Teaser Tuesday: On the Level by David Edgar Cournoyer


House lust tended to make me blind to the faults of old buildings and Steve usually provided a much-needed reality check. My goal in this visit was to pump Steve for information about Joe's death, but I found myself focusing more and more on the old house.

-- On the Level: A Mystery of Suspense, Romance, and Home Improvement by David Edgar Cournoyer. I like the expression "house lust"! This passage is a hinge in the story between the mystery and the home improvement themes.

David Cournoyer sent me his new novel at the suggestion of mystery author Carolyn J. Rose because I am in the middle of remodeling the kitchen in our 100-year-old house.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event. 


  1. Even though I'm not renovating an old house, I'd enjoy this book. Sounds like an intriguing premise. You might like THE RENOVATED HEART too.
    My Teaser is from BLUEBONNET BRIDE.

  2. On the Level is fun. I recommend it.

    I'll go look for The Renovated Heart.

  3. Great teaser -- sounds like a fun read. I think I can relate a bit to house lust, lol.

    Here's my teaser from SUDDENLY ROYAL by Nichole Chase.

  4. In fairness author Daniel McGinn used the phrase House Lust before I did. It was the title for his 2008 book on the American obsession with homes. I loved the phrase (and his book). David
