April 13th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

It's time for this week's Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week, I'm featuring a thriller - True Fiction by Lee Goldberg

I actually have already finished this book.  It's a very fun, very fast read.  I'll be reviewing it next Thursday.

The first sentence really gives you a great idea of the tone of the book.

The assassin wore only a Speedo and his lean body was slathered with sunscreen that made him smell like a baked coconut.

Meanwhile, we get this exchange from page 56:

"I'm sensing a little hostility," Ian said.
"Gee, you think?"  She shook her head, obviously dismayed by how clueless he was.  "I totally get why someone wants to kill you."

As I said, completely fun.  Come back for my full review on Thursday to find out why you need to read this book.

In the meantime, have a great weekend.


  1. It seems like an interesting story. Thanks for mentioning it. :-)

  2. This does sound like fun. I've read one of the books he co-wrote with Janet Evanovich and it sounds like he's an author I need to add to my list. This week I am featuring Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs - a new one by a favorite author. Happy reading!

  3. LOL It sounds brilliant! Happy weekend!

  4. Sounds like a lot of fun. Have a good weekend! :)
