Book Beginnings: A Crime of Passion Fruit by Ellie Alexander

BOOK BEGINNINGS ON FRIDAYS

THANKS FOR JOINING ME ON FRIDAYS FOR BOOK BEGINNING FUN!

Sorry I didn't get this posted yesterday! I was in court in Montana and it completely slipped my mind. It's been that kind of crazy week!

MY BOOK BEGINNING



They say that the heart is like the ocean; its rhythm shifting with the sand on the shore.

A Crime of Passion Fruit by Ellie Alexander. This latest Bakeshop Mystery finds Jules Capshaw, the owner of the Torte cafe, taking her talents for desserts and crime solving on the high seas.

Ellie Alexander's series is perfect for summer! Read my author interview of Ellie here, and more about Ellie and her books here.





Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

EARLY BIRDS & SLOWPOKES: This weekly post goes up Thursday evening for those who like to get their posts up and linked early on. But feel free to add a link all week.

FACEBOOK: Rose City Reader has a Facebook page where I post about new and favorite books, book events, and other bookish tidbits, as well as link to blog posts. I'd love a "Like" on the page! You can go to the page here to Like it. I am happy to Like you back if you have a blog or professional Facebook page, so please leave a comment with a link and I will find you.

TWITTER, ETC: If you are on Twitter, Instagram, Google+, or other social media, please post using the hash tag #BookBeginnings. I try to follow all Book  Beginnings participants on whatever interweb sites you are on, so please let me know if I have missed any and I will catch up.

TIE IN: The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice is a natural tie in with this event and there is a lot of cross over, so many people combine the two. The idea is to post a teaser from page 56 of the book you are reading and share a link to your post. Find details and the Linky for your Friday 56 post on Freda’s Voice.

Hi Gilion,

I think as bloggers, we really should stop beating ourselves up if we don't post as often, or as on time as we should. After all, for most of us this is simply a hobby and for many, day jobs have to take priority, as much as we might wish otherwise!

I don't read too many 'cozy' mysteries, but I do like to have one or two on my Kindle 'just in case'. Based on that opening line and the excellent ratings and reviews on Goodreads, this is definitely one well worth keeping in reserve!

Thanks for sharing and have a relaxing weekend :)

No worries about the post.

I always LOVE the titles and covers on Cozy Mysteries, but I rarely read them. I just don't have time, but have fun with the titles and covers.

Thanks for sharing, and have a great weekend.

No problem.

I really like that opening sentence! The Bakeshop Mystery series is new to me, but they sound great.
