Today's Read: Posed for Murder by Meredith Cole


MizB at Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. Here's how it works: Grab your current read; let the book fall open to a random page; and share 2 “teaser” sentences from that page. For more teasers, click on through to MizB's blog.

She had never killed so many people in so many ways.

Lydia McKenzie stepped back and surveyed her work. Each corpse had been laid out gently and artistically, and if it weren't for their wounds or twisted limbs, they would look as if they were peacefully asleep. (p. 1)

Good teaser and that is from page 1 sounds as though you are going to have a good read there.

OOh, macabre! This is an excellent teaser!

Oh wow. Super creepy! That reminds me of a book I just finished called Hideaway by Dean Koontz. The murderer doesn't let them look peacefully asleep though... Great teaser and thanks for stopping by!

A female serial murderer is an interesting twist...something you don't see in novels very often, and in real life even less than that.

Creepy start to the book!

caite 8/24/10, 7:35 AM

Right up my alley!

You don't often hear about female serial killers. Sounds like a great read!

Thanks for teasing my book today, Beth! I'm glad you liked the opening. And thanks to everyone who came by to comment today.

POSED FOR MURDER is my first book, and the series continues with DEAD IN THE WATER, which came out this year.

Although I'm wrapping up summer and getting ready to go back to school, I'm still trying to squeeze in some more reading. Thanks for the title!

I like that -- good and dark!

a little late but here's mine plus a giveaway of The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas, longlisted for the 2010 Booker prize.

I'm guessing she's not the medical examiner?
