Murder at Morningside by Sandra Bretting Spotlight and Book Giveaway

Murder at Morningside

Excerpt:

Time rewound with each footfall as I began to climb the grand outer staircase at Morningside Plantation. The limestone steps, burdened with the history of five generations, heaved their way toward heaven.

At the top lay a wide-plank verandah supported by columns painted pure white, like the clouds. By the time I took a third step, the digital camera in my right hand began to dissolve into the sterling silver handle of a ladies parasol. The visitors’ guide in my left hand magically transformed into a ballroom dance card bound by a satin cord.

Another step and the Mississippi River came into view as it flowed to the Gulf, languid as a waltz and the color of sweet tea. Could that be a whistle from a steamboat ferrying passengers past the plantation? If so, a turn and a wave wouldn’t be out of the question once I reached the top of the stairs, and good manners would dictate it.

I was about to do that when I realized the whistle was only my friend’s cell and not a Mississippi riverboat. “Ambrose! Turn that thing off. Honestly.”

“Sorry.” He shrugged. “I always forget you were Scarlett O’Hara in a past life.”

The mood was broken, though, and the sterling silver in my hand returned to plastic while the linen dance card hardened to a glossy brochure.

  1. Hello! I entered the contest by giving my email on the form but I’m not sure if I did it correctly… Maybe this is where I’m supposed to leave my hat recommendation… So here goes! I would ask for a hat with a candy theme. I’m sure it wouldn’t be tacky with candy wrappers, etc but more likely it would have perfectly placed sweets and treats. It would be so beautiful I would worry I might mess it up by wearing it! Thanks for the chance to get my hands on this great start to a new series! Thanks for sharing today Sandra!
