Today's Read: To Have and to Kill By Mary Jane Clark

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.

This teaser is from the first book in a new Wedding Cake Mystery series; watch for the review in the next couple of weeks.

Potassium cyanide seemed to make the most sense. It was available and could be mixed to contaminate common drinking water. Internet reports were conflicted about what the taste would be like, primarily because the people who could be trusted to know were dead. p. 46
—From To Have and to Kill by Mary Jane Clark (HarperCollins / William Morrow, 2011).
