May 24th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

Yes, I missed last week, but I'm back this week for Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week, I'm featuring the latest Murder, She Wrote tie in novel - Murder in Red by Jessica Fletcher and Jon Land.

This book will be out on Tuesday, and I'll have a review with giveaway up on release day.  But for now, let's look at how the book begins:

"Well, Jessica, at least I wasn't murdered."

And if you are a fan of the show at all (or familiar with it by reputation), you will get why I loved that first line so much.

Jumping ahead to page 56, we find:

Amazing how something as unsavory as murder never failed to bring us closer, our lives as occasional companions seemingly centered on the deaths of others.

That's it for me this week.  Hope you have a great weekend, long one for some of us.  And I hope you'll stop back by on Tuesday for my review of this book.


  1. I haven't read any of the Murder, She Wrote novels but have seen some of the shows. It looks good - I like that opening line!

  2. I'm a fan of the Murder, She Wrote show, but I haven't read any of the books. This one looks interesting.

  3. Oh this is new to me, that she has a tie-in. I'd read this! Not read the books either, but have seen the shows.

    Here is my Friday post, thank you! Have a lovely weekend.

  4. I loved this show as a kid, Angela Lansbury is fantastic. I really should read some of the books someday though. :-) Happy Memorial day weekend!
