My book beginnings is taken from NOT THAT I COULD TELL by Jessica Strawser:


"Ever wonder what your friends really think of you?  I take a lot of care in my appearance, for instance.  I'm a small-town doctor's wife, so I need to look the part--even it I don't feel the part."

  2. I like the beginning of this one though I feel a bit sorry for the speaker. The Recipe Box is on my TBR. It sounds wonderful!

    1. She does sound sad.

      I am about 50% done with the book and am enjoying it.

      THE RECIPE BOX was fantastic.

  4. Interesting beginning. I don't pay too much attention to appearance. Now, smells, I do. This week I have Final Siege by Scarlett Cole. Happy reading!

      My Book Beginnings is a mystery. I am still guessing, and I am 50% through. :)
