Anyway, we are here for this week's Book Beginning and Friday 56.
This week, I'm featuring City of Scoundrels by Victoria Thompson.
This is the third Counterfeit Lady novel and takes us to New York City in 1918. I finished it earlier this week and really enjoyed it.
Anyway, this is how the book begins:
"I hate this stupid war!" Elizabeth cried in frustration.
And if you can't understand that sentiment on page one, you certainly will by the time you finish the book.
Meanwhile, over on page 56, we find:
Elizabeth blinked furiously, determined not to cry as she rushed up the stairs to the one room into which she knew Gideon would not follow her.
The book comes out on Tuesday, and I will be hosting a review and giveaway on Thursday, so please come back for my full review.
Until then, enjoy the first weekend of November.
