Book Beginnings and Friday 56 for June 26th

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

I'm getting ready for the 4th of July next weekend by reading Independence Slay by Shelley Freydont.

This is the third book set in Celebration Bay, where the town is a tourist draw because they have events for every season.  Liv Montgomery is the event coordinator for the town, but she seems to keep getting involved in murders.

Here's how this particular book starts out.

Liv Montgomery slapped at her cheek.  "Ugh.  This might be my least favorite thing about summer in Celebration Bay."

I've got to admit that page 56 was a bit of a challenge for me.  It was very hard not to pick up on something that would be a spoiler.  That's why the quote is short and sweet this week.

"Do you think he's dead, too?"

There you have it.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend.  I'm flying to Georgia on business Sunday morning.  You can bet I've got books lined up for the flights there and back.


  1. This looks like a fun book, great pick.

    My Friday 56:

    Have a lovely week.

  2. I've only read the first book in this series so far. I have some catching up to do. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. Short and intriguing. Here is mine

  4. Liv is such a fun character. I read another book in this series and had a blast. She's always got some kind of fireworks happening. LOL

    My 56 -

  5. A good one for the 4th! Thanks for sharing and enjoy. Here's mine: “THE HOUSE OF MEMORIES”

  6. Sounds like a fun series. You can see my posts at #27 and #28 on Freda's linky. Happy reading!

  7. I'm guessing the beginning is about mosquitoes and if that's the case I do not disagree. I hate those things! This sounds like a fun series!

  8. Sounds like a fun series. I enjoy mysteries set in small towns, especially cozy mysteries.
    My Friday post features The Runaway Quilt.

  9. Perfect read with your upcoming holiday! Happy weekend!
