May 22nd's Book Beginning and Friday 56

Not only is it a Friday, but it is a holiday weekend Friday here in the states!  I'm kicking things off with Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week, I'm offering a teaser from The Study of Secrets by Cynthia Kuhn.


This is the fifth book in the Lila Maclean mystery series.  It comes out on Tuesday, and I'll be back when with my review.

In the mean time, here's how the book begins.
"Have you found any buried treasure in the study?" Bibi asked, pouring me another cup of tea.

Meanwhile, at 56% , we find:

"Back up, please.  Why did you go to the police station?"

Short and sweet this week.

Hope you have a great weekend and will come back Tuesday for my review of this fun book.


  1. That opening made me smile. I can't tell the genre or audience, but it would fit nicely in kidlit.

    Here's mine for this week.

  2. Why did they go to the police station?!

  3. I wanna know why too!! ;-) Happy weekend, stay safe!

  4. Buried treasure? I'm interested. I'm not familiar with this author but I do like cozies.

    Happy reading!

  5. Sounds interesting :) I keep forgetting about the holiday, since we're still staying home anyway. Thanks for sharing - enjoy your weekend!

  6. I love mysteries. I need to check this series out. I look forward to reading your review. Have a great week!
