Book Beginnings on Fridays/The Friday 56 - June 26th

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'm hoping to read this one soon. I loved the first one in the series.


Tally Holt had been hoping he wouldn't show up today.

While Tally was talking, pacing the floor as she heard the news she didn't want to hear, Yolanda burst into Tally's office from the kitchen of Tally's shop.

"Who was that on the phone?" asked Yolanda Bella, Tally's best friend.

From 56% on my Kindle...

All through the day at work, Tally tried not to look at her employees suspiciously, but it was hard. She was suspicious.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

In a darling tourist town like Fredericksburg, Texas, a vintage sweet shop offering delicious old-fashioned favorites is a perfect fit—until someone decides to debut a recipe that’s lusciously lethal…

With Tally’s Old Tyme Sweets finally—well, almost—turning a profit, Tally Holt is taking one busy Saturday off to host a grand party for her parents, traveling performers who spend most of their time on the road. Tally’s counting on the publicity and free treats to attract new customers. And the event is a sweet success—at least until Fran Abraham, the town’s foul-tempered theater director, drops dead after a bitter confrontation with Tally’s mother.

Murder was definitely not on Tally’s menu, but it’s clear that Fran’s death wasn’t natural. The list of possible culprits includes not just Tally’s mom, but her protective dad too. Relying on Yolanda Bella, her best friend and the proprietor of Bella’s Baskets next door, for help, Tally will need to unwrap the sticky pasts and unsavory presents of everyone from her own parents to her new hires before Fran’s death sours everybody on her fledgling shop….


  1. Sounds like a good one, for sure! Happy weekend!

  2. Cozy mysteries are fun! I love the ones set in destination towns and the ones with food themes. So this one sounds perfect!

  3. That looks good and I love the cover.

  4. I love the premise of this book plus what a cute cover.

  5. That's a cute cover. I would imagine it's stressful being suspicious of your employees.

    Have a good weekend!
