Friday Meme’s ~Pinot Red, or Dead?

November 22, 2019 Misc. 9

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.

There’s a lot of noir surrounding this rare pinot. 
As the vineyards in Seneca Lake, New York, prepare for the seasonal “Deck the Halls Around the Lake” festivities, someone is determined to keep pinot noir off the wine list. Hijacked trucks and sabotaged ingredients have made it a hard-to-acquire vintage for the six local wineries—including Norrie Ellington’s Two Witches Winery.

The case of the stolen and spoiled wines gets stranger when Arnold Mowen, owner of the company distributing the wine, is found dead, the apparent victim of a hunting accident. As Norrie tries to find the connections between the pinot’s problems and Arnold’s death, she uncovers a conspiracy among many locals whose hatred for the wine distributor was bottled up for far too long . . .

This is book 3 in the Wine Country series, I am doing my best to try and catch up on this series by the end of the month to complete my challenge but I have a feeling I might be one away from doing it! Still one more after this one…eek. I am not loving this series as much as the other series by this writing duo, but it’s okay.

It was a little past eleven in the morning, Tuesday to be precise, and I couldn’t believe what I heard when I walked into the Two Witches Winery tasting room. At first, I thought it was a joke, but when I saw our manager, Cammy, and her crew hanging festive tea lights around the huge fireplace, I realized they were serious about the holiday music that filled the entire room.

There is even Christmas in November in books! The wineries are celebrating “Deck the Halls around the Lake” even though it’s November which has Norrie a bit confused…lolFriday 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.

“You go first,” I said to Godfrey. “She’s liable to hand me a soapy bucket and some rubber gloves.”

Not sure what is happening here but it doesn’t sound fun…lol.

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.

Excluding the Bible, name one book that makes you feel thankful and happy.

Hmm, since I can’t say Bible, then I really am not sure. Okay I am going to go with a childhood favorite, Goodnight Moon, as I have memories of reading it with my dad. It was reading at a young age that brought on a love of reading and I am thankful for that. Books bring out happy memories.
