Favorite Mugavero Bits!

A Biscuit, A casket.inddTo continue celebrating Liz Mugavero‘s book birthday, today we’re contributing bits from her books that we particularly liked.

Edith: I haven’t read A Biscuit, a Casket yet, so mine will come from Kneading to Die.

Diane looked at Stan. Her face was pale, her eyes black. She took in the dogs and their captives. Stan’s torn suit, her bare feet and bloody hand. She slumped back and shook her head, wincing. “You get here and this town goes straight to hell,” she muttered.

Can’t wait to read the new one!

Barb: Like Edith, I’m eagerly awaiting my copy of A Biscuit, a Casket. So here’s a favorite bit from Kneading to Die.

He answered on the second ring. She pictured him sleeping with the phone next to him…..

“Hey.” Her voice came out hoarse and gravelly. She cleared her throat and started over. “It’s Stan.”

“Hey Stan. I was just about to call you. I can’t find Duncan. Is he over there with you again?”

“That’s why I’m calling. Can you come over right away?”

Sherry: I’m thrilled to have my copy of A Biscuit, A Casket. I always love going to  bookstores and seeing my friends’ books on the shelves! I don’t think an opening line get much better than this:

The chainsaw appeared out of nowhere, it’s wide arc narrowly missing Stan Conner’s head.

Jessie: Mine’s from A Biscuit, A Casket too. I just loved this look at devoted dog owner:

Nancy beamed. “Wonderful. Let’s do it before Nyla gets here.” She wrinkled her nose.

“Nyla?” Stan asked.

“The poodle from down the road. She competes with Benny for everything.” Nancy rolled her eyes. “I heard she’s dressing up like a mermaid.”
