Teaser Tuesday ~ A Crafty Killing ~ 1/24/17

My teaser for this week is from:

8277734
 
 
~"Ezra Hilton lay sprawled at the bottom step of the staircase, facedown in a puddle of his own congealed blood.  He'd probably broken his long, proud nose when he hit Artisans Alley's carpet-covered concrete floor, Katie Bonner decided.  She wondered if McKinlay Mill's funeral director could make Ezra look presentable for a viewing. "

  3. Sounds like a cozy mystery. I'm in. Here's my link for this week — far from cozy, I'm afraid: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-1t1

  5. I love cozy mysteries. I'm actually reading a few mysteries right now. I just finished Hex on the Beach and next up is Spying in High Heels. They are a lot of fun and I always love the catchy titles. Enjoy your reading!

  7. Certainly an interesting caption. I wonder if the rest of the book is as humorous. I may just have to have a look into this one.

  14. You can read a lot into that opening. I like how the author doesn't say the man is dead directly.

  18. Writers of murder mysteries are told to get to the murder right away. This author sure did that with her opening! I'm wondering if the fall was due to natural causes (probably not!) and can't help but wonder why Katie Bonner seems so detached about the death. LOVE the book's cover. Seems like all cozies must have a cat somewhere!
    My Friday post features The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
