Book Beginnings on Fridays/The Friday 56 - March 12th

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 start reading this one soon.  I've had it on my TBR forever.

First Chapter

October, 1974
Kansas City, Missouri

Max, his short grey tail wagging impossibly fast, met me at the door with a did-you-ask-the-butcher-for- a-bone expression on his expressive doggy face.  Of course, I had.

From 56% on my Kindle...

Aunt Sis was out cold.  She'd passed out in the bathroom.  

Synopsis from Goodreads:

When Ellison Russell is nearly killed at a benefactors' party, she brushes the incident aside as an unhappy accident. But when her house is fire-bombed, she's shot at, and the person sitting next to her at a gala is poisoned, she must face facts. Someone wants her dead. But why? And can Ellison find the killer before he strikes again? Add in an estranged sister, a visiting aunt with a shocking secret, and a handsome detective staying in her guesthouse, and Ellison might need more than cream in her coffee...
What do you think?  What are you sharing today?
