Book Beginnings and Friday 56 for May 31

Closing out the month today, and it's Friday!  That means it is time for Book Beginnings and Friday 56.

This week, I've been reading Murder for Choir by Joelle Charbonneau.  I've been enjoying it, and expect to finish it today at lunch time.  Come back this evening for my review.

Anyway, the book starts off with this line:

If Dante ever added a tenth circle of hell, this would be it.

And on page 56 we find:

I hoped my friends wouldn't spill my secrets to strangers or would at least hold out for a decent bribe.  Performers were always short on cash.  I wouldn't blame them for wanting to pay the rent.

So you can see why I'm enjoying this one.  Can't wait to see how it ends.

    1. It's more subtle humor, but the humor is in there.

    1. Yeah, I'm not sure how trust worthy they'd wind up being either.

      Thanks!
