Teaser Tuesday 345: One Book in the Grave

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by The Purple Booker. 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 another cozy mystery, One Book in the Grave by Kate Carlisle.

I grabbed onto the edge of the sturdy display case to steady myself and looked down to see what had caused me to trip. It was a man’s shoe.

(Chapter two)

Series: Bibliophile #5

There may be grave consequences for bookbinder Brooklyn Wainright as she attempts to solve two murders tied to one book . . . .

Brooklyn’s chance to restore a rare edition of Beauty and the Beast seems a fairy tale come true — until she realizes the book belonged to an old friend of hers. Three years ago, Max Adams, a brawny, renowned papermaker, fell in love with a stunning beauty, Emily, and gave her the copy of Beauty and the Beast as a symbol of their love. Soon afterward, he died in a car crash, and Brooklyn has always suspected his possessive ex-girlfriend and her jealous beau of wrongdoing.

Now she decided to find out who sold the book so she can return it to its rightful owner—Emily. She believes a rare book dealer can assist her, but when she arrives at his shop, she finds him murdered. Is it possible that the same couple who may have killed Max is now after his edition of Beauty and the Beast? With the help of her handsome boyfriend, Derek Stone, Brooklyn must unravel the murder plot—before she ends up in a ploy herself . . . .
