October 27th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

We've almost made it through another week, which means it is time for this week's Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week's book is Blackberry Burial by Sharon Farrow.

This is the second Berry Basket Mystery, and it is a lot of fun.

Here's how it begins:

I was prepared to do a great deal for my business.  Dying my hair raspberry red was not one of them.  Now I only had to convince the photographer.

Jumping ahead to page 56, we find this:

Like a heroine from the Old West, I was counting on the sheriff to help me out of this mess.  Or, in this case, the head of the sheriff department's investigative branch.

This is only page 56.  She won't be out of it by a long shot at that point.  What a boring book it would be if that were the case.

I'll be reviewing this book on 10/31, which is release day.  I hope you'll come back then to see what I thought of it.


  1. Hi there, Mark!

    Ha! That sounds like a really funny read! I love the cover, too.

  2. This one sounds like another great cozy. I don't know if I'd dye my hair raspberry but I have considered pink or purple. I have a science fiction book this week - The Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi. Happy reading!

  3. I really liked the first one. Haven't read this one yet. Have a great weekend Mark! I hope you and your readers will check out mine today . . .

  4. That beginning made me LOL! Happy weekend!

  5. I don't think I'd be dying my hair a raspberry red either! That's a hard color to pull off! I'm not familiar with this one but I love the sound of it. I'll definitely be checking back for your review.

  6. I always like the covers for cozies! :)
