Book Beginnings - 1/29/16

*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.

My book beginnings is taken from FLIGHT OF DREAMS by Ariel Lawhon:


"It's a bad idea, don't you think?"  Emilie asks, standing inside the kitchen door, propping it open with her foot.  "Striking a match in here?  You could blow us all to oblivion."

I am looking forward to reading FLIGHT OF DREAMS.  Ms. Lawhon's first book was quite good.

THE WIFE, THE MAID, AND THE MISTRESS is based on a true event as is FLIGHT OF DREAMS. 

I finished this book Wednesday night at 1:30 a.m. - I couldn't put it down.   :)


MISSING PIECES was a guess-right-until-the-end mystery.

My review will be on my blog on February 1.



  1. I hope Flight of Dreams is as good as the two other books I have finished so far in January.

    Thanks for stopping everyone.

  2. Love the Flight of Dreams cover! Sounds like it will be a good book. Missing Pieces is on my TBR too, glad to hear it's a great read!!

    1. I am hoping it isn't strictly technical.

      Her first book was terrific.

      Missing Pieces is really good.

      ENJOY when you read Missing Pieces.

      As I mentioned, I just hope it isn't going to be too technical.

  6. The beginning takes us right into an interesting conversation that also calls for our curiosity. :)
