Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. We share the first sentence and whatever thoughts of impressions it provokes. For the Friday 56, hosted by Freda’s Voice, we share a few lines from either page 56 or 56%.

 

Opening Line:

Hello there!

Winter in Whitby and here I am. Up to my eyeballs in hard work and intrigue.

 

Page 56:

“And I love this week’s book.” Leena laughs. “I love the very idea of Qab! A world were the women rule! And everyone obeys the Warrior Queen! And all the silly men are just slaves! Fantastic! How brilliant is that?”

 

Book Summary: 

Something is biting people on the streets of Whitby. In an ordinary town, this would be worrying. Here, it’s disastrous, and only Brenda has guessed why. She’s also trying to prepare for a packed festive break at her B&B, but her best friend Effie is in distracted mood: she just hasn’t been the same since her suave gentleman friend Alucard reappeared.

Meanwhile, Penny has joined a book group in the new mystery bookstore, the Spooky Finger. As she is drawn into the strange and fantastic works of Edwardian lady novelist Beatrice Mapp, she makes some very surprising discoveries. Discoveries that will soon impact upon the lives of all the ladies of Whitby. When unexpected help from the shadows of the past arrives to illuminate the dangers awaiting them all, Brenda realises that unless she can find a way to save Effie, the consequences may be eternal.

  1. This could be a really fun book, but from the quotes and the summary it sounds very… busy. Maybe even cluttered. I don’t know the author, so he might be able to mash all the things together and write a great book, but it sounds confusing to try to explain the plot.
