Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda’s Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

Secrets Over Sweet Tea

Secrets Over Sweet Tea

Book Beginnings:

“Scarlett Jo Newberry’s lime-green flip-flops smacked the sidewalk loudly as she walked through her neighborhood.  Her prayers were sometimes just as loud — or sometimes she prayed them in her head.  Sometimes she’d hum gently, and other times she’d belt out a song at the top of her lungs.”

The Friday 56:

From page 56:  “And how you won’t be driving or dating until you’re thirty.”

I won this book from another blogger, but I haven’t had a chance to read it yet. It’s fairly high up on my TBR pile, but don’t you think the cover is just beautiful.  Makes me think of Texas summer days on the porch with my Granny and her famous sweet tea made with love and wonderful well water.

    Scarlet sounds like a fun person! And not being allowed to drive and date until your thirty is a pretty harsh punishment!! I’d love for you to join my giveaway of ‘Arabella’s Shadows’, all you have to do is leave your name and email address in a comment!

    Love the cover, and based on the great beginning and laughable 56, I’m betting it’s a good read!
