Book Beginnings on Fridays/The Friday 56 - August 13th

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 going to start this one soon.  It looks good.

First Chapter

"Will you be done anytime today, Miss?"

Naomi gasped, and turned to find a man scowling at her impatiently.  "I think the idea of queues is so you can wait your turn," she snapped back.

From 56% on my Kindle...

Naomi's heart stopped briefly.  What was he doing?

Synopsis from Amazon:

A young man comes to Florida with a tie to his past, and the promise of an American dream.

A young girl with bright eyes and a quirky personality clashes into him at a shopping mall.

At first, their meeting is marked by slight dislike and indifference, and then they are both swept up in a journey of razor-sharp wit and Asian cuisine. That journey is threatened by the shadow of doubt and insecurity, but in the end, love wins.

Along with a promise, a promise he had every intention to keep.

A promise was where it all started.

This is a prequel to the heartwarming and wholesome romance book Starting Over, that will take you away on a beautiful trip to the white sandy beaches of Thailand where true love is possible and anyone can start a new life. With magnificent beach settings and characters that will capture your heart right away, the Coastal Holiday Series is one you won’t be able to put down.
