March 27th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

It's Friday, it's payday, and tomorrow is the part of my beach ultimate Frisbee league.  What could be better than that?  Nothing, as far as I am concerned.  Well, maybe participating in this week's Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week's book is The Icing on the Corpse by Liz Mugavero, which I was fortunate enough to finish today thanks to an ARC.  My review (and a giveaway) should be up on Tuesday, aka release day.




And it starts like this:

Groundhogs invaded the basement of the Frog Ledge Unitarian Universalist Church.  They came in all shapes and sizes, at least sixty of them - tall, short, fat, skinny, fluffy tails, flat tails.

I must admit, page 56 doesn't have anything super fun or exciting on it, but there is this quote:

Stan hopped in the passenger seat of Amara's little Prius.  "Can you believe how yesterday turned out?" she asked.
"So sad."  Amara backed out of the driveway and turned the car toward Main Street.  "She was a nice lady.  A little abrupt, but she was old enough that she was entitled, you know?"

There you have it.  Hope you have a fantastic weekend.

  2. The Beginning, and the cover, makes it seem that there will be humor. My book this week features dogs, too! Here's the post http://ebogie.blogspot.com

    1. There is a touch of humor at times, but this isn't one of the funnier series I read.

    1. I know, right? I wonder what I'm entitled to do at my age.

  6. What an unusual opening! Since this is a cozy murder mystery, I'm wondering if the groundhogs unearthed a body. I'd keep reading to find out more. I also like: "...she was old enough that she was entitled..." Sounds like there's some humor in this story too.
    My Friday post features GRACIANNA.

    1. You are much more creative than I am. I never considered that. I guessed what was really happening, but I think a cozy with your beginning would be a lot of fun as well.
