Teaser Tuesday 10: Sew Deadly




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!

This week's teaser is from the cozy mystery, Sew Deadly by Elizabeth Lynn Casey. I really enjoyed this book, and look forward to the next one in the series.



Milo Wentworth was most definitely a good-looking man. He was tall and lanky, his arms sporting just enough muscle to make a woman feel safe. His hair was just long enough to explore with gentle fingers. His eyes had a wonderful ability to smile before his lips did...

Not that she'd noticed or anything.

(Page 143)




A bit about the book:
Ever since she moved to Sweet Briar, South Carolina, Yankee librarian Tori Sinclair has been the talk of the tiny town. But she’s been so busy at work, winning over the sewing circle, and trying to forget her cheating ex that she hasn’t even had time to baste together a pillow, let alone mind local gossip. Then she finds the hometown sweetheart dead at her back door…

Love the cover :)
And it sounds like a good one

Heather said...

Alayne ~ It was fun! Some of the characters a quite a hoot.

Blodeuedd ~ It was good, and I liked the cover as well. In fact, I'd say I like most of Berkley's Prime Crime covers lately.

Any book that mentions the guys hair as "long enough to run fingers through" automatically has a thumbs up from me!

Heather said...

Sumanam ~ Thank you!

Jess ~ LOL...Milo is definitely a Hero To Die For.

Crystal said...

He definitely sounds like a nice-looking man. I have this one on my list to read. I am really starting to like cozy mysteries.

Heather said...

Crystal ~ I've been getting into the cozies a lot more this year, especially the Berkley Prime Crime Mysteries. They're usually fast, fun reads that are well-written and well-edited.

Nikki ~ Thank you!

Heather said...

Somer ~ There are indeed a lot of craft-related mysteries lately. For the most part I've been pleased. I think there were only two books the last couple years I absolutely did not like.

Alice Audrey said...

You had me at the title.

Heather said...

Alice ~ Shocker! LOL
