This week, I'll be pulling quotes from Drizzled with Death by Jessie Crockett. Yes, a maple syrup themed cozy mystery series. Just when I think they've found all the topics they can cover, they pull out a few more.
And here is how the book begins:
I knew as soon as I lied to my mother, the night would turn out badly.
And jumping ahead to page 56, we find:
I was a bit worried about my leisure time in the upcoming summer. What if by some miracle Piper managed to net the kangaroo with [the hammock] and the kangaroo struggled free, tearing a huge hole right through the side?
Yes, you did read that right, a kangaroo. It's part of a subplot that brings a lot of great humor to the book.
I actually finished the book on Wednesday, and my review is right here if you want to read more about the book.
