This week's book is Death Is Like a Box of Chocolates by Kathy Aarons.
I actually just finished the book earlier this evening, and I enjoyed it. You can check back for my review on Tuesday.
But in the meantime, here's how it begins:
"I don't do cupcakes," I told Erica, who obviously hadn't been listening to me in the two years we'd been best friends.
And I just flipped to page 56 and found a wonderful quote to use for that:
For the second time in my life, and the second time in one day, I was surrounded by police officers.
Before I go, I do want to put in another plug for the page I run on Facebook - First Line Monday. It's much like what we do with Book Beginnings, only on Monday on Facebook. Any and all readers are welcome to join. I just ask that you don't flood the page (and yes, I stupidly set it up as a page when I opened it) with links to your blog. I don't even post my own blog posts on the page. It's just about sharing first lines once a week.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I'm playing in an ultimate Frisbee tournament on Saturday (supposed to be 80 here in Southern California), and then I turn 40 on Sunday. And if you want to get me something, joining First Line Monday and sharing a line this week would be a wonderful gift.
