Friday Memes

This week I am posting from DeKok and Murder on Blood Mountain by A C Baantjer. You can find my review here.
Friday Book Beginnings is a weekly Meme previously hosted at A Few More Pages.. Now hosted by Rose City Reader.

An icy polar wind came down from an outcast sky and raced along the frozen Amstel River. It chased unopposed through the bare branches of the trees and bushes.

Friday 56 hosted @ Freda's Voice is a weekly Meme where we share an interesting snippet from page 56 of any book.

"You're here for spiritual guidance?"
It sounded like a joke.
DeKok shook his head.
"I'm afraid," he said sadly, "your spiritual guidance would be wasted on us. You see, we're children of Satan."

The beginning of my book is a weather forecast too. Your beginning made me feel pretty chilly.

Wow! that woke me up. Is he serious??? Interesting, really interesting.

I like the 56, I'm not sure if he is serious or being sarcastic.

That opening made me shiver -- perfect for the unseasonably cold weather we are having here in Portland.

But the "children of Satan" thing is really creepy!

Thanks for joining me on Book Beginnings! I am very excited to take over hosting duties.
