Teaser Tuesday: The Chocolate Snowman Murders by JoAnna Carl

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 The Chocolate Snowman Murders by JoAnna Carl

"Lee, I'm going to ask you to do something that you're not going to want to do; something you're going to think is immoral, and that I know is illegal."

"You don't want me to put preservatives in the chocolate, do you?"

"Good heavens, no! I'd never do that."

Yes, yes, I know this is against the "rules". Rant if you must, but 2 sentences is not enough and honestly this is not a spoiler by any stretch of the imagination.

Disclosure: A copy of this book was borrowed from the county library system. Thanks to our tax dollars!

  9. Funny!

    I had a t-shirt once that had a snowman on it and a saying that went something like this:
    Snowman
    he's cool,
    he's well rounded
    and he actually knows how to use a broom!

    Here's mine.

  25. That sounds like fun! A mystery by people who respect their chocolate.

    (And I know that occasionally you need the extra sentence - I just get annoyed with the folks who routinely post 5 or 6 sentences. What can I say - I'm a stickler!)

    My teaser is here.
