Friday Focus: The Friday 56 & Book Beginnings #65


It's Friday . . . time to share excerpts from a current or upcoming read with:
  • Book Beginnings on Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, where bloggers share the first sentence or more of a current read, as well as initial thoughts about the sentence(s), impressions of the book, or anything else that the opening inspires.  
  • The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice, where you grab a book and turn to page 56 (or 56% of an ebook), find one or more interesting sentences (no spoilers), and post them.
Today I'm featuring a book I downloaded from the library.  Meet Your Baker is the first book in the new Bakeshop cozy mystery series . . .
Meet Your Baker 

Beginning:   They say it takes a while to recover your land legs after years spent at sea.  I sure hoped mine would come back soon.
It had been twenty-seven hours and forty-two minutes (not that I was counting) since I left the ship, my husband, and everything I'd known for the last ten years.
Page 56:  "She ran her hand up and down Andy's arm.  'I'm going to grab you a Kleenex.  Would you be willing to tell Juliet what you shared with me?'"
My thoughts: I'm always thrilled to discover a new cozy mystery series.  After seeing this one on many, many blogs, I thought I'd give it a try. 
Which book are you reading now or about to start?
