Friday Meme’s ~ Calamity Cafe

June 10, 2016 Book Reviews 19

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

Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee.

What is your ALL TIME favorite book?

OMG, that is a very hard question!!!!

So I guess I will have to go with a classic and say Persuasion by Jane Austen, with Pride and Prejudice coming in a very close second. Austen books are the only books I have ever deemed something I could read more than once as I don’t really do much rereading.

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

Calamity Cafe

First in a new cozy mystery series featuring Southern cooking that is to die for.

Aspiring chef and small-town Virginia native Amy Flowers is ready to open her own café offering old-fashioned Southern food. But her dream may go up in smoke when someone kills the competition…

Tired of waiting tables at Lou’s Joint, Amy Flowers doesn’t just quit—she offers to buy the place from her bully of a boss, so she can finally open the café of her dreams. Amy can’t wait to serve the kind of Southern, down-home treats and dishes that her grandmother always loved to the kooky cast of regulars at the restaurant. She knows her comfort food will be the talk of the sweet, small town of Winter Garden, Virginia.

At first Lou Lou refuses to sell, but when she seems ready to make a deal, she tells Amy to come see her.  Showing up at the eatery ready to negotiate, Amy is shocked to find her former employer murdered. As the prime suspect, Amy will have to clear her name by serving up the real killer—and with Lou Lou’s stack of enemies, that’s a tall order.

Just started this one for a blog tour coming up next week. First in a new cozy series!

I took a deep breathe, tightened my ponytail, and got out of my yellow Volkswagen beetle. I knew from experience that the morning rush at Lou’s Joint had passed and that the lunch crowd wouldn’t be there yet.I put my letter of  registration in my purse and headed inside.

Makes you wonder why she is putting in her notice. 🙂


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.

“Aunt Bess you’re looking as pretty as a pat of butter melting on a short stack.” I said.

“Thank you, darlin’. There is no point in people going around like they do. Me and your momma went to the grocery store this morning, and people were walking around in there with their hair uncombed and some of them looked like they were wearing pajamas.” She flattened her lips in disapproval. “And Lord have mercy, what some of them girls were wearing! Or, should I say, not wearing. They ought to be ashamed.”

I have the same mind set as Aunt Bess, I hope that doesn’t mean I am old….lol.

From page 56 of the paperback.

book blogger hop

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.

Are giveaways a part of your blog or only reviews?

I host a giveaway or two now and then but not very many. It’s mainly reviews. I can only do giveaways when I can afford to ship which isn’t very often. Or I will do them if the publisher offers the book for giveaway and I don’t have to ship. 🙂
