Book Beginnings - 11/21/14

*Please join Rose City Reader every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. 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 THE BRACELET by Dorothy Love.

"At the sound of male voices in the entry hall below, Celia Browning left her window overlooking the garden and the redbrick carriage house.  She set aside her book and opened her bedroom door just wide enough to afford a view of the door the  her father's study down below."

THE BRACELET is set in Savannah during the 1800's and is a mystery.  You also get to share in the Southern charm of that time and see how the wealthy lived.

I finished THE BRACELET last night.  I always write my reviews as I read so my review was ready to go, and the link to my review is in the book's title above and at the top of the post.

A book I wanted to share from last week.

A Woman's Choice by Annie Thomas.

It was a lovely read with a wonderful main character.

My review is in the book's title.


  1. Happy Friday!!

    ENJOY your weekend of reading.

  2. Ditto the Happy Friday. I love your blog header. This book is not for me, but thanks for sharing.

  3. Both The Bracelet and A Woman's Choice sound like excellent books. I like the Savannah setting in The Bracelet. It would be fun to learn more about the history of that beautiful city.
    My Friday post features a legal thriller: BODILY HARM.

  4. It was more about the Southern families than the city itself. The book did mention a few places.

    I did enjoy the book.

    Thanks for stopping, Sandra.

  5. Thanks for stopping, sherry fundin.

    Thanks about the blog header. It was taken when I was in Portree, Scotland. Loved that place.

  6. I love good historical fiction, and both of these sound interesting. Lovely covers, too. Thanks for sharing them.

  9. Thanks, JLS Hall for stopping.

  11. She was trying to hear what her father and his business associates were discussing.

    Thanks for stopping, Laura.
