Teaser Tuesday 41: Cut to the Corpse

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab a current 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!

I read this book in MAY. This is book two in the Decoupage Mystery series.

She hunkered down beside the bed, and using both hands pushed his shoulder up and over... With a grunt, she gave him a shove and he flopped over.

(pg 46)

"That's it?" she asked. "You bartered dinner for that? That's not even worth a Hot Pocket on the T into Boston."

(pg 159)

Cut to the Corpse by Lucy Lawrence
Genre: Cozy Mystery

A sticky situation in the second Decoupage mystery.

Decoupage teacher Brenna Miller is in over her head when she finds bride-to-be Tara with her fiancé's dead best friend-and Tara holding the murder weapon. It's up to Brenna to get to the truth before Tara's future turns to shreds.

OK, that second teaser made me laugh. It sounds like a fun book.

Sounds like a nice little series. I haven't heard of this one, I may have to check it out.

I love the title on this one, and the Hot Pocket line.

Jennifer said...

Fun teasers, the series looks like it is good. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/06/teaser-tuesdays-unspeakable.html

I like the title. Cozy mysteries are such fun, I may have to go pick this one up.

Heather said...

Andrea: Thank you, it was indeed a fun, fast read!

Kaye: Gasp! Cozy Queen that you are, you have not heard of this one? The first book, Stuck on Murder was out last year, and I'm already looking forward to book three.

Alice: Thank you, lol. BTW, this series has a bit of a love triangle, just in case you're wondering. ;)

Jennifer: Thank you, it is indeed a fun series.

NotNessie: I also like the title. I must say, one of the things I love about the Berkely Prime Crime books is their often clever titles.
