Teaser Tuesday | BooksAndABeat.com

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB at Books And A Beat.

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!


My Teaser for this week is from

Putting On The Witch

A Retired Witches Mystery #3

by Jim and Joyce Lavene



Genre: Paranormal Cozy Mystery

My teaser from page 103 in the paperback.

We knocked on the adjoining door between our rooms. There was no response.

“Sounds like they could be dead in there,” Elsie said, pressing her ear to the door.

“That heavy breathing sounds like they’re alive,” I whispered.

“Which one?” Elsie asked. “I don’t want to know what’s going on in there.”

I grinned and nudged her with my elbow. “It hasn’t been that long. I think you know what’s probably going on.”

Sorry this is more than two sentences but this is such a wickedly cute scene. I could just see them, leaning in to listen, and then giggling when they realize what’s going on in there. What do you think is happening?


For those who don’t know, within the past year we’ve lost both Joyce and Jim Lavene and I, for one, sorely miss them. I’ve enjoyed so many books in all their different series and am thrilled to be sharing my review on October 12th. Please be sure to drop by. And there’s a wonderful giveaway.

This is my first physical copy of any of their books and will surely be treasured!

Read on if you want to know more.


With their coven’s spell book still missing, Molly and Elsie—along with their ghostly friend Olivia, her daughter Dorothy, and her boyfriend Brian—are all on edge, especially now that Dorothy’s infamously wicked father is back in the picture. So when they receive an invitation to an exclusive Witches Ball, the ladies jump at the chance to dress up and have some fun.

The castle locale is spectacular and the party is hopping, but the festivities come to a swift end when a member of the Grand Council of Witches is murdered. With the whole place on lock down, the coven is determined to find the cunning killer, even with an angry council and a real Spanish Inquisitor breathing down their necks…


Other books in the series.

Clicking on any of the covers will take you to Amazon.

    This one sounds great fun – you’re right, you can only too clearly imagine them listening in and hearing more than they initially bargained for:). Thank you for sharing. This is my TT this week – https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2016/10/04/teaser-tuesday-4th-october-2016/

    Sounds like a cute story. I have a few of their books on my TBR mountain but nothing from this series. My teaser this week comes from the latest Otherworld anthology – Otherworld Chills by Kelley Armstrong. Happy reading!

  6. I have never read any of there cozies but they always looked so fun, it’s so sad that they are both gone now. :( Love that teaser! :)

  7. mysm2000 says:

    I’m going to have to check out these books. Sorry to discover them only after the deaths of the authors.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I hope you do try their stories. They sure have a bunch and I’ll read every single one. It still tears at me that they’re gone.

  8. Alice Audrey says:

    Your teaser makes me want to giggle too.
