September 2nd's Book Beginning and Friday 56

It's Friday.  And for me, it's a short Friday leading into a long weekend.  Can't wait to get started.  But first, here's this week's Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week, I'm highlighting Whispers Beyond the Veil, the first in a new series by Jessica Estevao.

This is a historical mystery that also features elements of the paranormal.  While paranormal isn't normally my first choice, I really did enjoy it.  My full review with giveaway will be up on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, here's how the book started:

There stood my father, up on the makeshift stage.

And from page 56, we get this:

"For an Aquarius today I would predict a slight head injury, an attempted robbery, and a rescue by a handsome policeman."

Short and to the point today.

I hope you have a great weekend, and if you are in America, I hope you have a great long weekend.


  1. Thanks for the weekend wishes. When I first glanced at the cover it made me think of Mary Poppins. LOL Normall the cover would turn me off, but I do like your 56.
