Teaser Tuesday 355: Writing All Wrongs

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!

My teaser for this week comes from Writing All Wrongs by Ellery Adams, which is set during an autumn festival on a fictional North Carolina island.

Haviland sniffed at a dozen different scents and didn’t seem too interested in any of them until he suddenly let out a sharp bark of alarm. Farther along the beach, Olivia spotted a figure lying in the sand.

(Chapter 7)

Series: Books by the Bay #7

After Olivia and Chief Rawlings enjoy a brief honeymoon on Palmetto Island, they’re joined by the rest of the Bayside Book Writers for the Legends of Coastal Carolina Festival. The festival’s highlight is Silas Black, celebrity screenwriter and TV producer, who is currently working on a popular show in North Carolina.

As the Festival gets under way, a trickster seems to be bringing famous local ghost stories to life. But when the body of a woman close to Black is found on the beach, Olivia and her friends must deduce who on the island could resort to murder—before the sands of time run out for someone else . . .
