Please remember to include the title of the book and the author's name.  *Taken directly from Rose City Reader's Blog Page.

***************
This week's book beginnings comes from A KILLING AT THE CREEK by Nancy Allen.

"The bloody, yellow school bus wound through the hills of the Missouri Ozarks in the early dawn of a June morning. The blood inside the bus pooled under the driver's feet, trickled in the aisle, drained out the back exit, and ran over the rear bumper."

Catching your eye?  :)

This book is one I finished last week wanted to share again this week.

My review is up TODAY, March 6. It is the top post on my blog for the day.

MIST OF MIDNIGHT by Sandra Byrd.  An alluring, gothic mystery.

  3. Although that's a terrific opening, A Killing at the Creek sounds too gory for me. I think I'd like Mist of Midnight better!
    My Friday post features WILLOW VALE.

    1. It really isn't that gory, Sandra.

      It is more about a juvenile being accused of the crime. Well..that's what I have experienced so far.

      THANKS for stopping. Yes...Mist of Midnight is goo.
