Book Beginnings & Friday 56 (love this concept so I thought I'd do it just for fun.)

Both excerpts are taken from The Sister Wife by Diane Noble.
The Sister Wife: Brides of Gabriel Book One

How is this for a cool one-liner that will whet your appetite for the story?

When Mary Rose married Gabe, she never expected to share him.

Now the first thing I have to post for this is the beginning of the book. Here are the first few sentences.

Mary Rose refused to let the sting at the back of her throat turn to tears. Instead, she drew in a deep breath and reached over her swollen stomach to pluck weeds from between the rows of cabbage seedlings.

This is the Friday 56 portion of the post...

This fun meme was originally hosted at Storytime with Tonya.

Want to play? Here are the rules...


* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.

* Turn to page 56.

* Find the fifth sentence.

* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.

* Post a link along with your post back to this blog.

* Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

Her is my excerpt from page 56 of The Sister Wife by Diane Noble.
"Please tell me I haven't committed some unpardonable sin by having a critical spirit towards God's great apostle."

Got this great post idea from Proud Book Nerd .

All of those teasers, from the first line to the 56, sounds like a wonderful read! Thank you for laying it out the way you did in the post, it was fun to read!
Love the new look by the way, it is very nice and the colors are easy to read!
Have a wonderful Sunday and God bless!

SO, since this seemed like an incredibly fun idea, I decided to join the fun. The book I grabbed is Brandilyn Collins Web of Lies.Here's page 56.

For some masochistic reason I'd stuck her phone number in my purse, and now it practically burned a hole through the leather. "

It will post this friday on my blog.
