Book Beginnings on Fridays/The Friday 56 - January 17th

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.

I just started reading this one.


The money was running out. Lisa Hodges sighed as she sat at her kitchen island and looked over the month-to-date transactions in her checking account. How did it disappear so quickly? She couldn't remember the last time she'd bought herself new clothes, and she'd cut way back on going out to dinner with friends. But living on Nantucket was expensive, especially now that her husband Brian was gone - food, cable, insurance, it all added up too fast.

From 56% on my e-reader...

"Well, they say you always find someone when you're not looking. Though, I'm not sure if that's true or not."


  1. I love the cover and snippets. Sounds like an emotional read, but a great one! Happy weekend!

  2. This sounds really good! Such a beautiful cover. I'd love to be sitting on that porch! I'd love for you and your readers to check out mine . . .

  3. I would love to go to Nantucket some day. I have never been the to Northeast, as a matter of fact, unless New York counts. My Friday quotes from NORMAL PEOPLE
