October 20th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

Yes, I missed last week, but I'm back for this week's Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week, I'm highlighting Pillow Stalk by Diane Vallere.

Our main character in this book is Doris Day fanatic and mid-century modern decorator Madison Night.

Here's how the book begins:

"Mr. Johnson, I'm calling to discuss the disposition of your mother's estate," I said into the yellow donut phone.

Jumping ahead to page 56, we get this:

That's when I saw the headline:
Unsolved Twenty Year Old Homicide in Lakewood Back in Public Eye

I've finished this book, and I really enjoyed it.  I hope you'll stop back here on Tuesday for my review of the book.

But for now, have a great weekend.


  1. Cute book! Glad you enjoyed it!

  2. All right...a cozy cold case. :-) Enjoy the weekend.
