the friday 56


Rules: 

*Grab a book, any book. 

*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you have to improvise, that's ok.) 

*Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it) 

*Post it. 


I'm still reading Harbour Street (Vera Stanhope #6) but I'll finish it today


From Chapter 24:

Kate was drinking coffee in the kitchen with Stuart when there was a knock at the door, so loud that she jumped and felt an irrational surge of fear.  They'd had a lazy morning.  George Enderby had come to the dining room for breakfast as usual and then had disappeared.  The kids were out.  The house was still and quiet; it rarely was, and she thought that in the future their life could be like this, peaceful and easy.  Then there was the knock at the door and Stuart looked up from the newspaper on his lap, frowning. "Shall I go?"

  1. I have heard great things about Ann Cleeves's books. I love the opening. I admit I'm always startled when someone knocks on my door. Everyone in the house freezes for a minute trying to remember what we are supposed to do. LOL

    I hope you have a great weekend!
