April 26th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

We've made it to Friday, and that can only mean it is time for this week's Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week, I'm featuring The Scent of Murder, the first in a new series from Kylie Logan.

I just finished this book yesterday, and it is FANTASTIC!  I'll be reviewing it next Thursday ahead of its 5/7 release.

Here's how the book begins:

It had rained that afternoon and the sidewalks were still wet. When the last of the evening light hit them, the slate squares reflected Jazz Ramsey’s neighborhood—streetlights, and the neon signs that flashed from the windows of the trendy pubs, and a watery rendering of St. John Cantius church, an urban Monet masterpiece, its tan brick walls and bell tower blurred.

Sets the scene, doesn't it?  Moving ahead to 56% into the book, we find this scene.  Jazz, the main character, is talking to the murder victim's roommates.

"And she was weird," Croc put in.
Since Croc had already settled in with a game of Call of Duty, Jazz turned to Meg for the answer.  "Was she?"
She laughed.  "Hey, I'm a theater major over at Case.  I see weird all the time!  I wouldn't exactly call Florie weird, I'd say she was...strange."

I hope you'll come back to see my thoughts on this book next week.  Meanwhile, my review of the book I featured last week will be up today.

Have a wonderful weekend.


  1. The book looks interesting, and I like the quotes. I look forward to seeing what you thought about the book. :-)

  2. Sounds good. I'll be eager to hear what you think of the book. This week I am spotlighting Pit Perfect Murder by Renee George which is a mashup of a lot of my favorite genres. Happy reading!

  3. Love the cover and snippets, sounds like a good one! I added you to the Linky. Happy weekend!

  4. I've got this one too and am really looking forward to reading it! I love the sound of it.
