February 10th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

Friday is here again, so that means it is time for Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week, I'm featuring Death in Advertising by Laura Bradford.

This is the first in a new series from Laura, one of my favorite authors.  Naturally, I jumped at a chance to read it for a blog tour.  My review will be up on Monday, but I'll let you in on a secret.  I loved it.

For today, let's share some teasers.  Here's how the book starts:

Desperate times call for desperate measures.
A cliche?  Perhaps.  But a cliche , after all, is a truism.  Which, in layman's terms, means whoever coined the desperate measures thing knew what they were talking about.

Since I read an e-ARC of this book, I'm jumping ahead of 56% in the book, where we find this:

Discombobulated.  Don't ask me why, but that word always made me giggle.  I could never say it right, and I couldn't have imaged using it to describe myself.  Oh, how I miss the naivete of youth.

I hope you'll come back on Monday for my stop on the blog tour.


  1. I love that word, Discombobulated. Sounds like a fun book.
