Friday Meme’s ~ Southern Fried
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.
In the South, it’s better when the food is fried and the secrets kept buried…
After the dead body of a beloved Cottonwood resident is found tangled up in an electric fence, Sheriff Kenni Lowry has a hunch that somethin’ ain’t right. Her investigation heats up with a fierce cook-off competition, a euchre game where the intel is sweeter than the brownies, and a decades old family recipe that may just be the proof in the pudding.
The icing on the cake: Kenni is fighting an attraction to her recently sworn-in deputy sheriff, and election season is hot on her tail. When the killer comes after who she holds most dear, even her poppa’s ghostly guidance might not be enough to keep her and her own out of the frying pan.
I loved the first one and it’s from one of my favorite authors so I am sure it won’t disappoint and I need a good read since my last one wasn’t up to par. 🙂
“Someone cooked his goose and cooked it good.” Poppa squatted next to the lifeless body Myrna Savage had found in her greenhouse, right on top of her tomato plants. The body had on jeans and a dark blue hoodie with the hood still pulled up over the head, the face smashed right down into a pile of tomatoes-so we couldn’t tell whether it was a man or a woman.
Love that intro! 🙂
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.
Duke went wild from inside the Wagoneer when he saw Stanley bump into me. “Mangy mutt,” he muttered.
“Stay.” I ordered Duke, knowing that if he really wanted to, he could jump out the window and take Stanley down in a minute.
“That was good.” Poppa’s voice came from behind me.
I continued to watch Stanley Godbey walk to his truck with a stalking, purposeful intent.
It’s a ghostly cozy and her Poppa is a ghost. 🙂 I am curious about Stanley.
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 visit every listed blog in the linky list when you are participating in a meme?
No, I do not. If the list is small I might but I do some memes with a really large list of people participating and it’s just not possible. I do try and visit a few new ones each week.
