Teaser Tuesday



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading
and asks you to :
1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3. Share 2 "teaser"sentences also citing the title of the book and the author and in that way people can have great recommendations if they like the "teaser.
4. Please avoid spoilers!

This week's teaser is taken from Cut, Crop & Die by Joanna Campbell Slan, a new scrapbooking mystery featuring Kiki Lowenstein that will be released on June 2nd. Review will be posted tomorrow. Guest post and contest for 2 books will be posted June 11th. Mark your calendars.

"I got them this time. Fixed their little wagons good. Did you know that moles have three to five pups a litter? And they don't really dig? They sort of swim through the dirt? Their front paws scrape at the soil. The back legs push it like a back-stroker moves water. "

In my best imitation of Butterfly McQueen, I said, "Golly, Miss Sheila, I don't know nuttin' bout birthin' no moles, and that's the truth."
What fun, exciting or interesting teaser did you come across this week?

  1. That's so funny. Must take place in the rural south somewhere? Atmosphere so far from scrapbooking! Good teaser!

  4. LOL that is a funny one. I suppose with the popularity of scrap booking it was only a matter of time till a cosy mystery came out around it.

    My teaser is here. Have a great week.

  11. How funny! I don't usually hear moles talked about in mysteries.

    I skipped Teaser Tuesday today to show the damage to our yard that could have been done by giant moles, but was really done by us: http://www.texasredbooks.com/2009/05/yard-work-or-giant-moles.html

  16. I love the idea of a "scrapbooking mystery." That would go very nicely with the "home renovation mystery" I discovered at a library today. I guess you can write a mystery centred around any theme, can't you?

    Great teaser!
