This week I've started my third and final Halloween book for the year, A Biscuit, a Casket by Liz Mugavero.
This is the second in her Pawsitively Organic Mystery series, and I'm enjoying it much more than the first. The first was setting things in motion, but with that background laid, it's much easier to dive in and enjoy the characters and story this time around.
And it has a killer opening:
The chain saw appeared out of nowhere, its wide arc narrowly missing the top of Stan Connor's head.
See what I mean?
And this is a tantalizing potential clue from page 56:
Stan thought about that. A family heirloom as the weapon. Was that symbolic or coincidental?
I'm not quite half way through myself, so even I don't know the answer to that question yet.
