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 soon. I love this series and I've been wanting to get back to it.

First Chapter

"Charlie Harris, what are you doing hiding in the kitchen? Stiffen up that spine, young man, and get yourself in there where you're needed."

From 56% on my e-reader...

"Are you where you can talk?" I asked.

"No. Where are you? I can meet you." She sounded angry - not at me, I hoped.

"The archives. Come as soon as you can."

Synopsis from Goodreads...

Everyone in Athena, Mississippi, knows Charlie Harris, the librarian with a rescued Maine coon cat named Diesel. He's returned to his hometown to immerse himself in books, but when a feud erupts between the town's richest ladies, the writing on the wall spells murder.

The Ducote sisters are in a tiff with Vera Cassity over the location of this year's library fundraising gala, and Charlie would rather curl up in a corner than get into the fray. It seems everyone—even his housekeeper Azalea—has it in for Vera. And at the gala, she gives them good reason, with a public display of rancor aimed at anyone who gets in her way.

But those bitter words wind up being her last. When Charlie discovers Azalea standing over Vera's dead body, it's up to him—with a little help from Diesel—to clear Azalea's name, and catch a killer before his last chapter is finished.

  1. This looks like a very fun book. I just watched a very interesting show on Netflix called The Mind of the Cat. I've been appreciating felines more these days since watching it. My quotes come from THESE FEVERED DAYS

  2. That sounds like a good book. I like a book with books in. I love the cover too!

    Have a great weekend.

    It seems like a fun and easy read Yvonne, enjoy!
