Excerpt from Bowled Over

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

I am currently reading Bowled Over, a cozy mystery by Victoria Hamilton. Protagonist Jaymie Leighton, a collector of vintage kitchenware and cookbooks finds herself entangled in a murder investigation—in fact, one of the prime suspects. So, of course, she’s poking her nose into everyone else’s business and stirring up trouble.

Jamie covertly examined Kathy’s face. It looked like she’d had a shock: she was drained of color, and was still staring at the tiny screen of the cell phone. It was useless to try to sort things out with her former friend while Kathy was so distracted.

Victoria Hamilton, Bowled Over

Vintage kitchenware and cookbook collector Jaymie Leighton has been estranged from her high school best friend Kathy Cooper since they were teenagers, but she never knew what turned Kathy against her. After fireworks at a Fourth of July picnic, Jaymie discovers the body of her former friend in the park. On the ground nearby is Jaymie’s own Depression-era glass bowl, broken in two.

With her fingerprints all over the bowl and a troubled history with the victim, Jaymie suddenly finds herself at the top of the list of suspects. Did the killer intend to frame her for the murder? If so, she is ready to mix it up, because solving crimes is vintage Jaymie Leighton…

  1. I’m obviously your reading opposite as while you’re not a fan of romances, cozy murder mysteries are really not my thing (although in fairness I’ve only read one or two so they may just have been bad) 🙂 I hope you enjoy though

  2. Never can get enough cozies. Cute cover and fun title too.
