Teaser Tuesday 35: Lead-Pipe Cinch

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!

I read this book in April. It is book two in the Georgiana Neverall mystery series. See last week's post for a snippet from book one. This is a two-for-one week—two teasers for the price of one. *grin*




I don't think he had quite forgiven me for getting myself shot at. I wasn't too happy about it, either, having been the target, but that didn't seem to matter.
(pg 36)


Barry said Sean had found Blake in the moat. What had Blake been doing out here before the crew arrived? The man I knew wouldn't have been caught dead...

Ohh, bad choice of words.
(pg 39)


About the book:
Georgiana Neverall never pictured herself knee-deep in a muddy trench building a moat-part of a state-of-the-art castle that would soon house a retired Microsoft engineer.

She also never imagined being a murder suspect, but that's exactly what happens when a floater in the moat turns out to be her ex-boyfriend.

LOL "Oh, bad choice of words."

I love that kind of irreverent humor.

Heather said...

Marg: Yes, I look forward to seeing what kind of play on words they can come up with for a third book. *g*

Lisa: I hope you will search out the two books and give them a try!

Lady Q: Yes, you must find this series! BTW, your book title for the week definitely has my attention! *G*

Laurel-Rain: It certainly held my interest and was difficult to put down - positive signs of a good book!

Heather said...

Alayne: It is indeed both witty and a good mystery - a rare combination, but makes for a fun read when done well.

Audrey: Evans is a new-to-me author this year as well, but I like what I have read so far.

Alice: Yes, I laughed out loud when I read that line in the book. Good thing I wasn't on the bus at the time, LOL.

Kaye: This was definitely a fun read!

I am trying to talk our library into ordering this series since your teasers make it sound so good. :) Last week I mentioned that I had recently read a book about a crime scene cleaner. My teaser this week is from that book and can be found here...
