Friday Meme’s ~ Broadcast 4 Murder

December 18, 2020 Misc. 3

Since there are a few Friday Meme’s that I want to participate in I have decided to post them all in one post.

book beginnings memeBook Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. Take the first sentence of your current read and post it.

In J.C. Eaton’s seventh Sophie Kimball Mystery, Sophie’s kooky mother, Harriet, is gearing up to become Arizona’s newest radio star as the host of the Booked 4 Murder Mystery Hour. But when she ends up broadcasting herself discovering a dead body live on air, it’s up to the reluctant sleuth Sophie to find the killer…

Phee’s mother Harriet is going to be a star! At least, that’s how the Sun City West retiree describes her chance to host a live radio program of her book club’s Booked 4 Murder Mystery Hour on Arizona’s KSCW. But instead of chatting about charming cozies, Harriet ends up screaming bloody murder over the airwaves after discovering the body of Howard Buell, the station’s programming director, in a closet–with a pair of sewing shears shoved into his chest.

The number one suspect is Howard’s ex-girlfriend Sylvia Strattlemeyer who believed she was going to host a sewing talk show before Harriet was offered the spot. But not only do the fingerprints found on the scissors not match Sylvia’s, they belong to a woman who passed away twenty years ago at the age of ninety-seven. Now, with the whole town on pins and needles, it’s up to Phee to stitch together enough clues from the past to uncover the identity of a killer in the present… 

Just finished this one today and it was so good! I love this series it’s so fun to read and makes me laugh every time!

Myrna Mittleson, all five-foot-nine of her, charged out of my mother’s house and nearly bumped into me on the walkway. “Oops! Sorry, Phee! I’m in a rush to get to the beauty parlor. God bless the state of Iowa!”

Myrna is one of Phee’s moms friends and she just found out that Harriet and her are going to be on a live radio broadcasting. I am just thinking to myself, why does she need to go to the beauty parlor, nobody is going to see her hair!! LOL 🙂


Friday 56

The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda @ Freda’s Voice. It’s like Tuesday  Teaser but  you have a specific place in your read that you have to turn in your read (page 56 or 56%) to get your teaser.

“Your mother’s on the phone. She wants to know if you’d like her to get us a SodaStream. She’s at another one of those garage sales or whatever you call it.”

“Tell her yes so we can get going. Otherwise she’ll convince you we need one. It must be a heck of a bargain.”

If you have read books in this series before you will understand Phee’s reasoning for just saying yes…lol. 🙂

This is from 56% on the eARC so subject to change in final copy.

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer.  Each week we are asked a question to answer so it reminds me a bit of FF and so I thought it made a good fit to my other Friday Memes.

Do you have any bookish ornaments on your Christmas tree?

No, I don’t even have a tree. If I did have a tree, I am sure I would put something bookish on it. We just don’t really do much in the way of decorating.

    This book was so good! Harriet is just hilarious though I must admit I’m glad she’s not my mother. I think that’d be rather exhausting. We do have a tree but the only bookish ornament I have is a little Anne figure from Anne of Green Gables.
