Then give us the title of the book, so others can add it to their lists!
Today, I’m excerpting from a book from next week’s stack.
First in a new mystery series that will have readers stitching-and itching for more
When Marcy Singer opens an embroidery specialty shop in quaint Tallulah Falls, Oregon, she throws a soiree and a Stitch-In. Soon, Marcy’s sign- up sheet for embroidery classes fills up and everyone in town seems willing to raise a glass-or a needle-to support the newly-opened Seven Year Stitch.
Then Marcy finds the shop’s previous tenant dead in the store-room, a message scratched with a tapestry needle on the wall beside him. Now Marcy’s shop has become a crime scene, and she’s the prime suspect. She’ll have to find the killer before someone puts a final stitch in her.
Beginning: Just after crossing over…under…through…the covered bridge, I could see it. Barely. I could make out the top of it, and that was enough at the moment to make me set aside the troubling grammatical conundrum of whether one passes over, under, or through a covered bridge.
Hmm, now I’m intrigued! I wonder what the narrator is seeing, so naturally I’m going to keep reading.
P. 56: Vera smiled. “I’m sorry for what happened to Timothy, of course, but I’ve been looking forward to this class.”
Now I’m eager to hop around the blogosphere to see the snippets you’ve all shared!
