Book Beginnings on Fridays/The Friday 56 - January 11th

This is a fun meme to do hosted by Freda's Voice. If you'd like to join on the fun go to The Friday 56.

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Link it here.

It's that simple.

I'm also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It's hosted by Rose City Reader.

This week's teaser comes from the E-ARC...Since I posted the beginning on my Tuesday post, I'm adding to the Beginnings for this post.


The piercing sound of the phone startled Celia Ewing awake. With a feeling of dread, she fumbled for her cell on the night table.

"Celia." A female voice squeaked like a trapped mouse.

"Marcy? What's going on?" Celia propped herself up on an elbow and checked on her nightstand. It was nearly 3:00 a.m.

"Um, big problem here. I need help." Marcy's voice sounded squished.

Celia heard a wheezing intake of breath, and a guttural outtake.

"Marcy, honey, should I call 911?"

Friday 56...

From page 56 on my Kindle...

"I know.  There's a message on my machine from the police that I've avoided returning."
