Teaser Tuesday 30: Plaster and Poison

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.
* Share a few “teaser” sentences from somewhere in the book.
* 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 and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!


This was a great third installment to Jennie Bentley's "Do-It-Yourself-Mystery" series. I look forward to reading the fourth!




For a second, the world stood still. The only sound was that of Beatrice's labored steps on the stairs. I turned to her as she got to the bottom. "You didn't mention the gun."

I love how the last sentence is so short compared to the previous one

Here is my teaser http://limpetsandpenguins.blogspot.com/2010/04/teaser-tuesday-100413.html

Heather said...

Thanks, Clarissa. Looks like we were simulposting, lol!

Kathy Martin said...

Nice teaser! The books sounds good. Enjoy!

Peaceful Reader said...

I've never heard of this series! Sounds interesting. That last sentence really grabs your attention.
My teaser is The Homeschool Liberation League by Lucy Frank.

Heather said...

Kathy: I did enjoy it, thank you.

Peaceful Reader: This has been a fun cozy mystery series, with a great cast of characters.

Alice Audrey said...

I love a little casual mayhem. Good teaser.

Heather said...

Alice: I love a little mayhem in general. *WEG*

alitareads said...

Sounds like something that should have been mentioned! Great teaser :)

pussreboots said...

Oh dear. That's something big to overlook. My teaser is from The Language of Bees.

Beth said...

Looks like a fun read. Here is my teaser.

Creations by Laurel-Rain Snow said...

Ooh, now I'm hooked! Love that cover, too.

Here's mine:

Jan von Harz said...

have no idea what to think about this one. The title sounds quite intriguing though. Great teasers.

Amy said...

Fun teaser. I need to look this one up.

Audrey said...

I have seen these books at the library - will definitely have to pick one up!
Great teaser :)

Marg said...

It's been ages since I read a cozy mystery!


My teaser is here

Jennie Bentley said...

Thanks for the mention; I appreciate it!

Lisa said...

Sound like something I like to read.

Here's mine

Alice Audrey said...

lol. But you've got to admit, casual mayhem has a certain charming silliness.

Sue said...

This looks like a cool meme too. Never played this one. Sounds like a cool book. Intriguing.

Alayne said...

Very intriguing! My teaser is at The Crowded Leaf.

Lady Q said...

That's a great teaser! Here's my teaser for My Name is Memory.

justpeachy36 said...

Now that's a great teaser. I might have to try out the series.

Book Sake said...

Sounds like a fun mystery series!

My teaser is at BookSake.

Missy B. said...

Great teaser! Enjoy the book!

tweezle said...

That last sentence is a real grabber. Great teaser!

Here's my teaser for this week.

Heather said...

Alita: One would think, huh? LOL

Sarah: Yes, just a bit of an oversight. *g*

Beth: Yes, it was a fun book. I really like this series!

Laurel-Rain: Yay, a convert! And all the covers for this series are great.

Jan: If you like cozy mysteries, give the series a try. I've not been disappointed by any of the books.

Jana said...

I thought you might find it funny to know that with this post you FORCED me to buy all THREE of this series. lol

Heather said...

Amy: Thanks, I hope you check out all the books in this fun series!

Audrey: I hope this was enough of a tease to have you picking them up next trip to the library!

Marg: I've really gotten into cozies again the last couple years. There are some great series out there, and a lot of newer ones for those of us daunted by 10 or 20 book series, lol. Much easier to find the back list on a 3 or 5 bok series than a series that has been around for decades!

Heather said...

Jennie: You are most welcome, and thank YOU for visiting! :)

Heather said...

Lisa: If you like cozy mysteries, you might enjoy this series. It comes up fairly frequently in the "cozy mysteries" discussion at GoodReads.

Alice: True, it does. LOL

Sue: This is a fun meme, but be careful -- it can be extremely dangerous to your TBR pile. My book list just keeps growing! lol

Alyane: Thanks, it is a great series!

Heather said...

Lady Q: Thank you!

Michelle: Thanks, I hope you give the series a try!

BookSake: Welcome! Yes, this is definitely a fun series. Thanks for visiting!

Missy: Already enjoyed the book, but thanks!

Tweezle: The last sentence certainly gets your attention. Thanks for stopping by!

Jana: Forced?? Now that's a bit strong, don't you think? Hehehe... Actually, I almost sent you the first book when I saw a copt at HPB. It was right after you bought your house. Guess I should have gone with my instincts, huh?

okbolover said...

sounds interesting! I think I have the first book on my wishlist to read. I love cozies :)

Heather said...

Jana: Of course you would say that. *snicker*

OkBoLover: I hope you'll pull that first book off the wish-list or TBR pile and give it a shot! :)

Marg said...

I know exactly what you mean about being intimidated by some of the longer series.

Kaye said...

Hi Heather, kind of late commenting but wasn't around yesterday. This sounds like a good read if you've read 3 and anxious for the 4th. Sometimes by the 4th book, the series has fizzled! Enjoy your week in reading.
