Welcome to The Friday 56 hosted by Freda’s Voice.


This is a really fun meme!

The only rules are to grab a book (any book), turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader and find a sentence or a few (no spoilers) that grabs you and post it.

Then go over to Freda’s Voice and leave your link so we can visit your 56!

My 56 for this week is from

Braking For Bodies

  The Cycle Path Mysteries #2

by Duffy Brown


Genre: Cozy Mystery

My 56 from the paperback.

“…she was singing show tunes at the grand piano in the lobby just a few minutes ago. Now she’s got her yoga mat and doing downward dog on the front porch, her skinny butt pointing due east, and the male population around here is having heart palpitations.”

I had to share part of this scene. It’s about Idle Summers, and she cracks me up.

Watch for my review in April.

Read on if you want to know more.



Evie Bloomfield puts the pedal to the metal—in the latest Cycle Path mystery from the national bestselling author of Geared for the Grave.

Moving from Los Angeles to small, picturesque Mackinac Island to work in a bike shop might seem crazy, but Evie knows it’s the best decision she’s ever made. That’s not to say she’s gotten rid of all her stress; after all, the upcoming Lilac Festival has everyone in town riding in circles.

But things really go downhill when a ferry full of tourists—including Evie’s friend Fiona’s former boss, the editor of a sleazy rag in LA—arrives on the island. No one knows why Peephole Perry came all the way to Mackinac, but things aren’t looking good for Fiona when Peep is found dead. Now Evie has to gear up and get a grip on the truth if she wants to clear her friend’s name…



I love the clever title for the book and series. Did you get that – Cycle Path? So fun! And a perfect summer read.
