Teaser Tuesday 291: A Touch of Gold

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of A Daily Rhythm. 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 week’s teaser is from A Touch of Gold, a cozy mystery by the late Joyce Lavene and husband Jim.

Suddenly the whole world exploded into a ball of fire with such force that it blew me backwards into Duck Road. I heard the screech of brakes around me, and everything went black.

(Chapter 1)


I finally reached the chair and ruthlessly shoved the bag of clothes on the floor so I could collapse where they’d been. I hadn’t known it would be such an ordeal moving a few feet. I was exhausted. Apparently being partially blown up took a lot out of a person.

(Chapter 2)

Series: Missing Pieces #2

The mayor of Duck, North Carolina, Dae O’Donnell is a woman with a gift for finding lost things. Sometimes it leads her to lost keys or earrings—and sometimes it leads her to murder . . .

Long before he became curator of the Duck Historical Museum, Max Caudle contributed its greatest treasure — a wooden chest full of gold he discovered washed up on shore. Tales of pirates and their booty have long been part of local folklore, but history is really made when someone fires a cannonball into the museum, destroying the building and killing Max, before looting the gold.

Injured in the explosion, Dae finds her abilities have been amplified, overwhelming her with intense visions every time she touches an object. Now, if ex-FBI agent — and burgeoning beau — Kevin Brickman can help Dae decipher her visions, she just might be able to stop the modern-day buccaneer from killing again . . .
