Since this is my first post: English is my native language but not the language I studied; I grew up in France. I often struggle writing in English. I have a bit of dialogue to include in a creative a non-fiction article. The character changes tone in the sentence, from enthusiastic to suspicious, even conspiratorial. Here it goes: "You should go and visit this guy in Honfleur", the old farmer said. "He sells his cheese for 10 euros! Something's up." My question is: does "Something's up" fully convey the farmer's suspicion? Or should I work on something I do not have the chops to achieve, like: The old farmer began with enhusiasm "You should go and visit this guy in Honfleur", proceeded with shock “He sells his cheese for 10 euros!”, finished with suspicion “Something’s up.” Thank you for your help.
