November 15th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

It's Friday, so that means it is time for Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week, I'm featuring Ghosts of Painting Past by Sybil Johnson

I actually finished this book over this last weekend, but since I will be reviewing it this coming Tuesday, publication day, I thought I'd tease it a bit.

Here's how the book opens:

The earthmover moved back and forth, tearing down the last remnants of a house on Seagull Lane, digging up all its secrets.

This is a mystery, so of course there are secrets to be unearthed.

Since I read an electronic arc, I'm jumping to 56% into the book for this:

They were thinking about what might have happened to the surfboard when two heads, one with white hair, one with gray, popped up over the wood fence that separated Rory's property from Mrs. Griswold's.

I really enjoyed this Christmas cozy mystery.  I hope you'll come back and read my review on Tuesday.  Until then, have a great weekend.


  1. It always fascinates me how whenever something new is built in ancient cities something old and mysterious is revealed! I'm glad you enjoyed this one :) I hope you have a lovely weekend and do drop by my Friday Post if you have the time!

  3. I love a good cozy--and a Christmas themed one sounds especially enticing, especially right now. I am glad you enjoyed this one! I hope you have a great weekend!
