My book beginnings is taken from AS BRIGHT AS HEAVEN by Susan Meissner:

 
"Morning light shimmers on the apricot horizon as I stand at the place where my baby boy rests.  Stouthearted chickadees are singing in the day, just like they have done every other winter's dawn, but when this same sun sets tonight, I will be miles away from them, and inside an unfamiliar house."

  4. So many lovely books! I enjoyed the Nicci French (mine had a different title), The Wife Between Us, and A Dangerous Crossing. I definitely want The Woman in the Window.

    As for As Bright as Heaven, I am intrigued. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “SNAP JUDGMENT”

  6. I have Sisters Like Us and The English Life coming on on my list. I'm a big Lauren Willig fan so I'm really excited about that one! Meissner is an author I've been wanting to read and this sounds like a great one!
