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.

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

At the annual Victorian Home and Garden Tour, Lighthouse Cove, California’s premier contractor, Shannon Hammer, realizes that the competition is about to turn deadly….

Shannon is in high demand among rival homeowners, who will do anything to win Best in Show. One-upmanship and even espionage break out among neighbors, construction crews, decorators, and landscapers. Thanks to several new hires, Shannon is sure she can handle the extra load–until murder throws a wrench in the works.

The small town’s corrupt building inspector is found dead on one of Shannon’s jobsites, and soon plenty of suspects are coming out of the woodwork. When another body is discovered, Shannon calls on her team of close friends and devilishly astute thriller writer Mac to help her nail down the details and build a case against the killer before the door shuts on someone else–for good. 

I broke my rule of always reading a cozy series (heck any series) from the beginning, but I have watched the Hallmark movie on this series and thought it might be okay to snatch up the newest one to review. 🙂 So far it’s going pretty good and I am enjoying it so now I must go back to book one. 🙂

I really love my job. But I’ve got to admit, some days are better than others.

Boy, I don’t think I could work with this lady she is talking about here as soon as that woman talks it’s like, ‘Wow, your rude.” LOL.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.

“We heard you found him dead,” Emily said, slinging her arm around my shoulders. “You poor thing. How many bodies does that make now?”

My eyes widened. “Emily!”

It sounds like poor Shannon has found a few bodies and her friends are keeping count. 🙂

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.

Which book(s) would you like Santa to bring you this year? 

OMG, this is such a hard question! I want so many!! 🙂

I would like the books in the Hannah Swensen mysteries by Joanna Fluke. I have read the first two and my Secret Santa got me #3!! So I need any thing from 4 to 22!!!! So behind…lol. There are several series I would love to start, I am sure Santa doesn’t want to hear about all of them…lol. 🙂

This is #4 doesn’t it look cool!! 🙂


  1. This is a delightful Laurel & Hardy film. While they often explored “dark” comedy in certain scenes and situations, it wasn’t that often in their more than 100 films together that they directly did a whole film in the horror/comedy genre. They do well in this, while remaining in their normal characters throughout. It’s an odd evening in the lives of Stan & Ollie.

    Depending on whether you like their “milking” of gags, you might either get bored with their difficulties in climbing the wall, or else admire the amount of humor that they can get out of their efforts. I think it’s funny when Ollie finally decides that HE is going to go over the wall (I won’t give away the gag for anyone who hasn’t seen this film yet).

    As the review points out, it plays well with groups of people together. My daughter showed “Habeas Corpus” to her history class in high school (the teacher asked one day if anyone had access to a silent movie). Most of the kids had never seen a silent film, but this one got a lot of laughs.
