I wish I could say I have a truly frightening book that would fit right in with the holiday for this week's Book Beginning and Friday 56. But I don't.
But I do have a book that hasn't been released yet. It will be out on Tuesday, and you can watch for my review on that date. The book is Suede to Rest by Diane Vallere. I've actually already finished it, and I really enjoyed it.
This is the first in a new series, and the entire thing starts like this:
A breeze rippled through the trees to the left and the right of the storefront. I stood across the street, taking in the blacked-out windows and the once-magnificent sign now covered in bird poop, decades of grime, and spray-painted curse words.
From page 56, we find:
"I need to use your phone." I snatched Ken's cell from his hand before he had a chance to say no and dialed Carson's number from memory. I'd cycled through most of the entry-level curse words by the time he answered and was contemplating a couple of new ones.
There you have it. As I said, review will be up on Tuesday, the day the book is released.
