Book Beginnings on Fridays/The Friday 56 - November 12th

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.  The excerpts are from the E-ARC.

First Chapter

Holliday, Oregon, was at its most beautiful in the fall.  Vine maples as richly red as the local pinot noirs, the licking orange and gold flames of oak and birch leaves turning as autumn burst across the Williamette Valley in all its customary unsubtle glory.

From 56% on my Kindle...

Eden was a woman falling in love, looking toward a future filled with promise.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Is she the one

who can bring new love into his darkened heart?

As a new landlord, Dr. Gideon Bowen is more irritating than ingratiating. Eden Berman should probably consider moving. But in the spirit of the holidays—and curiosity about Gideon and his enigmatic past—Eden offers her friendship instead. As their relationship ignites, it’s clear that Gideon is more mensch than menace. With each candle of Hanukkah burning brighter, can Eden light his way to love?

What do you think?  What are you sharing today?


  1. This sounds like the perfect read for this time of year. Have a great weekend!

  2. This does sound adorable, and perfect for the season, although I don't know if I could be forgiving, even romantic, towards a bad landlord xD I hope you enjoy this one and that you have a lovely weekend :)

  7. This sounds wonderful and I love the setting.
