Friday Meme’s ~Dead and Breakfast
Since 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 most anticipated book of 2017?
Let’s see I am really excited for the following
and many others!!! 🙂
Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. Take the first sentence of your current read and post it.
Melanie West is getting her life back on track after a messy divorce when her grandmother, Liza Harris, asks her to open a B&B with her. Together, Liza and Melanie purchase a purportedly haunted mansion on the Oregon coast and jump right into clearing out the cobwebs. But while attempting to remove wallpaper in an upstairs bedroom, the new B&B owners stumble upon a very real skeleton in their closet.
The police suspect the skeleton is that of the wife of the previous owner of the B&B, but no one in town seems to want to say much about her. As the inn owners try to juggle renovations with their own amateur investigations, their grand opening looms closer and closer–and a friendly ghost in their walls starts playing tricks. But it all comes crashing to a halt when a new body is found stabbed to death on the beach below the inn–the victim chillingly close in resemblance to Melanie herself.
It seems someone doesn’t appreciate newcomers prying into the small town’s past, and now it’s up to Melanie and Liza to get to the bottom of these murders to save their business…and their lives. ((
Currently reading this one and so far it’s been pretty good. 🙂
The paper covering the bedroom walls was a dull beige, with green ferns and brown spots that could have been pinecones or hand grenades, depending on what frame of mind you were in. Melanie West’s frame of mind was definitely leaning towards the grenades.
“This,” she murmured, “should have been torn down years ago.”
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.
“You were right about the wallpaper in the living room. Since we have some time on our hands, I think we should strip it and paint the walls. I can’t stand to look at those prancing peasant women any longer. They look deformed.”
” Liza raised her eyebrows. “I don’t think they’re peasants. Those clothes were probably the height of fashion when the paper was pasted on the walls.”
“Exactly. More than a hundred years ago. Antique or not, that paper has to go. If we’re going to provide a comfortable lounge for our visitors to relax in, they shouldn’t have to stare at buxom maidens chasing moths in a swamp.”
“Meadow.” Melanie puffed out her breath. “What?” “It’s not a swamp, it’s a meadow, and they’re chasing butterflies.”
“It’s not a swamp, it’s a meadow, and they’re chasing butterflies.”
I know it’s a bit long but their conversation about the wallpaper just made me chuckle. 🙂
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.
Where’s your favorite place to read?
I don’t really have a favorite place to read, but I do enjoy reading in my bed before sleeping.
