Teaser Tuesday 1: Keepsake Crimes

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

Perhaps you've heard of his law firm, Leonard, Barstow and Streeter? Well, the thing of it is, Seth is my attorney.

That last part had images of sequined men floating through my head - and I am sure they will dancing in there ALL DAY!
