We're starting something new here at Killer Crafts & Crafty Killers on Sundays. Along with announcing the winners when we have giveaways, we'll occasionally be participating in Six Sentence Sunday -- a teaser of six sentences from either those humorous amateur sleuth books about moi (see sidebar) written by author Lois Winston, or one of her other books, not about moi. Yes, much to my dismay, she does spend time with other protagonists, the two-timer!  :-(

Today, six sentences from Death By Killer Mop Doll, the latest Anastasia Pollack Crafting Mystery:

So after tossing in a load of wash, I microwaved a cup of coffee left over from breakfast. I was about to take my second sip when Zack’s silver Porsche Boxster rolled down the driveway.

He waved as he killed the engine and jumped out. Returning the wave, I watched -- no, I stared like a star-struck teeny-bopper at a Justin Bieber concert -- as he retrieved his overnight bag and camera case from the trunk. Where is the justice? No man, especially one in his mid-forties, has the right to look that damn good in a pair of jeans.

Death By Killer Mop Doll is available from all the usual suspects. Buy links can be found on Lois's website.
