This week's book is Puzzled Indemnity by Parnell Hall.
This is the fourteenth book in the Puzzle Lady series, which centers around Cora, the famous Puzzle Lady, and the murders she gets involved with that seem to include crossword puzzles, Sudokus, and occasionally, other types of puzzles.
So, let's get to how this particular book begins.
Cora Felton looked out the window and proclaimed, "I hate winter."
"That's nothing new," Sherry Carter said. "You also hate spring, summer, and fall. They're too hot, too wet, too windy, as I recall. Though not in that order."
And jumping ahead of page 56, we get this bit.
Crowley's office was just as Cora had remembered it. Bare walls, cluttered desk, no place to sit unless you were a perp. Cora had been a perp the first time she was there, so she knew the routine. She sat on the metal folding chair, tried to look innocent. It had been easier when she was actually guilty.
Intrigued? You're in luck. My review is posted.
