Friday 56

The Friday 56 is an awesome meme hosted by the lovely Freda! This is one that I forget to participate in, and then kick myself when I realize it’s Saturday and I missed it lol. I will not miss it this time. 😉 Make sure to click the banner above to check out other posts and link up your post for The Friday 56.

I am currently reading Teacup Turbulence by Linda O. Johnston for an upcoming blog tour. From page 56 in the paperback version:

“I didn’t want . . . Smell her breath.”

Brooke did. “Hell, was she poisoned? It smells like almonds–and I’ve always heard that’s the scent of cyanide.”

Los Angeles animal shelter manager Lauren Vancouver has a soft spot for animals in need—and a keen eye for crime. . .

Thanks to a savvy ad campaign featuring teacup pups sporting HotPets Bling—a new line of faux jewelry dog collars—small dog adoptions have skyrocketed across the city. So when Lauren discovers a shelter in the Midwest with more toy dogs than it can handle, she arranges a private plane to swoop in and fly the pups back to LA.

But Lauren didn’t count on rescue worker Teresa Kantrim coming along for the ride. Teresa has cared for the dogs since they were found and doesn’t trust anyone from La-La Land to take over the job. Her biting comments clearly haven’t earned Teresa any new friends, but when she turns up murdered, it’s time for Lauren to dig into Teresa’s past and find out who wanted her put down.

    It’s a wonder any mystery reader ever eats almond-flavored anything. 😀

    This seems like a book I’d enjoy.

  • Don’t fret, you can participate in the 56 anytime. At the top of the blog is the page button for the 56 Linky. It stays open until Thursday night the following week just for late bloomers. 🙂 You are welcome to post later, though I understand if you prefer on that day.
    Smelly almond breath is a scent of cyanide poisoning? Really?? Who knew?!
    Happy weekend!

    • Oh, I didn’t know the Linky stayed up. Woohoo! Thanks for letting me know. 🙂 Have a great weekend!
