#BookBeginnings & #Friday56 -- The September Society

I found out quite by accident that the third book in the Charles Lenox Mystery Series by Charles Finch is set at Christmastime which will be perfect for my holiday read-a-thon this year! Of course, before I can do that, I have to read the second book -- The September Society. I've only just started, but I'm already loving it just like I loved the first one. Lenox and his cohorts from the first novel are back and as unassumingly wonderful as they were the first time around. When he mentions being bored because of no cases being had his best friend, Lady Jane, offers to rob a bank so he has something to do. When a case does potentially arrive on his doorstep, his medical examiner friend McConnell comes running -- even though all he knows about the case at the time is that there's a dead cat. I really love these people. Right now I don't care so much about the murders since there's a side story I'm dying to have sorted out ... but, as I've said, I've only just started.

As always, Friday56 (share a blurb from the 56th page or 56% mark) is hosted at Freda's Voice & Book Beginnings (share the first few sentences & your thoughts) is at Rose City Reader.


  1. This sounds like a very interesting series and one that I would enjoy. Great choice. Enjoy!

  2. That code completely mystifies me. I don't have that kind of brain. It sounds like you are having a great reading experience with this series. I'm numbers 13 & 14 on Freda's linky, come see my Friday 56s. Happy reading!

  3. What a creative and intriguing cover. Everything about the book appeals to me. Have a great weekend.

  4. Interesting cover and the snippet has me wondering about what they are trying to figure out. Happy Friday!

  5. I have the first in this series but haven't read it yet! I'm excited to hear that the 3rd is a Christmas-y mystery! I won't get them read this year but I'm putting them on my list for next year. Enjoy your reading! It sounds great.
