Book Beginnings on Fridays/The Friday 56 - June 24th

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 has been on my Kindle for awhile.  I love cruises and haven't been on one in a few years, so I thought this would be the next best thing.

First Chapter

Adrianne Chrisander had her life planned out for her before she was born.  She didn't find out about it until she was twenty five.

From 56% on my Kindle...

"Which would explain why he's now targeting cruise ships," said Adrianne.

Synopsis from Amazon:

Adrianne Chrisander inherited a small cruise line from a great uncle she hadn't seen since she was two. Exciting, huh? But there were problems..

Somebody was occupying the Owner's Cabin on The Cosmos Calypso, and the crew seemed to think he was their new boss. Who was he? What was his game?

And was the famous Contessa Cosmetica owner Sylvie Marconi telling the truth about the theft of her fabulous rejuvenating skin cream, or did she stage the incident for publicity?

Adrianne and her friend Carol needed to get to the bottom of it all before the reputation of The Cosmos Cruise Line was severely damaged!

What do you think?  What are you sharing today?


  1. That opening definitely makes me want to read more. Hope you enjoy your virtual cruise.

  2. I do love the excerpts and the sound of this one!

  3. Sounds like a good read! Happy weekend!
