LOOK BOTH WAYS by Carol J. Perry

"Maralee, come here.  You won't believe this!" 
I hurried from my sparsely furnished bedroom to the kitchen, where Aunt Ibby sat on an unpainted and slightly wobbly wood stool.  She pointed to the new TV, which was propped against a carton of books on the granite countertop. 
"Look," she said.  "It's exactly the same, isn't it?"

Daphne followed, looking absolutely gorgeous.  She wore the mink coat and carried the stole, a large box of chocolates, and an armful of movie magazines.  She walked around the blue chair without enthusiasm and gave a pretty shrug.  "It's all right."

I am currently reading this book for a tour that starts next Friday, so you're all invited back for the review.  There will also be a Rafflecopter giveaway during the tour.  The tour is being run by Lori at Escape With Dollycas.  Hope to see you there!

So, what do you think?  Sounds like Maralee and Daphne come from different worlds, doesn't it?


  1. Oh, that cover is precious. I'm wondering now about what looks the same. A new cozy author for me, yeah!

    My 56 -

  2. Daphne sounds lovely, but sounds does the story in general.
    Happy weekend!

  3. Ooo - great choices on the teasers. And I love the cover too - I'm a sucker for cute kitties. I can't wait to read the review!
