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:

Bones To Pick

A Brie Hooker Mystery #1

  by Linda Lovely



Genre: Cozy Mystery

My 56 from the Paperback

Always tickled me when Eva applied her “pusillanimous polecat” label. Took me back to childhood visits with  my aunts. I’d sit between them holding a big bowl of buttered popcorn as we watched DVDs of old-timey Westerns. Gabbey Hayes, who appeared as a sidekick in half the shoot-’em-ups, regularly worked “pusillanimous polecat” into his description of villains.

I do love my cozies and I’ve been wanting to read one of Linda Lovely’s books. This sounds so fun and that title and cover are adorable.


Read on if you want to know more.


Living on a farm with four hundred goats and a cantankerous carnivore isn’t among vegan chef Brie Hooker’s list of lifetime ambitions. But she can’t walk away from her Aunt Eva, who needs help operating her dairy. Once she calls her aunt’s goat farm home, grisly discoveries offer ample inducements for Brie to employ her entire vocabulary of cheese-and-meat curses. The troubles begin when the farm’s pot-bellied pig unearths the skull of Eva’s husband, who disappeared years back. The sheriff, kin to the deceased, sets out to pin the murder on Eva. He doesn’t reckon on Brie’s resolve to prove her aunt’s innocence. Death threats, ruinous pedicures, psychic shenanigans, and biker bar fisticuffs won’t stop Brie from unmasking the killer, even when romantic befuddlement throws her a curve.
