For the first three, I will be sharing teasers from Murder at the Mushroom Festival by Janet Finsilver.
This is the fourth in her Kelly Jackson Mysteries, and it was another good book. Let's jump right in and see how the book starts:
Mushrooms of all shapes, sizes, and colors covered the top of the large table in the work area of Redwood Cove Bed-and-Breakfast. Each had been centered on a white piece of paper. Some looked like a person's sweet, peaceful dream of fluffy white clouds. Others were from someone's ghoulish nightmare. I reached toward a fascinating orange one with white dots.
"Stop!" the short, blond woman next to me shouted.
That will get your attention, won't it? Meanwhile, at the 56% mark in the book, we find this:
I thought about what had happened to [Spoiler]. Had one of the mushroom distributors made a mistake? If not that, when how did it happen?
Yep, I'm once again avoiding letting you know who something happened to so you will be surprised when you read the book.
This was a fun addition to the series. I will be reviewing it next Thursday, so I hope you'll come back then to read my full review.
Meanwhile, let's take a look at this week's question for the Book Blogger Hop:
Have you ever skipped ahead to read the ending?
I don't remember ever skipping ahead of read the ending, but I have skimmed at the end to make sure a certain character was going to be okay. Which is really just splitting hairs, isn't it?
I hope you have a great weekend.
