November 22nd's Book Beginning and Friday 56

Well, it's that time of the week again.  Time for me to do Book Beginning and Friday 56 even though I should be in bed asleep right now.  What else is new, right?

This week's book is Secondhand Stiff by Sue Ann Jaffarian.  She's a favorite author of mine, and I've actually already finished and reviewed the book.  Want to know what I thought?  Here's my review.

Want a couple of teasers before you read the review?  Well, here's how the book begins:

"Harpy Bitch!" the woman in the bad bleach job shouted.

Jumping ahead to page 56, we find:

"Is your mother the nosy sort, like yourself?" she asked, not taking her eyes off of Mom.
"I don't know what you mean, Detective Fehring."

Really, go read the review.  Then read the book.  You'll thank me later.


  1. Not an author I am familiar with, but will check her out.

    Odd beginning. Starting off with someone yelling nasty things like that... makes you wonder what is going on.
    Have to wonder if she is the harpy bitch in the 56, or her mom... LOL

    Happy weekend!

    1. It was an attention getting opening, even for someone familiar with the series.

  2. Very attention-getting.

    THANKS for sharing.

    Enjoy your weekend.
