July 8th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

This was a short week?  Hardly felt like it, probably because I was so busy at work.  But we've made it to Friday, so it's time for this week's Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week, I'm featuring Kernel of Truth by Kristi Abbott.



This is the first book in the Popcorn Shop Mysteries.  I finished it this week, and I really enjoyed it.  I need to get a review written, but the plan is to review it next week.

But we are here for some teasers, right?  So here's the opening line:

The caramel sauce was almost three hundred and fifty degrees when the screaming started.

Yeah, that beginning definitely made me want to read more.

Jumping ahead of page 56, we find this exchange between Rebecca, the main character, and Dan, the sheriff:

I thought for a second.  "Could he be telling the truth?"
Dan ran his hands back through his hair.  "If he was telling the truth, I'm not sure why he felt compelled to smack Huerta in the back of the head with a frying pan and make a run for it."

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
