November 13th's Book Beginnings and Friday 56

It's Friday the 13th.  I think I am going to stay inside and stay safe with Book Beginnings and Friday 56.

This week, I'm going back in time with The Enemy We Don't Know by Liz Milliron.  Yes, it's a mystery, but it's set in Buffalo, New York in World War II.

This is the first book in the Home Front Mysteries, and I enjoyed it.  Here's how the book begins:

I wish life was more like a movie.  See, in the pictures, it's easy to tell the good guys from the bad guys.  The good guys wear white hats and the music is real positive.  The bad guys wear black hats and their music is grim.

Jumping ahead to 56% into the book, we find this.

I almost said something, but for once in my life I thought twice about it.  I looked between Marcus and William.  I knew that look.  Lee would definitely tell me to beat feet, and this time he'd be right.

I'll be reviewing the book come Tuesday, so I hope you'll come back to see what I thought.  Meanwhile, have a great weekend.


  1. If only it were that simple to tell the bad guys from the good guys... Looks like an interesting read!

  2. I love Buffalo. Okay, so I've only been there a handful of times in my life and never for long because it's just a stopover place on my way to somewhere else when I am in that part of the country. But this has nothing to do with anything. I do like WWII mysteries though, so there is that as well. :-)

    I like the opening--and admit I've had that thought too. LOL

    I hope you have a great weekend, Mark. Stay safe and well.

  3. This one looks interesting. I like the quotes.

  4. Interesting snippets! Happy weekend!
