Teaser Tuesday 53: Farm Fresh Murder

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 book or recent 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 is from the book I finished over the weekend, Farm Fresh Murder. Our heroine is up a tree.


Slowly this time, I lifted my behind again, my knees digging into the branch. I pushed myself forward, my hands scraping on the rough bark. The limb was not happy I was moving again. This time it not only wobbled, it creaked with displeasure. (pg 140)





About the book: Farm Fresh Murder by Paige Shelton
(A Farmer's Market Mystery #1)
Setting: Monson, South Carolina, USA
Genre: Cozy Mystery

Becca Robins leads a simple life, making jams and preserves on her very own farm. But when there's a murder in her quaint little town, she puts herself in the line of fire to defend her friend's innocence—and goes from making jam to being in one.

The Golden Eagle said...

Poor old tree. It sounds like the narrator of the story has some spunk! Great teaser.

My two sentences are from Morpheus Road: The Light by D.J. MacHale.

Danielle C. said...

It is a long time since I tried a new cosy mystery author, but this one tempts with its (I assume) gentle humour and gardening setting. I am going to look up more information on the author's website. Thank you for the idea :-)

Heather said...

Golden Eagle: Yes, this is definitely a heroine with some spunk. More than is good for her, LOL.

Danielle: I hope you like what you find on the author's website, and that you decide to give both her and the book a chance!

Is it that obvious?

Heather said...

Shelley: Maybe. Maybe not. I'm not telling. *WEG*

Alice: Noooooo comment.

Brenda ND said...

I haven't heard of Teaser Tuesday, but I think I like it. I like the tree climbing description.

Heather said...

Hi Brenda! Teaser Tuesday is a book meme I happened upon a year ago. It can be quite dangerous to an already towering TBR pile, but also a lot of fun.

Alice Audrey said...

lol
