Teaser Tuesday - "Poisoned Tarts"

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Here are my teasers for today:

"She wouldn't be the first wife to put an end to a cheating husband's philandering in a violent way. Although a stake through the heart was a pretty strong statement, even for a scorned woman, Savannah couldn't imagine a big hunky guy like Dante just sitting calmly by and allowing a woman half his size to drive a wooden spike into his chest."
pg. 184, Poisoned Tarts, G.A. McKevett.

This is a new author for me. It's also noted as "A Savannah Reid mystery", one of a series involving former policed detective turned P.I., Savannah Reid. I haven't figured out the connection of the title to the story yet, the "tarts" haven't put in an appearance at this point and I'm better than halfway through. This is not one of my normal culinary mysteries although it appears all of Ms. Mckevett's titles have food involved in some way.

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your 2 ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!
