November 18th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

Here it is - Friday!  And you know what that means, time for this week's Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week's book is Paint the Town Dead by Sybil Johnson.

Are you looking for a book that jumps right into the action?  This book is definitely for you.  Here's the opening:

The rock crashed through the window, barely missing Rory Anderson's head, and slammed into the bookcase behind her.

Yep, that definitely got my attention.

I'm cheating a little with the Friday 56 this week.  I'm going with the Friday 57 because I liked this paragraph that closes out a chapter best, and it happens to be on page 57:

Rory pressed her ear to the door and listened.  A faint sound of reminiscent of a drawer sliding open came from behind the locked door.  "Someone's inside."  She slipped the key card in the lock and turned the handle.

I actually finished the book yesterday, and I will be reviewing it on Tuesday.  I hope you'll stop back by and see what I thought.

And I hope you have a great weekend.


  1. I read it and am curious to see what you think. Have a great weekend.

  3. That got my attention too! This sounds so good and I pretty much trust anything that comes from Henery.

  4. Yup. You got me with that beginning too! :-D
    Happy weekend!

  5. The cover grabbed my attention! I sort of longing to go to a beach....
