Book Beginnings on Fridays/The Friday 56 - September 18th

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 posted some of this on Tuesday, but since I'm still reading it, I figured I would post more for my Friday post.  The excerpts are from the E-ARC.


"Dead?" Rebecca asked. 

 I sighed. "I'm sorry. Yes." 

 "That's what I was afraid of." 

She looked glum, which was surprising because Rebecca was a very positive person in general, and the dead thing we were looking at was a glass bowl filled with an inactive sourdough starter.

From 56% on my Kindle...

Charles grinned and patted his ample midsection.  "The only time I run is for free donuts."

Synopsis from Goodreads:

A reality TV crew has come to town and brought librarian Kathleen Paulson and her two magical cats more than their fair share of real-life drama, in the newest installment of this New York Times bestselling series. 

Spring has come to charming Mayville Heights, and with it, some Hollywood glamour. The little town is abuzz because the reboot of a popular baking TV show is filming there. Librarian Kathleen Paulson is working as an advisor on historical facts for the show, local restaurants are providing catering for the camera crews, and Kathleen's faithful felines, Hercules and Owen, are hoping there is a cat treat challenge. 

 But then Kathleen finds one of the judges dead. She has solved many-a-murder with help from the supernaturally gifted Herc and Owen, and with the whole town on tenterhooks, the talented trio will have to have all paws on deck to chase down this killer.

What do you think?  What are you sharing today?


  1. It wasn’t expecting the dead thing to be a sourdough starter!

  2. A sourdough starter... ah yes - they die way too easily.
