March 16th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

Welcome to this week's Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week, I'm featuring an ebook I just finished, Cardiac Arrest by Lisa Q. Mathews.

This is the first book in the Ladies Smythe & Westin series, and it is fabulous.  I will be reviewing it on Thursday, so I hope you'll come back then.

Meantime, here are a couple of teasers for you.  Up first, the beginning:

As a general rule, Dorothy Westin preferred to mind her own business.  But the leggy blonde on the top-of-the-line smartphone three lounge chairs down was making that rather difficult.

And, from 56% into the book, we find this:

The powder room door flew open and Summer quickly ducked behind the Laura Ashley drapes.  Someone was in an even bigger hurry than she'd been, and sounded just as upset.

Have a great weekend.


  1. I love 'the powder room' it certainly gives a feel for the tone of the book.

    Here is my choice for this week:

    Have a wonderful weekend, with lots of reading time!

  2. Sounds great! You had me at Ladies Smythe & Westin series though. :-) Happy weekend!

  3. Sounds great. I'll be adding this one to my wishlist. This week I am spotlighting The Broken Girls by Simone St. James. Happy reading!

  4. This sounds good and this is a series I haven't come across before so it makes it extra intriguing! I do love a good cozy.
