Teaser Tuesday 34: Sink Trap

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. This is the first in a cute, funny cozy mystery series featuring female plumber Georgiana Neverall.

I'd learned how to defend myself. But I also knew trying to disarm a nervous person with a gun was a good way to get yourself seriously killed. Especially when you were outnumbered, and your opponent had the element of surprise.

And I was surprised.

(pg 227)

About the book:
Former corporate drone Georgiana Neverall loves her new occupation as a plumber's apprentice, but is a bit surprised when she finds the favorite brooch of Martha Tepper, the town's former librarian, clogging a sink. Georgiana has a sinking feeling that Martha may have been retired permanently—and suddenly it's up to a plumber's apprentice to flush out a killer.

Adding this one to my wishlist. Mine is from Baby Proof.

Heather said...

Clarissa: This is definitely a fun series. Only two books so far, but I look forward to more.

Sarah: Don't forget to add book two, Lead-Pipe Cinch (featured next week), to your list as well! *grin*

Jan von Harz said...

Seriously killed as opposed to?
Great line. sounds like a humorous book. Enjoy!

Audrey said...

Great Teaser!! Sounds like my kind of book, though the author is new to me. Will check the library for her books!
Do you have to read the series in order?

HERE is my teaser for this week!

Marg said...

It's ages since I read a cozy mystery.

My teaser is here this week.

Creations by Laurel-Rain Snow said...

That sounds delightful...funny and unexpected.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Lisa said...

Sounds like something I would read.

Here's mine.

Alayne said...

Looks like a fun book! Nice teaser. I have two teasers this week at The Crowded Leaf.

Juju at Tales of Whimsy.com said...

Splendid teaser!
And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the cover.
(I'm a sucker for dogs and/or food covers)

Here is my Teaser Tuesday :)

Jennifer said...

Fantastic and fun teaser!

Alice Audrey said...

The librarian went down the drain? What a waste of resource material. :)

Heather said...

Jan: It is indeed a humorous read - with a little muuuurder added in. *g*

Audrey: Evans is a fairly new author, and I do recommend reading the books in order, simply because events of book 1 (Sink Trap) are mentioned in book 2.

Marg: I confess, I seem to be reading more cozies this year than anything else - much to the dismay of my TBR pile, LOL.

Laurel-Rain: It is a bit on the funny side. I love the main character's voice, which can be somewjat snarky at times. Sort of like me. *VBG*

Heather said...

Lisa: If you like cozy mysteries, do give it a try! :)

Alayne: Thanks, it was a fun, fast-paced read. Looking forward to your two-fer.

Juju: Thank you. This series definitely has cute covers and the dogs (there are two of them) their own unique personalities.

Jennifer: Thank you! *g*

Alice: Haha...funny. Methinks you should reread the description - and no skimming this time. Leave that to the plumbers! ;)

kaye said...

nice pick--I like a good cozy mystery. Kaye-the road goes ever ever on

Heather said...

Kaye: Thank you. After all the talk about this one in the Cozy Mysteries group discussions, I had to cave and buy both books when the second came out. Definitely a good buy!

celi.a said...

HA! This teaser is awesome. I wonder what it's like to be 'seriously killed?' As opposed to not seriously killed, of course. Great choice!

If you'd like, you can check out my teaser here.

Heather said...

Thanks, Celia! I'm glad you liked! :)

Lady Q said...

Love that teaser! That actually sounds like a really cool book! (says the plumber's daughter!) Here's my teaser for Captivity.

Heather said...

Lady Q: I think a plumber's daughter might enjoy this series very much. *G* Thanks for visiting!

The Westie Loving Therapist said...

Sounds great! I'm not sure I've ever met a female plumber. :) I read a mystery a few weeks ago about a female crime scene cleaner though. I'll have to check this book out. :)

Here's my teaser...

E.J. Stevens said...

Thanks so much for stopping by On the Bookcase.
For anyone else, here's my TT!

EJ: Thank you, and thanks for stopping by!

Barbara: Cozy and fun...definitely a good combination! :)
