September 19th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

I know I mentioned I started a new job 4 weeks ago.  So far, I'm really happy there, but there are a couple of crazy days during the month, and this month, those days fell on Thursday and Friday.  All that to offer an excuse for why I missed Book Beginning and Friday 56 last week.  But I'm back and ready to go.

This week's book is Do Or Diner by Christine Wenger.




I'm about half way into it, and so far I'm enjoying it.  But this isn't review time (that will be next week for this book).  Instead, let's get to some quotes.

Here's the first sentence:

What on earth did I do?

Now if that doesn't catch you attention, I don't know what will.  It certainly made me want to read more.

From page 56:

"Did you come to arrest me, Deputy Brisco?"
"You know, I liked it better when we were just Ty and Trixie."
"That was before you accused me of being a murderer."

Okay, so I did a little editing out of the action of the characters, but that is a fun exchange without Trixie doing some cooking in the kitchen of her diner.

Have a great weekend, all.  Personally, I get to do a mud run tomorrow.  First one since June, and I can't wait.

Meanwhile, I've like to invite you back for my own new weekly Meme.  It's not book related but story related - Weekly TV Thoughts.  You can follow that link to read more about it.  I know the TV season doesn't start in earnest until next week (I hardly had any TV to watch myself this week), but feel free to jump in this week or next week or whenever you want to join.

  2. I'm glad the new job is going well :) And I know how frustrating it is when working interferes with blogging! At least you're here this week. The BB is something I ask myself multiple times a day! And murder accusations definitely changes an acquaintance back to last-name basis! Thanks for sharing :) Have a great weekend!

    1. Actually, I was so brain dead last week, I didn't even think about it until I was in bed. Usually, I remember much earlier than that. Fortunately, the crazy days won't hit the same day of the week every month.

  3. A new cozy. I just love these. I had a feeling she was going to be a suspect. Sounds fun.

    1. It does seem like the main character is a suspect in the first in most series, doesn't it? At least the police aren't looking at her super seriously, although they'd be stupid not to at least consider the possibility. And that's all I'm saying.

  4. I really want to read this one. Sounds great.

    I just started a new job, too, it's been crazy and I haven't had as much reading time as I would have liked. Good luck with your new job.

    1. Congrats on your new job as well!!! That's great news. But it does cut down on the reading time, doesn't it?

    1. Yeah! Another TV addict. That conversation in the 56 was too much fun to pass up, so I was glad it landed on page 56.

  6. I love the series title: A Comfort Food Mystery. Who could resist that? The opening definitely makes me want to know more, and I like the dialogue in your 56. Sounds like a fun book.
