October 14th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

We've made it to Friday!!  Let's celebrate with Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week's book is a Halloween themed cozy mystery - The Skeleton Haunts a House by Leigh Perry.

This is the third in the series, which features Sid the Skeleton, a living skeleton.  Well, you know what I mean.  Don't worry, the rest of the cast are humans.

The book is a lot of fun, as you can tell from the first line:

Most people wear Halloween costumes in order to look scarier, but my best friend Sid picked his to look less scary.

No, I'm not going to tell you what his costume is.  You'll have to read the book to find out.

Jumping ahead to page 56, you find this gem:

"What are you doing?" I asked her.
"Working around the cops," she said, looking at her phone again.

There you have it, short and sweet this week.  If you want to learn more, my review will be up next Wednesday.

Have a great weekend.

      And Doward, the series has been picked up by Diversion Books. The fourth in the series--THE SKELETON PAINTS A PICTURE--will be out next fall.
