March 24th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

It's Friday once again, which means it is time for Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week, I'm featuring When the Grits Hit the Fan by Maddie Day (aka Edith Maxwell).


This is the third is a series I love, and it is so much fun.  I just finished it earlier today.  Watch for my review on Tuesday, which is release day.
Keeping in mind that this is a murder mystery, don't you just love this first line:

Who knew people could be so nasty to each other?

Unfortunately, that's true in real life, not just in murder mysteries, isn't it?

Since I read this from NetGalley, I'm jumping to 56% into the book for the Friday 56 this week.  Don't worry, I won't spoil anything:

"Hang on there, Paul.  I'm a few steps behind you and can't see too well back here."

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I love that first line! You're absolutely right about people being nasty. I will have to see if this is still up on NG. Thanks for sharing this one. :)

  2. With grits in the title, this does sound like a southern mystery. Happy reading.

  3. I went back and forth on getting this one on NetGalley and to my regret decided not to request it. It sounds so good and that beginning is perfect!

  4. I already have this series on my radar. I always have room for more cozies:)
