Teaser Tuesday 20: Ghost Sudoku

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 at least two “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 teaser!

Ghost Sudoku is the fifth book in the Sudoku Mystery series by Kaye Morgan. I'm not into sudoku, but have enjoyed this series. A bit more than two lines, but I promise it's a good one!

She stepped into the mouth of the artfully rough stone structure, peering into the dimness inside. Yes, it was still nice, dark, and private, perfect make-out territory. And it hadn't been abandoned. The cushions on the rustic wooden bench in the back looked new.

Will I have to poke around under there to root him out? Liza thought in exasperation.

She rolled her eyes . . . and that's when she noticed the feet dangling just above her head.

(p. 39)

Cover blurb: After spending two weeks hiding out from the media for some R&R, Liza returns home to find her PR still going strong. She knows she has some fans in the sudoku world, but who would plaster her face all over town with the slogan Kelly for Mayor?

Liza's neighboring town is run by a dirty political machine. When she turns to an old classmate to see if the machine is behind these political shenanigans, Liza discovers that he's been murdered and that his terrifying problems have now become hers. Still, he's left his share of clues behind. Liza needs to unravel them fast, before someone uses her run for mayor to run her to the ground...

Harvee ~ All five books in this series are by the same author, Kaye Morgan. Is there a similar series I do not know about?

Kaye ~ This is a fun series. I really liked the last one and so far am enjoying this one.

Christina ~ It has been a good series, and so far I am enjoying this one. Naturally things only get better after the dangling feet. *G*

Alice ~ Hehe...guess my work here is done. *WEG*

Tweezle ~ Thanks! Naturally I can barely put it down now that we're finally getting into the mystery. Might actually finish it tonight!

Kaye ~ Thank you, it is indeed a fun series (and one I advise reading in order).

Emma ~ Definitely an original idea for a mystery series. I especially loved the previous book and the killer's modus operandi. Thanks for visiting!
