This week, I'm back to just one book, A Muddied Murder by Wendy Tyson.
I'm about a third of the way through the book and really enjoying it. It's part of what is turning into a theme week for me - farm week. Come back next week for two books and an ornament related to that theme.
But that's next week. For today, what do you say we get to some quotes. Here's how this book begins.
Early mornings at Washington Acres were dead quiet. It was usually Megan Sawyer's favorite part of the day, a time when the farm's inhabitants went about their daily routines silently, ghosts in a tranquil pre-dawn landscape. Today there was a disturbance in the air, an almost palpable sense of something amiss.
I'm going to cheat a little with the 56 this week. Page 56 doesn't have any grabber quotes. But on page 54, we find this one:
"My grandmother is in her eighties. It's absolutely ridiculous to think she'd have anything to do with Simon's murder."
"I know, Megan. I know." Clover looked up. "But then why is she being so secretive?"
That's it for this week. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone. On my agenda? Finishing this book, of course.
