Friday Book Tail

On Fridays I participate in BookBeginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader, and The Friday 56 - hosted by Freda’s Voice. Both involve sharing excerpts from a current book - the beginning and - you guessed it - page 56.

This week's book-

Click the cover for the Goodreads blurb.



Beginning:
Any noise in the night could wake him now. Eight weeks since the birth of his daughter and Harry barely remembered how it felt to sleep for seven hours straight and wake naturally, refreshed and ready for a new day. All the warnings from their friends about the misery of sleep deprivation had turned out to be spot on.


Here's my 56%
‘To my mind it means one of two things. Either you’re lying to me and not passing on his messages, or, for some reason, he isn’t able to communicate.’ She paused to let this sink in, and saw him nodding gravely.


It's about new parents Alice and Harry French who wake in the middle of the night to find masked intruders in their bedroom. When I was in that sleep-deprived state, and anything other than my baby woke me, I could be grumpy for days. Maybe even murder someone?

I love a gripping read, and haven't read one for a while now. My brain is ready to be twisted around a plot, my heart is ready to beat for some characters in death-defying situations, and my body is in the mood to lie around reading all day until I'm done. Don't know if I'll get that right this weekend, but it's certainly worth a try.

Tell me what you're reading, and I'll pay you a visit. Happy reading everyone.

This sounds interesting - and I'm not sure what I would do if I woke up to masked people in my room. Thanks for visiting my Friday meme
