    This sounds like a great series – and my kids are all getting to that age-bracket now. I’ll definitely have to check it out!

    My first line comes from my favourite art fraud investigator, Serena Jones in ‘Another Day, Another Dali’ by Sandra Orchard:

    “I tore my gaze from the porch that wrapped around the drug dealer’s house and cringed at the number on my phone’s display.
    Mom said there’d be days like this.”

    From the Indie novel by Jon and Thomas Hopkins, The Princes of Albion —

    Caradoc escaped into the shadows.

    My first line for the week is:

    A Spy’s Devotion by Melanie Dickerson

    April 1811. London, England.

    “Mr. Nicholas Langdon wasn’t supposed to be here. Miss Julia Grey blinked, but he was still standing across the room from where she sat at the pianoforte.”

    Happy reading and happy Friday!

    I’m rereading Cold Shot in preparation for Book #2 in the Chesapeake Valor series by Dani Pettrey.
    “Fog wafted over the silent hilltop, dancing in eerie waves amidst the centuries-old trees, the weathered trunks the sole markers of the lost graves littering the grounds surrounding them.”

  6. Andrea Stephens

    For a moment she couldn’t breathe, and then the barest whisper passed her lips–half spontaneous praise and half simple awe.

    “Only a limited patch of Earth could claim the privilege of belonging to Texas. Not that he despised the rest of the world for its misfortune, but there was a difference.”
    — For the Record by Regina Jennings.

    “Carrington felt as though she’d collided with a moving train.” – The Choosing by Rachelle Dekker LOVING it! Happy Friday!

    This morning I found a black-and-white photograph of my father at the back of the bureau drawer. He didn’t look like a liar.
