This week, let's get into the Christmas mood with Six Cats a Slayin' by Miranda James.
What, you were expecting something other than a murder mystery from me? (Yes, I do something else occasionally, but not this week.)
Here's how the book begins:
I opened the envelope and read the enclosed invitation. After the import of it had sunk in, I balled up the stiff card and threw it across the kitchen. I muttered a curse to myself.
There isn't really a good quote from page 56, so I'm going to cheat and quote all of page 57 instead. (Okay, so it's only a couple of paragraphs since it's the end of a chapter.)
About to close the door, I spied a folded piece of paper stuck to it with a tack. I removed the tack and unfolded the note. I immediately recognized the childish scrawl.
They're gone! I thought you'd take care of them! What did you do with them? Where are they?
I've finished this book, which was fun like always for this series. I'll be posting a full review, with giveaway, on Tuesday, so I hope you'll come back and enter.
Have a wonderful weekend.
