October 16th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

We've made it to Friday, so it must be time for Book Beginning and Friday 56!

This week's book is Fry Another Day by J. J. Cook.



This is the second in the Biscuit Bowl Food Truck Mystery series, and it involves a cross country Food Truck rally of sorts with competitions along the stops in the south east.  Oh, and a murder or two thrown in as well.  I really do want to try some of the biscuit bowls!

But, since I could share one with you even if I made one, here's how the book begins:

"Can you really make a biscuit out of sweet potatoes, Zoe?" Delia asked.

The answer to that is...  Wait, you actually expected me to spoil something?  Sorry.  But here's a teaser from page 56:

Uncle Saul made an unbelieving face.  "You think those two are the front runners, Zoe?"
"I think so.  What can't you do with bread?  Who doesn't love cupcakes?  It won't matter what the challenge is, bread or cupcakes will win every time."

Is she right?  You'll have to read the book to find out.

  1. Bread of cupcakes? Sounds like a fun cozy series. This week I am spotlighting Binding the Shadows by Jenn Bennett. Happy reading!

    1. That was a typo on my part.. Should be "bread OR cupcakes." The book was certainly fun.

    1. I was having a hard time imaging them not being delicious. It's hard to go wrong with sweet potatoes. Glad to know I'm right. Not I just need to try them.

    1. Who doesn't love cupcakes, right? Sadly, there wasn't a recipe for the sweet potato biscuits in the back of the book, but I'd love to try them.
