It’s that simple.

I’m also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It’s hosted by Rose City Reader

I haven’t started this one yet, but it’s next on my list to read and review.  I haven’t read all the books in this series, yet, but I’ve been wanting to read them.  The excerpts are from the E-ARC.

First Chapter
I awoke to the sound of chirping and saw a goldfinch perched on the outside ledge of my bedroom window, his yellow body brightening the gloomy overcast sky that served as his background.  I slipped out of bed as carefully as I could, trying not to frighten him away.  But it was no use.  Birds are sensitive to motion, and he flew off. 

From 56% on my Kindle…

Grady noticed and asked, “What have you two got going on?”

Our simultaneous one-word response, “Nothing,” made him only more suspicious.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Jessica is delighted when her nephew Grady invites her to spend a few days with his family in an oceanside New York bungalow. She packs her bags and heads down to the city, ready to spend some quality time with Grady, his wife, Donna, and their young son, Frank.

But the morning after Jessica’s arrival, Donna finds her boss dead on a tennis court, and Jessica’s dreams of a relaxing visit are quashed. Everyone in the small beachside community is a suspect, and the local authorities—headed by an old colleague of Cabot Cove sheriff Mort Metzger—have asked that no one leave town. Will Jessica be able find a killer and salvage the rest of her trip?
