July 28th's Book Beginnings and Friday 56

It's finally Friday.  It's been one of those weeks.  I've got to do this week's Book Beginnings and Friday 56 really quick so I can go to bed.

This week's good is Dressed to Confess by Diane Vallere.


The book comes out on Tuesday, but I've been fortunate enough to get an advanced copy.  I enjoyed it.  My review, with a giveaway, will be up on Thursday of next week.
But for today, here's how the book begins:

Party planner Ebony Welles stood in the center of Marvin Gardens. Around her feet, additional properties from Monopoly were scattered, along with stacks of over-sized salmon-colored Chance and ochre Community Chest cards.

And over on page 56, we get this gem.

"You've got to help me out here," she said.  "The mayor is breathing down my neck."
"Think about what you are asking me to do."

And that's it for this week.  Happy weekend.

  4. I just recently read a cozy where the MC was an event planner. Now I'm curious about this one. And I've been meaning to try this author too.
