BOOKISH FRIDAY......

Friday, my favorite day of the week...

I started a new book yesterday...Green Lake by S. K. Epperson










Synopsis
The suicide of Madeleine Heron’s husband leaves her at her sister’s lake house for the summer, until she can ‘sort things out’ for herself and find a new direction, but life in the lake community is anything but conducive to calm. Right away a three year old girl goes missing from the dam, Madeleine is nearly assaulted when her truck breaks down, and she discovers her neighbors have an affinity for digging holes and burying things in their yard, usually things they find floating in the lake, like a hand, or an arm… Native American conservation officer Eris Renard appears to be the only sane person around, and without warning Madeleine finds herself falling for him, but he’s an adopted Indian who’s just found his birth mother, a famous artist who hates Madeleine.(Amazon)

BOOK BEGINNING








The random objects Madeleine noticed on the drive east to Green Lake did little to inspire enthusiasm.  The trees beside the highway were gnarled, desperate-looking things, greedy for whatever water they received.

THE FRIDAY 56












  "Hey, I don't care, I'm just telling you, help the guy out instead of stepping on his ball.  Act like a real woman instead of this highbrow intellectual bullshit that nobody ever bought from you anyway."

BOOK BLOGGER HOP




The question this week:
As a book blogger yourself, what was the last book you read as a result of a fellow blogger's post?

I don't really remember when that happened, but I got a great suggestion on a book from a fellow book club friend......Where the Crawdads Sing - Delia Owens(Amazon.com)....Awesome Book, I loved it!  You can see my review at my book blog, Just Books!
