My Teaser for this week is from

 Dumpster Dying

Big Lake Murder Mystery #1

by Lesley A. Diehl



Genre: Cozy Mystery

 My teaser from page 80 in the paperback.

“Us. I said ‘us’ and I think you misinterpreted what I meant.”

“How could I? It’s a simple enough word. It means you and me.”


Read on if you want to know more.


Emily Rhodes came to rural Florida for the cowboys, the cattle, and to do a little country two-step, not to fall head first onto a dead body in a dumpster. Ah, the golden years of retirement in the sunshine state. They’re more like pot metal to Emily, who discovers the body of the county’s wealthiest rancher in the Big Lake Country Club dumpster. With her close friend accused of the murder, Emily sets aside her grief at her life partner’s death to find the real killer. She underestimates the obstacles rural Florida can set up for a winter visitor and runs afoul of a local judge with his own version of justice, hires a lawyer who works out of a retirement home, and flees wild fires hand-in-hand with the man she believes to be the killer.



How about you? Got a tease? Tell me!

    It sounds like there is plenty of snark in amongst the murder and mayhem on this one:). Mine this week is a far future murder mystery – https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2017/04/18/teaser-tuesday-18th-april-2017/

  2. Oh, this definitely sounds good! A little “Lights Went out in Georgia” sounding.

  3. I loved this one, as well as other books by the author. The characters are like people I’ve known…with goals that are familiar to me. Thanks for sharing, and here’s mine: “THE WIDOW OF WALL STREET”

  4. Sounds like a cute one.

  5. I had to do a double take on the title before I saw it right. hehe! This one sounds good. Thank you for sharing!
    My teaser this week is: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

    That interpretation of ‘us’ seems quite logical to me, but one of these characters is not having it, it seems. Hope you enjoy this one.
