We've made it to Friday! And, once again, I'm taking it off to make a three day weekend, so I'm already in weekend mode. But, before I get there completely, I'm going to create a Friday post. I will be linking up this week to:
This week, I'll be pulling quotes from Muddled Through by Barbara Ross.
This is the tenth book in the Maine Clambake Mysteries. I finished it earlier this week, and I loved it, which is no surprise since this is a favorite series.
This book jumps right into the action, which makes for a great Book Beginnings and First Line Friday:
I spotted the whirl of blue lights the moment I left my mother's house.
Doesn't that make you want to read on to find out what is happening?
Jumping ahead to page 56, we get this quote for Friday 56:
If Dr. Simpson, a family practitioner and our part-time ME, couldn't handle the situation, it meant cause of death wasn't either natural or obvious. The call to the state police Major Crimes Unit could only mean one thing - murder.
Okay, so maybe that quote isn't exactly shocking. I mean, I read murder mysteries so is it really a surprise that a murder took place?
I enjoyed this book as always. The official release date is this coming Tuesday, and I hope you'll come back then for my full review.
Let's close thing out with the Book Blogger Hop. This week's question is:
What is your reading preference - fiction or nonfiction?
Definitely fiction. Specifically, mystery. More specifically, cozy mystery. Although I do read some harder mysteries and some middle grade mystery and fantasy.
