April 3rd's Book Beginning and Friday 56

It's Good Friday and time again for Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week's book is the first in a new series - The Readaholics and the Falcon Fiasco by Laura DiSilverio.




The book actually comes out on Tuesday, but I am reading it for review next Friday.  Yes, I'm working a bit ahead.  But if you come back then, I'll have a giveaway as well.  It's a great book, at least so far.  I'm almost 2/3 of the way through and loving it.

And here's how it begins:

The white suit was a bad idea.  I knew it when I bought it at the outlet mall, but it was 75 percent off and the A-line skirt disguised the extra ten pounds that tend to cling to my thighs.  I knew it when I put it on, but the forecast was for an unseasonable ninety degrees in Heaven, Colorado.

I'm going to cheat a little on the 56 and actually take something from page 55.  Page 56 is description and setting up the next scene.  Not a bad page, but nothing teaser worthy.  However, on page 55, we get this:

The [person] I'd known for almost twenty years would never have killed herself, and I was going to prove it.  Somehow.

That's it for this week.  Have a wonderful Easter weekend.

    1. I was already familiar with the author, but that title really grabbed me as well.

  4. Intriguing 56! I have a thing for falcons, (Peregrines'), as they pass over my house regularly.
    Happy Easter weekend!

    1. In this case, the falcon refers to The Maltese Falcon, which the club is reading at the beginning of the book.

    2. I've definitely seen white turn out to be a bad idea in the past. Yet I still wear white shirts.
