Book Beginnings: Corpse on the Cob

Time for this week's Book Beginnings.  This week, I'm reading Corpse on the Cob by Sue Ann Jaffarian.  The first two sentences are:

The dead guy on the ground did not look familiar.  The woman crouched over the body did.

Now I know I'm cheating again and including the first paragraph.  While that first sentence is good, it gets so much better with the second sentence, especially when you learn that the woman is main character Odelia Grey's long lost mother.

Good beginning!

I hope that there was nothing to suspicious about the death!

It's a murder mystery, so there is plenty suspicious about the death.
