Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader.
Here's the beginning of the book I'm featuring today.
The instant Rowena Cooper stepped out of her warm cookie-scented kitchen and saw the two men standing in her back hallway, snow melting from the rims of their boots, she knew exactly what this was: her own fault.
I loved that opening - it drew me right in, even though I'm sure it's not her fault. This page-turner of note has me up late at night, willing my eyes to stay open for one more chapter. The link on the cover will take you to the goodreads blurb.
At Freda's Voice, you'll find the Friday56, where the excerpt comes from page 56 or 56% in your Kindle.
Here's an excerpt from page 56 of The Killing Lessons by Saul Black.
The quote is actually on p57, but I loved it so thought I'd cheat - a little. I'm also enjoying the writing - it's not often you want to quote from crime thrillers, but there you are.
What are you reading this weekend? I'd love to visit your blog and check it out.
I love the excerpts...and now I want to read more. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.
What a lovely and true 56. That beginning though pulled me right in!!! Sounds like a great read! I am grateful for your participation every week. Happy Canadian Thanksgiving weekend!
Great excerpts! Adding this book to my wish list.
I like both excerpts too. This sounds like a great thriller. This week I am featuring A Crafter Knits a Clue by Holly Quinn from my review stack. Happy reading!
That is such a gripping beginning! I am definitely intrigued to know more about what happened. I hope that you enjoy it. :)
Hope you'll get a satisfying ending for all your late nights with this one!
He went somewhere without a book? Eek, that would do me in!
I quite like that 56 (57) quote. Enjoy your weekend!
Sounds good! Happy reading. :)
