This week, I'm pulling some quotes from Death of a Bachelorette by Laura Levine.
This is one of my favorite series. I always have a blast laughing my way through Jaine's mysteries.
Here's the prologue of the book:
I swear, it was a miracle. Okay, maybe not as big as the parting of the Red Sea. Or Daniel surviving that lion's den. Or how M&M's melt in your mouth, not in your hand.
But a miracle nonetheless.
And, as a bonus, here's the first line of Chapter 1:
It took about nine hours to fly from L.A. to Tahiti - nine of the most harrowing hours of my life.
Jumping ahead to page 56, we find a fun exchange. To set it up, Jaine has discovered that her cat, Prozac, has escaped from their room. She's hoping that the maid, Akela, might have some idea why.
"Wait, Akela!" I called after her. "You didn't happen to come to my room earlier, did you?"
Maybe she'd stopped by and inadvertently left the door open, clearing the way for Prozac's escape.
"No! No! I no go in room. No kitty. No kitty!" she cried, careening down the steps.
That woman really ought to do something about her fear of cats, I thought, as I headed to my room.
My full review will be up on Tuesday. I hope you'll come back and read my review then.
