September 9th's Friday Post

It's Friday!  That means it is time for a Friday Post, where I will be linking up to:

Book Beginnings
First Line Friday
Friday 56
Book Blogger Hop

For the first three, I will be featuring teasers from Buttercream Betrayal by Kim Davis.

This is the fifth in her Cupcake Caterer Mysteries.  As always, I enjoyed it.  Here's how the book begins:

"Piper, Missy, stop!  Stay, come, stop, sit!"  My voice cracked as I yelled to get my dogs' attention.

I don't have any pets because I'm allergic to them.  But if I did, that would so be me.

Meanwhile, at 56% into my ARC, here's what we find:

"What's it to you?"  She curled her lip.  "You seem awfully nosy...."
Tillie and I exchanged a glance, and then I turned my attention back to Karla.  I let out a slow breath.  "I found [him], and I feel like I need to know why it happened."
Karla's eyes widened, and she pushed her chai drink away from her.... "You found [the first victim], too, didn't you?"
"I promise I didn't have anything to do with either of their deaths."

Okay, so I did a little editing and redacting.  The first was to cut down the passage I wanted to share, and the second was to avoid spoilers (not that you can't guess who the victim will be early on).

As I said, I enjoyed the book.  I'm reviewing it as part of a blog tour on Thursday, so I hope you'll come back then.

Now, it's time for the Book Blogger Hop.  This week's question is:

Have you taken a look at the website and app Litsy? 

I don't believe I've ever heard of it.  So that would be a no.

Have a great weekend!


  1. That looks perfect for the season. Thanks for sharing and happy reading!

  2. That's quite a lot of commands to throw at a dog in one go xD I like the redacting you did on the F56, I'm still getting a good taste of the flow of the book but by the editing I'm just getting more curious about the plot! Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a lovely weekend :) Juli @ A Universe in Words

  3. This looks like a good series. What a cute cover too.

  4. Those dogs on the cover are so cute! I have not used Listly either

  5. That first line is totally me with my dogs, lol! Thanks for sharing! Hope you have a great weekend! :)

  6. Sounds like a fun one!! Love the puppies! Happy weekend!

  7. My first line comes from Worthy of Legend by Roseanna White:
    The sea was vengeance. The sea was justice. The sea was the hand of the Almighty, stretched out to slap and strike.

  8. Such a cute cover. Glad you enjoyed it. Have a great weekend!

  9. I haven't heard of Litsy either. When I took a glance a few minutes ago I couldn't figure it out so I guess I need to take a bigger glance or just lurk for a while.
    My novel this week is DEACON KING KONG The book is as good as the title!

  10. I'm currently reading Worthy of Legend by Roseanna M. White. It's SO good!
    "The end of the evening was at long last in sight, which lured Emily into relaxation. Too soon, however."
    Hope you have a good weekend!

  11. Such a cute cover! The quote is good too.

    Have a great weekend!

  12. This looks so cute! I love books with dogs in them. I was on Litsy for a bit (at the time it was essentially instagram but just for books) but just wasn't good about keeping up with it.
