Friday Books - Behind Closed Doors

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.

The champagne bottle knocks against the marble kitchen counter, making me jump. I glance at Jack, hoping he won't have noticed how nervous I am. He catches me looking and smiles.
'Perfect,' he says softly.

Here's my P56

So when I told him...that not only had I painted Fireflies myself but that I had created it by kissing the canvas hundreds of times wearing different shades of red lipstick, he lavished so many compliments on me that I was pleased I had managed to surprise him.

I've just started this book. So far, it's good. As it is a psychological thriller, I'm a little surprised that so far it's a happy, only-in-your-dreams type of love story. Not soppy, but you can tell from the excerpts - I keep waiting for the violin section to start up. 

Even so, something's off - I can tell. And I can't wait to find out what. I think I may pull an all nighter this evening!

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

Happy reading everyone.

I can't tell. Is the statement "Perfect", sweet or creepy? I'd read on to find out.

This one keeps on moving up on my TBR list. Only hear great things. I don't have a copy yet. Will need to make a plan! Hope you will have a great weekend Bev. Here's my Friday Meets:

The BB and the 56 seem to be from different books. I hope you and your readers will check out mine...

Neither of these are what I would have expected from a psychological thriller. It sounds interesting. I think I'd definitely be waiting for the other shoe to drop!

Creeptastic beginning, but I am intrigued by this art in the 56. I bet it looks neat! :-) Happy weekend!

I finally downloaded this book! I've been waiting for a long time to dive into it, so it won't be long. Thanks for sharing.

The beginning is creepy. Jack can't be a good guy if he's happy that she's nervous! I like books that start out with normal lives but drop little hints along the way that things aren't all rainbows and roses. This sounds like a good book.
My Friday post features THE REAL MOTHER.
