September 8th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

It hasn't felt like a short week, but we've made it through to Friday.  That means it is time for Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week's book is Asking for Truffle by Dorothy St. James.

Chocolate and mysteries?  What's not to love?  Am I right?

Here's the beginning:

The strange letter I'd received in the mail earlier today had me popping chocolate squares into my mouth as if they were candy.  Well, to be fair, they were candy.  But they were also chocolate.

And from 56% into the book:

"What do you do if you need to drive somewhere and someone else has driven off with your car?" I asked.
"Oh, for heaven's sake, child, he takes his motorbike."
"You mean to tell me Harley drives a Harley?"
He rubbed the back of his neck.  "Actually it's a Yamaha."
"You should totally trade it in for a Harley," I muttered.

Have a great weekend.  I've got a book signing planned as part of mine.


  1. You're very right, Mark. I have this one in my TBR. I'm looking forward to it. I would love for you and your readers to check out mine . . .

  2. Yep. If you read my bio, it mentions chocolate as a must have while reading. LOL I do love the cozies too:) Such a fun title and cover.

  7. This one is on my TBR and it looks so fun! I have another series by her that I need to read though I can't remember which one it is.
