January 22nd's Book Beginning and Friday 56

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

This week, I'm featuring A Pairing to Die For, the second in the fun Colorado Wine Mysteries by Kate Lansing.


I really enjoyed the first in this series, and this one was just as fun.

Here's how it begins:

I should have brought flowers.  A pacifying bouquet of lilies, hydrangeas, and daisies.  Instead, foolishly, I brought wine, and left myself open to a world of criticism from my boyfriend's judgy family.

Jumping ahead to 56% into the book, we've got this:

"You should be more careful who you sneak up on," she says, her focus entirely on the task at hand.
"I tried to holler so I wouldn't spook you."
"It'll take more than that to catch me off guard."  There's a twinkle in her gray eyes.

The book comes out on Tuesday.  My review won't be up until Thursday, but don't wait until then.  It's a great book.  (But come back Thursday to read my full review.)
