My book beginnings is taken from SUNDAY SILENCE by Nicci French:

 
"All at once the flat was full of noises.  The phone rang, stopped, then rang again.  The mobile rattled on the table.  The doorbell sounded once, twice, and at the same time there was a thumping sound on the door itself."

  2. I loved the latest Nicci French book; the one I read was entitled Sunday Morning Coming Down. I got excited for a minute...but knew there wouldn't be two "Sunday" books. Sigh.

    I enjoyed A Dangerous Crossing..and want to get The Woman in the Window.

    Here's mine: “A SEASON TO LIE”

  6. Carnegie's Maid caught my eye. I like the premise of exploring historical figures from a different lens.

    Sunday doesn't sound very silent in the quote.
