What does that have to do with Book Beginning and Friday 56 for the week? Absolutely nothing! So let's get to it.
The book this week is Farmed and Dangerous by Edith Maxwell.
This is the third in her local foods mystery series. And it begins like this:
Cameron Flaherty sidestepped in surprise as a tall man with gleaming skin the color of dark-roasted coffee beans stormed into the institutional kitchen at Moran Manor Assisted Living, his deep brown eyes flashing.
And skipping ahead to 56% into this e-ARC (I'm only 30% of the way into it myself):
The car kept coming. She tried to push herself up but slipped again. She waved her arms in front of her. Surely the driver would see her. Surely he would stop.
And now I'm anxious to watch up to that point in the book and find out what is happening there.
