February 2nd's Book Beginning and Friday 56

It may be Friday, but I almost forgot to do Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week, I'm highlighting Biscuits and Slashed Browns by Maddie Day.

This is the fourth book in the Country Store Mysteries and just came out on Tuesday.  I'll be reviewing it this coming Thursday as part of a blog tour.

Here's how the book begins:

The banner outside Pans 'N Pancakes proclaimed "JOIN MAPLE MANIA!"  The Brown County Maple Festival's logo of a grinning bottle of syrup beamed its invitation.  But the look on Professor Sonia Genest's face would have frozen butter on a tall stack of hot flapjacks.

Since I was reading an eARC, we will jump ahead to 56% into the book.  We've got this nice little bit to end a chapter:

After she left I realized she'd never told me when she'd missed the knife.

I really do enjoy this series.  I hope you'll come back on Thursday to see what I thought of this latest entry.


  1. This does sound like a nice cozy. There are just so many books in that genre that I don't know how anyone can keep up. This week I have A Cold Day in Hell by Lissa Marie Redmond. Happy reading!

  2. Yes please! This is a series I'd really like to read though somehow haven't yet. I love that beginning and the 56. So many questions!

  3. Hey, Mark! I'm featuring the same book. Great minds think alike! I love that our 56% snippets are different. I went with one that mentioned the recipe I featured. I'd love for you and your readers to check out my BB & 56 for today . . .

  4. Maple mania sounds fun!! LOL Happy weekend!

  5. Sounds like a very cozy and cute read! Love the cover - that's where I'd like to be today. Enjoy your read!

  6. I like the sound of that title. Thanks for sharing. :)
