At Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader, you share the first line, and a few thoughts about the book.
Here's the beginning of the book I'm featuring today.
I've read a few of the earlier Inspector Lynley novels. I was going nicely, in order, and now I've skipped ahead to #20. Can't say I'm sorry though, I loved this one. It's an investigation into an apparent suicide - in a police holding cell - of a son of one of the constituents of the small town of Ludlow. But it's also a chance to see if Barbara Havers, who has clearly been in trouble, is up to the task, or at the end of her career; and why is the MP of Ludlow getting involved and asking through Scotland Yard?
At Freda's Voice, you'll find the Friday56, where the excerpt comes from page 56 or 56% in your Kindle.
Are you ever reading, and then you realise you're on page 56, and your eyes start dashing over the page, looking for a quote to share? Happens to me all the time - I love it.
This was an easy one - I loved the humour of the waiter in this small English town hotel. I can see his wry expression as he delivers the last line.
That opening brings back some memories. Strange names. LOL

This is a series I've always meant to start. Enjoy!
Sounds like fascinating characters!
Sounds good. I've never read this series. I should look for a copy of book 1. Mine is from The Point by John Dixon - a science fiction thriller from my review stack. Happy reading!
What names!! Sounds interesting! Happy weekend!
Great excerpt...love those names. I haven't yet read this author. I should!
Here's mine: “GHOSTED”
I haven't heard of this book or the series before. It looks interesting.
