Book Beginnings on Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader. Every Friday we share the first sentence (or so) of the book we’re currently reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
My Book Beginning:
Sam Fletcher sang, “Ohhh, jingle bells, shotgun shells___”
Phyliss Newsom shook her head and said, “Not that version, Sam. Have you no respext for the classics?”
My Thoughts: It doesn’t really say a whole lot other than letting you know it’s the time of year that people sing Christmas songs and that Sam and Phyliss have a different opinion about which version to sing.

My 56 (Also from The Candy Cane Cupcake Killer ):
She asked, “What about Nate’s riffle, Allyson?”
“I don’t know anything about it. I thought it was still in the guest-bedroom closet until the police came to look for it and didn’t find it. That’s where Nate always kept it.”
“Did you tell them that before they started looking?”
My Thoughts: We now know that Nate is a suspect and that Allyson doesn’t know as much as she thought she knew. This is a series I really enjoy though I’m really behind on reading the books – just too many books – which is of course a blessing and not a crime!
About The Candy Cane Cupcake Killer by Livia J. Washburn
In the latest from the national bestselling author of Trick or Deadly Treat, Phyllis Newsom returns with a festive Christmas recipe that’s to die for…
‘Tis the season in Weatherford, Texas, and everyone in town is gearing up for the annual holiday parade and tree-lighting ceremony in the town square, where Phyllis Newsom will be serving her much-anticipated candy cane cupcakes. Local rancher Barney McCrory manages to charm one away from her before the ceremony begins. But unfortunately, when the minty confection is finished, so is he.
This isn’t the first time someone has dropped dead after eating one of Phyllis’s treats. But when the paramedics determine the rancher was shot, suspicion swiftly falls on McCrory’s daughter and her husband—who both stand to reap some sweet rewards from his death. Though Phyllis doesn’t want to get mixed up in another murder investigation, something about this case doesn’t sit right with her. With a little help from a tabloid TV news crew, Phyllis must unwrap the truth and restore good cheer to Weatherford before it’s too late…
