Friday Book Find

I am so glad it's Friday. 

It means we get to link up with these wonderful blogs and share our favourite things - Books.

BookBeginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader, and The Friday 56 - hosted by Freda’s Voice are where you'll find them. Both involve sharing excerpts from a current book - the beginning and - you guessed it - page 56.

How beautiful is that cover? And I love the image of a cottage at the sea, that is built for little people. That is where Alice Lake and her three children live. Alice knows she has made poor life choices, so when a stranger shows up on the beach with no memory of how he got there, she is in a quandary.

Jo is Russ (the person talking to Lily)'s wife. She is mad that he is helping Lily out.
I raced through this book this week, so I have finished and reviewed it. It was a delight - such great characters, and clever plotting - who can you trust?

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

Happy reading everyone.

I haven't read anything by Lisa Jewell before but I've heard good things. I really like that first sentence - it's sort of cosy and atmospheric!
Here's my Friday Reads

Hi Bev,

I too, have never read anything by Lisa Jewell, but I think that is because the books I have always been made aware of, have either been too much 'chick lit' or 'rom com' for me.

Lisa seems to write across such a wide variety of genres, that it can be difficult to weed out the books like 'I Found You', which are much more to my liking and I which I would read in a flash, so thanks for sharing this one!

I also love the way in which you presented this post, with the lovely caption boxes :)

Thanks Yvonne. Thought my blog needed a refresh. And I'm really not very good at design, more interested in the words, but I tried. Thanks for noticing!

That 56 made me smile I can just see a Tupperware container being thrown at someone. Happy Friday!

This sounds like a book I would enjoy. Thanks for mentioning it. :-)

I have a couple of Lisa Jewell books waiting to be read. I think I'll be adding this one, as well! Thanks for sharing!

That cover and the setting would lure me in.

I've never read anything by this author. It does sound good. My pick this week is Stalking Ground by Margaret Mizushima - newly released mystery. Happy reading!

Catherine @ Book Club Librarian said...

This book sounds like a lovely read. Like you, I love the image of the cottage by the sea. Lisa Jewell is on my list of authors to read, and I hope to pick up one of her novels soon.
