Teaser Tuesday 302: Engaged in Murder

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 selection is from Engaged in Murder by Nancy J. Parra (aka Julie Hyzy, according to the copyright page), the first book in a relatively new series.

I bit my lip as a strange feeling crawled up my spine. Was he passed out? Or was he dead?

(Chapter three)

Series: Perfect Proposals #1

Event planner Pepper Pomeroy is making the most of her current unemployment by arranging a surprise for her sister, Felicity. Warren, Felicity’s boyfriend, plans to lure his lovely lady into a private jet, propose, and whisk her away on a romantic vacation. He just needs Pepper to handle all the fine details in order to make it the perfect proposal—and it is. Everything goes so well when Warren pops the question that he suggests Pepper do this sort of thing professionally.

But before she can get her new business off the ground, there are some disturbing questions. Like who’s the dead guy Pepper finds in the ladies’ room of the jet hangar? Is it possible Felicity’s high-flying fiancĂ© has been hiding more than the engagement ring? Pepper’s not married to the idea of having a criminal in the family, so in order to protect her sister, she takes off in pursuit of a killer . . . .

Hello again,
I read two of the Kate Collins books and enjoyed them very much.
"Night of the Living Dandelion" and "Evil In Carnations"
I had not read any of her books before. Thanks for recommending her.
