March 17th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  No, I don't have an Irish book to share with you for Book Beginning and Friday 56.  Instead, I'm spotlighting Design for Dying by Renee Patrick.


This is a mystery set in 1937 Hollywood.  And if you think that sounds like fun, you'd be right.

Here's how the book begins:
The hem of the dress was drenched in blood.  I could only hope no one would notice.

Jumping a head of page 56, we find this quote.

"Always look your best up to the limits of larceny."

Short and sweet this week, right?  I'll be reviewing the book on Tuesday, so I hope you'll come back then to learn more about it.


  1. I love both the BB and the 56, but I have to be honest, I'm not fond of books set in this time period. I do look forward to your review to see what you thought of it. I'd love for you and your readers to check out mine . . .

  2. You are right. Does sounds like fun. No one notice. LOL

  3. Hoping no one will notice? Why do I think that won't work? This week I am spotlighting The Cutaway by Christina Kovac. Happy reading!

  4. Anything in that Hollywood era sounds intriguing to me. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “NEVER CHANGE”
