Teaser Tuesday 336: Pinned for Murder

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of Books and a Beat. 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 comes from Pinned for Murder by Elizabeth Casey. I love the opening page of this book!

As all reading enthusiasts know, books improve your life in unimaginable ways. They provide a momentary escape from the mundane, serve as food for the mind, and at times when humming isn't a socially acceptable way of passing the time with a less than interesting companion, books offer much-needed conversation starters.

That these bound feats of literature also make excellent stand-ins for doorstops, posture correctors, and hand weights is simply icing on the cake. But, like nearly everything else in life, books, when put to the test, have an area where they fail to achieve.

The ability to repel water is that area.

(Chapter one, first three paragraphs)

Series: Southern Sewing Circle #3

The members of South Carolina's Sweet Briar Ladies Society sewing circle are as loyal and close-knit as the day is long. But when the richest and meanest woman in town turns up murdered, the new Yankee librarian Tori Sinclair finds that some threads can bind dangerously tight.

Tori Sinclair feels like she's known her sewing sisters forever. That is until the richest and meanest woman in Sweet Briar turns up murdered -- and Rose, the circle's feisty matriarch, refuses to believe her troubled former student was responsible. With suspicion and gossip spinning out of control, something worse than just ruffled feathers is threatening to tear the town apart . . .

Now Tori must confront her and her friends' deepest fears in order to mend fences. And they will need all their skill to pull together loose scraps of clues in order to create the perfect picture of truth . . .

You manage to find some of the most interesting cozies. I assume the book within the book got wet.

Why, thank you. A whole bunch of books got wet, victims of flooding during a hurricane.
