January 24's Book Beginning and Friday 56

It's Friday.  And you don't know how happy that makes me.  So let's kick it off with Book Beginning and Friday 56 for the week, shall we?

This week, I'm reading Lost and Fondue by Avery Aames.



And here's how the book starts:

"The Ziegler Winery will be the perfect site, Charlotte. So historic!" Meredith, my best friend since grade school, twirled in the middle of The Cheese Shop, arms spread wide, the flaps of her red raincoat fluting outward.

Jumping ahead to page 56, we find:

Wolford, who stood beneath the arch leading to the dining room, said, "Is the treasure real?"

I'm about half way through the book, and I'm enjoying it so far.  Hoping to get the book finished this weekend and a review up early next week.

    1. You need to get out of your comfort zone to read this comfy series? ;)

      Seriously, this is my comfort zone. I wouldn't mind getting out of it, but there are so many books here in my zone I want to read it makes it very hard.

  3. Oh now I want fondue for lunch! I love food themed mysteries (yes I know that sounds strange). Off to get some lunch and await your review.

    1. I love food themed mysteries, too. I read lots of them mixed in with other cozies.

      My review should be up Monday, probably late. We'll see how it goes.

      Hope you enjoyed lunch.

  4. I like the image of the twirling red raincoat in the opening. This book sounds like a fun escape. My kind of story!

  5. Fondue and treasure? I think I'll like this book. And I've always wanted a red raincoat, it just seems like the perfect colour for a raincoat! Here's my Friday post and I hope you have a good weekend :)

    1. The main character keeps saying the treasure isn't real. Still don't know if she's right or not. But the fondue sounds good, and there are recipes in the back....

    Happy weekend!

    1. Serving fondue at a fundraiser and some fondue recipes in the back. Almost makes me want to try to make my own.
