Friday Memes: Dead and Breakfast by Kate Kingsbury

Happy Friday everybody!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City ReaderThe Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

The paper covering the bedroom walls was a dull beige, with green ferns and brown spots that could have been pinecones or hand grenades, depending on what frame of mind you were in. Melanie West's frame of mind was definitely leaning toward the grenades.
Friday 56 (56%):
Liza smiled. "I'm worried about you. I know how much this means to you. I just don't want you to have any more big disappointments."
This week I am reading Dead and Breakfast by Kate Kingsbury. I received this eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Here is the description from Amazon:
Melanie West is getting her life back on track after a messy divorce when her grandmother, Liza Harris, asks her to open a B&B with her. Together, Liza and Melanie purchase a purportedly haunted mansion on the Oregon coast and jump right into clearing out the cobwebs. But while attempting to remove wallpaper in an upstairs bedroom, the new B&B owners stumble upon a very real skeleton in their closet.

The police suspect the skeleton is that of the wife of the previous owner of the B&B, but no one in town seems to want to say much about her. As the inn owners try to juggle renovations with their own amateur investigations, their grand opening looms closer and closer--and a friendly ghost in their walls starts playing tricks. But it all comes crashing to a halt when a new body is found stabbed to death on the beach below the inn--the victim chillingly close in resemblance to Melanie herself.

It seems someone doesn't appreciate newcomers prying into the small town's past, and now it's up to Melanie and Liza to get to the bottom of these murders to save their business...and their lives.


  1. Second time seeing this book for the 56! :-) Happy weekend!
    (I added this one to the Linky too.)

  2. Already have this one on my list. Pine cones or grenades, depending on their mood. Sounds like me. LOL
