The Bodies in the Library by Marty Wingate: Book Beginning

The Bodies in the Library (First Edition Library Mystery, #1)
The Bodies in the Library by Marty Wingate, October 2019, Berkley/Penguin Random House

Book beginning:
"I'll be leaving now, Ms. Burke."
I leapt up from the desk at this announcement -  knocking the phone on the floor in the process - and hurried out of my office.
"Yes, Mrs. Woolgar," I said, tugging on my jacket. "Have a lovely evening."

Page 56:
"Yes, that's right. I saw her late one afternoon -- running."

It does make you wonder and want to read more, even from the P56 sentence!

Here's my Friday Post. Happy weekend!

I love mysteries this time of year - the cozier the better! I've been pretty bad about visiting my BBOF buddies, so thanks for always playing along! I've been slammed at work. But now that I have finally gotten my new law partner on board and our "rebrand" finished, I hope to have more time to spend with my blog.
