Book Beginnings on Fridays/The Friday 56 - July 10th

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'm hoping to read this one soon. It sounds really good.



Clients trust me because I blend in. It's a natural skill - my gift, if you like. I focus my lens and capture stories, like the ones unfolding tonight: natural and guarded expressions, self-conscious poses, joyous smiles, reluctant ones from a teenage bridesmaid, watched in silver and bloodred. The groom is an old friend, yet I've only met his now-wife twice. She seems reserved, hard to get to know, but in their wedding album she'll glow. The camera does not lie. My role is to take these lies and spin them into the perfect story.

From 56% on my Kindle...

I'm desperate to escape for a bit. As we walk to the local pub, I can't shake off the sense that I'm being watched.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Two women. A dying wish. And a web of lies that will bring their world crashing down.

Two women. A dying wish. And a web of lies that will bring their world crashing down.

Nina and Marie were best friends—until Nina was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Before she died, Nina asked Marie to fulfill her final wishes.

But her mistake was in thinking Marie was someone she could trust.

What Nina didn’t know was that Marie always wanted her beautiful life, and that Marie has an agenda of her own. She’ll do anything to get what she wants.

Marie thinks she can keep her promise to her friend’s family on her own terms. But what she doesn’t know is that Nina was hiding explosive secrets of her own…
