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.

It's that simple.

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

I figured this is a timely read.

First Chapter

Dear Diary,

I could never have predicted the craziness of the past week.  It was supposed to be a white Christmas.  A fun Christmas.  One full of gifts and family and dogs.  You know how much I adore dogs!

From 56% on my Kindle...

"I have to go.  Someone just egged my car."

"Be careful, Holly.  People are weird this time of year."

Synopsis from Amazon:

It’s going to be a very murder Christmas…

Holly loves the small town life in Full Fork, New York, especially since she gets to spend most of her time walking the adorable dogs of the town’s elite. Or hanging out at her best friend’s pet cafe. And the first day of Christmas is no exception to the routine.

Until she arrives at her first client’s home to pick up an adorable Dachshund named Dixie and finds a corpse instead. The owner has been murdered! And, as the last person who saw her, Holly’s got a bright red target on her back. She’s got to figure out whodunit before Christmas is ruined.
