Teaser Tuesday (August 21)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
"An identification card that made her—what? An over-age Nancy Drew? An underage Jessica Fletcher? A  clueless Stephanie Plum?" (Dying to Read by Lorena McCourtney, page 5)

All she wanted was a paycheck.
What she got was a murder.

Cate Kinkaid's life is...well, frankly it's floundering. Her social life, her career, her haircut—they're all a mess. Unemployed, she jumps at the chance to work for her PI uncle, even though she has no experience and no instincts. After all, she is just dabbling in the world of private investigating until she can find a "real" job.

All she has to do for her first assignment is determine that a particular woman lives at a particular address. Simple, right? But when she reaches the dark Victorian house, she runs into an hungry horde of gray-haired mystery readers and a dead body. This routine PI job is turning out to be anything but simple. Is Cate in over her head?

  2. Sounds very interesting. Another one for my ever-growing wish list. :)

  3. This sounds really interesting!

    1. Here: Sing by Lisa Bergren
      "The tall, gaunt man held his hat in his hands...She hoped he was right."

  4. Sounds a lot like the Stephanie Plum series! But hopefully with fewer f-bombs.
