November 15th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

I'm always so happy to make this post because that means it is Friday!!!!  And that means it is time for this week's Book Beginning and Friday 56.



Just today, I finished Stone Cold Dead by Catherine Dilts.  For some reason, I was thinking the book came out in December, but it really comes out in January.  Anyway, I got it via an ARC.  I really enjoyed the characters in this one and found them pulling me back to the book.  But I'll have my full review up next week.

In the mean time, here's how the book begins:

When Morgan Iverson pushed open the rock shop door, a cowbell clanged loud enough to raise the dead.  There were plenty of candidates for resurrection in the shop, starting with the massive T. Rex skull.

And jumping a head to page 56, we find:

When Kendall told Morgan he was leaving his computer, she'd made the wild assumption that the rock shop was up to speed with technology.  Morgan wasn't sure she could survive the next week and a half without the Internet.

I know just how she feels.
