January 10th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

Second Friday of the year, and second time doing Book Beginning and Friday 56 this year.  I'm on a roll!

This week, I'm featuring Buyer, Beware by Diane Vallere.





I finished this book earlier in the week.  It was a lot of fun.

Here's how the book begins:

This wasn't how I'd planned to spend my Saturday night.

Yep, just one teaser sentence from the book this week.  But it worked to hook me.

I'm going to quote a bit more from page 56 (and 57), but it's too funny not to share.

The comforter on the bed started ringing.  I padded my hand around until I found the cordless phone twisted up in the sheets.  It was early for Nick to call, but maybe he was making up for last time.
"Hey Tiger," I said in my best sex-kitten voice.
"Samantha Kidd?  This is Detective Loncar."

I will be reviewing the book on Monday, so if you want to read more about it, I hope you'll come back then.

  1. Oh noooo, gosh that 56 snippet sounds so embarrassing (but funny because hey, it wasn't me). Sounds like it was a fun read!

    Here's my Friday post.
