November 28th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I did, with lots of great food and time spent with family.  But now it's time to get down to the serious business of Book Beginning and Friday 56 for the week.

This week's book is Tagged for Death by Sherry Harris.




This is the first in a new cozy series.  It won't be published until Tuesday, but I've just finished an ARC.  My official review will be up on publication day, but here's a spoiler - I loved it!

Shall we get down to it?  Here's how it begins:

A gunshot sounded.  I jerked the phone away from my ear.  This time, I hung up first.

And from page 56 we get:

"CJ was nowhere.  Not during the interview.  Not after."
"Did you want him to be?"
I sat at my small kitchen table, tracing my finger around the bright flowers printed on the vintage tablecloth.  "He should have been.  No.  Maybe I did want him there.  Not for why you think."

I definitely recommend this book, and as I said, my review will be up on Tuesday.
