Friday Meme’s ~ Scandal Above Stairs
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 is hosted by Rose City Reader. Take the first sentence of your current read and post it.
Priceless artwork has gone missing from the home of a wealthy baronet, and his wife stands to take the blame. When Kat’s employer asks for help in clearing her friend’s name, Kat trades her kitchen for the homes of Mayfair’s wealthiest families.
Soon antiques are disappearing not only from the extravagant households of connoisseurs and collectors, but from the illustrious British Museum. As the thefts increase in frequency, Kat calls upon her friend Daniel McAdam, who has already set himself up in a pawnshop on the Strand as a seedy receiver of stolen goods. When a man is murdered in the shop, Kat must use all of her wits to see that the thieves are caught and justice is done.
I loved the first one so I couldn’t help but start this one now even though it doesn’t come out till July! 🙂
The clatter of crockery on the flagstone floor broke my heart. I knew without turning that it was my platter of whole roast pig, the crowning glory of the vast meal I’d spent days creating for the supper party above stairs in this grand Mayfair house.
Poor Kate, she is short handed and had to use the help of a footman and he didn’t help very well as he dropped her roasted pig, but she is very good at not panicking and coming up with something else on the fly!
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.
It’s a faulty bolt and latch, Tess,” I said, trying to reassure her. “Easy to mend.” “Ain’t right,” Tess said, her voice scratchy. “I don’t like this.”
Oooh something must have happened to the lock on the house! 🙂
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.
What do you think your blog says about you?
Well, I hope it says I like books, lots and lots of books! 🙂 Right now it probably says I like mysteries, lots and lots of mysteries as that is the mood I am in…lol.
