Book Beginnings on Fridays/The Friday 56 - January 10th

This is a fun meme to do hosted by Freda's Voice. If you'd like to join on the fun go to The Friday 56.

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Link it here.

It's that simple.

I'm also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It's hosted by Rose City Reader.

I'll be starting this one soon.


Bells jingled as I entered the Belgian Bean, a warm and cozy café filled with chatter and the aroma of freshly brewed coffee.  The place was surprisingly busy for a cool spring morning in Blueberry Cove, Maine.  Judging by the upscale outfits and unfamiliar faces, it appeared our coastal village was finally on the beaten track, even during the off-season.

From 56% on my e-reader...

"Never fun dealing with the cops.  Innocent or guilty."  His expression was placid, as though we were merely discussing the weather, but I sensed coiled tension under the calm.  "See the paper today?"


  1. I can't wait to start this one! I "thought" I had a copy here, but I can't find it. I hope you enjoy it!I'd love for you and your reading to check out mine. . . .

  2. I would love to go into that Belgian Bean Cafe...cozy is so appealing, just like a cozy mystery.

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. I like both snippets!! Sounds like a good one! Happy weekend!

  4. Oh, yes! I love the sound of this one.

    Thanks for joining in on another year of Book Beginnings!

  5. I would love to visit Maine someday. I haven't heard of this cozy, but, as you know, I like cozies. 😊 I will have to give this a try! Have a great weekend!

  6. It sounds so fun and I've not tried this author yet.
