My book beginnings is taken from THE PARIS SECRET by Karen Swan:

"Clouds bearded the moon and the horizon was still inky, with every one of the world-famous lights turned off, save for the beacon at the top of the distinctive tower that distinguished the famous city even in the dark.  The two men moved unseen on the mansard roofs, keeping their heads below the ridge line, bodies curled inwards like autumn leaves, their stealthy footsteps no more than the mere padding of cats to the sleeping inhabitants of the apartments below."

  4. I just discovered the Seven Days of Us yesterday. I made a note for our book club. We like to find relatively light holiday reads for Decemeber. Do you think this one fits the bill?

    1. Sort of light, but there are some issues.

      My review will be up on November 7 if you want to wait to see what you think.
