August 25th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

Welcome once again to Friday and another edition of Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week, I'm featuring Scam Chowder by Maya Corrigan.

I'm just over the half way point and enjoying it.  Hoping to finish it off by the end of the day.

Here's how the book begins:

"Blech.  Ugly appetizer.  I could add chopped roaches to it, and no one would notice."

Not exactly complementary, now is it?  And here's what we find on page 56:

She winced.  "You missed your cue.  You were supposed to tell me not to worry."

Short and sweet this week, but I hope you enjoyed.

Have a great weekend.


  1. Glad to hear you're enjoying your current read.

  2. I hate the word "roaches" in a book. Still, it sounds like a good read.

  3. Love the title! It sounds like fun. My teasers are from a historical mystery - A Conspiracy in Belgravia by Sherry Thomas. Happy reading!

  4. If even chopped cockroaches would go unnoticed, that must be one bad looking appetizer. Quite a description. Haha! This sounds like a great cozy. I like the title, especially.

    Thank you for sharing, Mark! I hope you have a great weekend!
