Can't Wait Wednesday (127) A Little Bit Cozy

Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings to spotlight highly anticipated books.  It is based on the Waiting on Wednesday meme which used to be hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.







FROM GOODREADS: There's no reverse on the hearse . . .

For Tallulah Graver, marrying wealthy Waldo Phillips seemed like the best way out of the family business, the Graver Funeral Home. But when her marriage falls apart and Tallie is left with next to nothing, she turns to cleaning houses to make ends meet. As humbling as it is to tidy the mansions of the snobby socialites she used to call friends, at least she doesn't have to be around dead bodies. Until . . .
She discovers one of her employers lying in a closet with a knife sticking out of her chest. This unpleasant shock seems to be part of a web of weird experiences: Tallie's friend Gina's shop is broken into, her ex is stun-gunned where it hurts the most, and now she's receiving flowers from the dead woman. Granted the deliveryman is handsome, but seriously, that's enough to cast a pall over anyone's day. Now Tallie needs to dig deep to clean up this mess--before she finds herself in a grave situation.
 

WHY I CAN'T WAIT:  I think this is a perfect cozy mystery for this time of year and it even releases on Halloween Day.  What could be better???

What book can't you wait for this week???

  23. This does sound like the perfect cozy mystery for this time of year. A bit on the creepy side for me, though, lol. In my last read -- "Beautiful Creatures" -- there was a hearse, and I didn't like that AT ALL.

    Hope you enjoy this one!! Thanks for always stopping by to leave such lovely comments on my CWW post!! HUGS TO YOU & THE BOYS!! WOOF, WOOF to them, as well!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)
