Friday Quotes, March 24, 2016

Book Beginnings on Friday is hosted by Rose City ReaderShare the opening quote from the book.
The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's VoiceFind a quote from page 56.

Check out the links for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Participants don't select their favorite, coolest, or most intellectual books, they just use the one they are currently reading. This is the book I'm reading right now:

Book Title: Girl Waits With Gun by Amy Stewart

Book Beginnings:
Our troubles began the summer of 1914, the year I turned thirty-five. The Archduke of Austria had just been assassinated, the Mexicans were revolting, and absolutely nothing was happening at our house, which explains why all three of us were riding to Paterson on the most trivial of errands.

Friday 56:
I had made one small miscalculation in confronting Mr. Kaufman and brought a little trouble our way as a result.

Comment: The book is based on a real story about a woman who became the first female deputy sheriff. So far I am enjoying it.

    1. I am enjoying the book so far (I am just a few pages past 56) but I already know the book is part of a series, which is causing me some distress. Will it not wrap up in this volume?

    1. I am reading it for one of my book clubs. The book showed up on someone's "Best of 2015" list, so I hope it is good.

  3. I bet it was more than a little trouble:) I love the title and cover. Looks so noirish!

    1. Yes, it does seem that the characters are careening toward big trouble with Mr. Kaufman, a thug.

  4. I hope you are enjoying the story. I'm interested and eager to hear what you think. I am spotlighting Mind Magic by Eileen Wilks - the latest in an urban fantasy series I like. Happy reading!
