Teaser Tuesday 352: Buried in a Book

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 is from Buried in a Book by Lucy Arlington, the first in her "A Novel Idea" mystery series.

I don't remember calling the police.

I vaguely recall the sound of sirens, but they seemed to remain at a distance, never coming close enough to break through the fog enveloping my senses.

(Chapter 12)

Series: A Novel Idea #1

After receiving her first pink slip at the age of forty-five, former newspaper journalist Lila Wilkins is desperate for work, even if it means taking a pay cut. After combing through the classifieds, Lila accepts an internship at A Novel Idea, a thriving literary agency in the Utopian town of Inspiration Valley, North Carolina.

Lila can't imagine anything better than being paid to read, but with a crew of quirky co-workers and a sky-high stack of query letters, she doesn't exactly have time to discover the next great bestseller—especially when a penniless aspiring author drops dead in the agency's waiting room.

No one else seems too concerned about the man’s demise, but when Lila uncovers a series of threatening letters, she's determined to uncover what—or who—killed the man’s dreams of literary stardom. . . .

Good weather for book-reading! This looks like an interesting one.

Beth: Yes, has certainly been the weather for indoor activities like reading. I split last weekend fairly evenly between that and watching DVDs.
