Teaser Tuesday – March 7, 2023 #NewBook #YouShouldHaveKnown @keller_reb @crookedlanebks @penguinrandom #TeaserTuesday #TuesdayBookBlog

My Tuesday post where I’ll ‘tease‘ you with the cover, blurb, and first paragraph of one of the titles from my own TBR.

This book is a title I received from Crooked Lane Books/Penguin Random House via
NetGalley and I’ll be reading it soon.

Today, Tuesday March 7, 2023 I want to introduce one of the ARCs on my TBR.

This novel will be published on April 4, 2023

“A grieving grandmother turns to murder in Rebecca Keller’s taut debut mystery that explores the bonds of family and the grudges we refuse to let go.”
Publisher: Crooked Lane BooksISBN: 9781639102600 –  ASIN: B0B5Z1R68X –  320 pages

1)  The fact that the protagonist is a ‘senior’.

2)  Amateur sleuth stories always appeal to me.

3) I’m always eager to read debut novels.

“I scanned the medications on the cart: pills sorted into tiny cups made of pleated paper, sitting atop smudgy laminated cards, each marked with a name and apartment number. The cards took me back to my hospital days, reminding me of surgical drapes framing the place to cut. A few medicines were set apart in smooth plastic containers the color of swimming pools: Oxycontin, Vicodin, Hydrocodone, Tramadol. Powerful. Dangerous. Able to suppress respiration. Like morphine. Named after Morpheus, the god of dreams.”

Is this a title that you would consider adding to your TBR pile?

Why, or why not?

Let me know in the comments.
