Happy Veteran’s Day…and don’t you love writing the date 11-11-11? Welcome to another Friday Potpourri event, celebrating Book Beginnings, hosted by A Few More Pages; and The Friday 56, led by Freda’s Voice.
Today I’m excited to feature a book on next week’s list that has been calling to me ever since I discovered it. The Strangers on Montagu Street, by Karen White, is the third book in the Tradd Street series.
Blurb: Psychic realtor Melanie Middleton returns-only to be greeted by a house full of lost souls.
Psychic realtor Melanie Middleton is still restoring her Charleston house and doesn’t expect to have a new houseguest, a teen girl named Nola. But the girl didn’t come alone, and the spirits that accompanied Nola don’t seem willing to leave…
Beginning: The phone rang out in the night-shrouded house, shrill and insistent, bringing me abruptly out of an odd dream that somehow involved me, Jack, a shovel, and something dark and undulating buried beneath the black earth.
Wow! Don’t you love it? Now I’m there, in that moment, breathless and wondering what will happen next.
P. 56: My words were cut off by a muffled scream from inside the house. Before I could tell my mother I’d call her back, Jack was already inside and sprinting up the stairs. I reached Nola’s room right behind him and had to stop for a moment to register what I was seeing.
So now I really, really want to keep reading. What are you discovering today? Please share….
