Book Beginnings on Fridays/The Friday 56 - April 22nd

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 got this freebie from Amazon.  It looks like my kind of book.  I hope to read it soon.

First Chapter

"The practical thing to do is turn over the remaining felines to another rescue or to the new animal shelter in town."  As I'd said the words, I glanced up toward the heavens hoping my late Aunt Ginger couldn't hear them from her perch on a cloud.

From 56% on my Kindle...

"Did you see anyone suspicious come by here?" I asked.

"Just you," he said, gesturing at me with the cigarette.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Loretta Hamilton has never owned one cat, let alone seven.

When cat-loving Aunt Ginger passes away, Loretta is left with a farm she doesn’t want. And as if that’s not bad enough, her aunt’s dying wish is for Loretta to turn her home into a cat rescue sanctuary. Loretta doesn’t even know what to feed her aunt’s seven orphaned cats, let alone how to rescue them.

But Felicity, a pushy real estate agent, has plans of her own. She wants the farm for a land development project, and she won’t take no for an answer. After a heated exchange between Loretta and Felicity at a town hall meeting, Felicity is found dead making Loretta the main suspect.

With a superstitious sidekick and a knack for being practical, can Loretta settle into her new role as cat mom and protector while fending off a murderer?
