December 15th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

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

I'm still in Christmas reading mode, so this week's book is How the Finch Stole Christmas by Donna Andrews.

This is the latest book in the Meg Langslow series, which are always very fun, and this one is no exception.  I'm sure you'll figure that out from these quotes.

Here's how the book begins:

"Shakespeare was right.  'The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers.'"
"I wish I could hear you say that in person," I said.
"Yeah, over the cell phone, you miss all my dramatic gestures."  Michael's voice sounded more exasperated than angry.

And we've got the same two characters talking over the phone again on page 56:

So I called Michael.
"Do you want the good news or the bad news?" I asked.
"There's good news?  That'll be a first for the day."

I hope you'll stop by Tuesday for my review of the book.  Have a great weekend.


  1. I am not in the mood for Christmas reading at all... Unless Murder on the Orient Express can actually count as a "Christmas book?"

    Glad you enjoy your Christmas reading though!

  2. This sounds good. I'll be adding it to my wishlist. I've gotten a couple of Christmas books recently but haven't read any yet. This week I'm reading Crimson Death by Laurell K. Hamilton from my TBR mountain. Happy reading!

  3. I've only read 2 books in this series but I really enjoyed them. I really need to continue with it. I love the teasers and the title on this one!

  4. You have my interest piqued!! Happy weekend!
