To help get you in the Halloween mood (it's just a month away), this week, I'm featuring Masking for Trouble by Diane Vallere, the second in her costume shop series. And yes, it has a Halloween theme, as you can tell from the cover.
I should finish this up today. It's wonderful! The book officially comes out on Tuesday, October 4th, and I will have a review and giveaway up next Friday, October 7th.
And here's how the book opens:
The last time I had been this close to an angry lab rat had been in high school.
I am really growing to appreciate Diane's way with first lines. Isn't that one fabulous?
Jumping ahead to page 56, I found this gem:
"Ms. Tamblyn, I want to be very clear about one thing. A man is dead, and your actions appear suspicious. If you are hiding something, I will find out."
You know, that's never something you want the police to say to you, even if you aren't hiding something.
Hope you have a fabulous weekend. I'm hoping for some time to go for a run and work on things for the blog. That's after I go to Hallmark, of course. This is debut weekend. Got to check out the new ornaments and buy some of them!
