Teaser Tuesday: Killing Trail by Margaret Mizushima

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

After passing through the exam room, Cole found the deputy waiting in the lobby with the dog sitting quietly at her feet, a stoic expression on its face. The woman was bent forward, scratching the dog behind its ears.
This week my teaser comes from Killing Trail by Margaret Mizushima. I got this book to review from Crooked Lane Press. Here is the description from Amazon:
When a young girl is found dead in the mountains outside Timber Creek, life-long resident Officer Mattie Cobb and her partner, K-9 police dog Robo, are assigned to the case that has rocked the small Colorado town.

With the help of Cole Walker, local veterinarian and a single father, Mattie and Robo must track down the truth before it claims another victim. But the more Mattie investigates, the more she realizes how many secrets her hometown holds. And the key may be Cole's daughter, who knows more than she's saying.

The murder was just the beginning, and if Mattie isn’t careful, she and Robo could be next. Suspenseful and smart, Killing Trail is an explosive debut that will have readers clamoring for more Mattie and Robo for years to come.

  4. Colorado is one of my favorite places, and books that involve dogs are among my favorite stories. So this is definitely a book I'd enjoy.
    My Tuesday post features THE JOURNEY BACK – A Doublesight Story.

  5. I'm definitely going to look into this series. Thanks for the heads-up. I read several dog series, but hadn't discovered one with a K-9.

    Thanks for stopping by mine for The Octopus at http://wp.me/pZnGI-sc

  7. But dogs often look stoic when they are enjoying themselves. You know because they whine when you stop.

  9. Love the dog reference. Just hope it's not the dog who gets hurt or comes up missing... lol

  10. Great teaser! Sounds like a good book.

  11. Sounds great. Like the setting and that the hero is named Cole!

  12. The teaser sentences themselves don't grab me in any way, but I might be able to get down with the premise.

  13. Dogs? I like dogs, this sounds right up my alley(: Although it doesn't sound light, like The Cat Who mysteries.

  14. Sounds like a good mystery. Hope you're enjoying it!
