed the smell. The stench of carrion.
My hands froze over the parasol. I lifted my gaze with deliberate caution and met the face that now waited outside the window, where only minutes ago I had waited. It was a corpse. One of the Dead.
Time stopped as my mind took in the creature before me. Lidless eyes with creamy, decomposed irises. Half a mouth revealing yellow teeth. The tatters of a brown, wool suit hanging loosely over waxy skin. Brittle, gray hair. And now the corpse lifting his arm.
I shrieked and clambered backward. My feet tangled in my petticoats, and I crashed to the floor in a flurry of skirts.
No, no, no!
Whimpers burst from my mouth as I struggled to stand, but my corset hampered my range of movement and balance. I couldn’t draw in a decent breath.

What's your teaser this week?
