YOUR BOOK BEGINNING



 MY BOOK BEGINNING



"The things I do for the Church of England," Tom murmured, thinking he might as well have shouted it aloud.

-- Ten Lords A-Leaping by C. C. Benison. Just what is he up to on behalf of the church?

This is the third book in Benison's Father Tom Christmas series.  I haven't read the first two, but this one looks terrific and now I want to start from the beginning of the series.

I like the sound of this one!

Mark Baker said...

I've read good things about the series, but I haven't read it. It's somewhere on my radar to potentially read at some point.

This is the first time I have joined in. I had to cheat and use a few sentences. If I just used the first one, my post would have been ... "DUSK."

Enigmatic I suppose but it doesn't exactly draw you in.

I love classic mysteries so I will have to check C.C. Benison out.

My mom is in the hospital and things are crazy around here, but wanted to wish everyone a happy Friday and Book Beginnings fun.

I wasn't able to "rustle" up a post.
