April 4ths' Book Beginning and Friday 56

It's Friday, and you know what that means.  Yep, time for Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week, I'm reading Clammed Up by Barbara Ross.




This is the first in a mystery series that centers around a family owned clam bake company in Maine.  They host clam bakes as a tourist attraction during the summer.  Naturally, a murder has taken place right at the start to tourist season.

And here's how it begins:

She hadn't seemed like a Bridezilla.  Not in the least.  Most brides who would celebrate their wedding with a clambake on an island in Maine were pretty relaxed.

And from page 56:

"I think this murder will finally bankrupt the Snowden Family Clambake," I said.  "And the worst part is, there is not one thing I can do about it."

Is she right?  Will it bankrupts the business?  Can she do anything about it?  Honestly, I don't know myself yet, but even if I did, I wouldn't tell you.  You have to read the book yourself to find out.
