July 1st's Book Beginning and Friday 56

It's Friday, and the Friday of a holiday weekend!  Let's kick it off with this week's Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week, I'm featuring The Pursuit by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg.

I'm actually out of town for work right now, and I read most of it on the plain ride out of town.  Now, I need to write the review.  It probably won't show up for a couple of weeks, but I enjoyed the book very much.  If you are a fan of the series, you will to.

I mean, how can you not enjoy a book that starts off like this:

Nicolas Fox, infamous con artist and thief, woke up in a coffin.

And, jumping ahead to page 56, we find this exchange between Kate, an FBI agent, and Nick, the con man:

"You're looking good," Kate said.
"Orange is my color."
"I'm referring to the handcuffs," Kate said.  "You were born to wear them."
"They're a bit snug."

There you have it for the week.  Enjoy your holiday weekend no matter which side of the border you are on.


  1. That is one hell of an opening!I It definitely grabs your attention straightaway. And the sass in the F56 is also a lot of fun! I enjoy good and funny dialogue but it can be quite rare! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!
