July 30th's Book Beginnings and Friday 56

 It's Friday again, and I'm once again participating in Book Beginnings and Friday 56.

This week, I'm featuring The Chocolate Racoon Rigmarole by JoAnna Carl.

This is book eighteen in the Chocoholic Mysteries.  Now, I'll admit that many of the books I read are light, but this series is ultra light.  Still, they are fun.

Here's how this particular book begins:

I love coffee, but I don't usually drink it at the gas station with the guys.

Yeah, I'll admit that the opening sentence caught my attention.  I'm leaving it there so you can discover the full context on your own.

Meanwhile, over at the 56% point, we find this:

Finally Mike said, "There's a bunch of guys named Bob.  It's a pretty common name."
"I mean the one you threatened a couple of weeks ago," I said.

Why was Mike threatening Bob?  Who is Bob?  Wait, you didn't think I was going to spoil anything, did you?

This book will be out on Tuesday, and I will have my full review up then.  I hope you'll stop by then and see what I thought.

Meanwhile, have a wonderful weekend.


  1. Hahaha I love that Mike had to be reminded about which specific Bob is the topic of conversation! It's nice to have a reliable series you can go to for some lightness/fun with the slightest edge of thrills. I hope you have a wonderful weekend :)

  3. Wonder what Mike did to piss him off?! Good 56! Happy weekend!

  4. I'm starting this one soon and I absolutely cannot wait! This is one I really want to go back and read the beginning because I've enjoyed the few books I've read from this series.
