Friday Meme’s ~ Snow Creek

November 15, 2019 Misc. 7

Since there are a few Friday Meme’s that I want to participate in I have decided to post them all in one post.

book beginnings memeBook Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. Take the first sentence of your current read and post it.

From the Number One New York Times and Amazon Charts bestselling author, comes an absolutely heart-stopping and completely unputdownable crime series, introducing Detective Megan Carpenter.

Footprints were scattered about like fallen leaves. She looked down into the ravine, and once more her lungs filled with fear. A body, blackened and motionless lay splayed out in the bushes.

Detective Megan Carpenter is no stranger to evil. Escaping the horrors of her old life, she’s vowed never to let anyone hurt her or those she loves ever again. Joining the small police force in Jefferson County’s Port Townsend, Megan is determined to get every victim of a crime the justice they deserve.

So when Ruth Turner walks into the Sheriff’s office claiming her sister Ida Watson has been missing for over a month, Megan’s instincts tell her that she needs to do more than just file a report.

Arriving at a secluded farmhouse in the hills above Snow Creek, she finds Ida’s teenage children alone and frightened.

Then a few days later, close to the Watsons’ home, the blackened body of a woman is discovered in an abandoned pickup truck.

Megan must unravel the disturbing secrets of the isolated Snow Creek community if she is to catch the killer.

But Megan has dark secrets of her own too…

Hidden in the back of her closet is a box of tapes containing every single recording of her therapy sessions with Doctor Albright over thirteen years ago. As Megan begins to play the tapes, she’s taken straight back to her terrifying childhood, back to the time she was a kid called Rylee, fighting to survive.

Can Megan finally confront the past she’s spent years trying to block out and will listening to her own painful story help her solve the complex case she is now entangled in? 

Currently reading this one and I am half way through it and it’s okay but not wowing, but curious to see how it ends.

I know it is only tomato soup left at the bottom of the cup from yesterday’s rushed attempt at lunch. I know that. I know blood. And yet it’s like a little trick to me, maybe a tic is a better word. Something, among many, that I can’t shake. I have seen so much blood.

Knowing what I know now, this beginning makes more sense. 🙂

Friday 56

The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda @ Freda’s Voice. It’s like Tuesday  Teaser but  you have a specific place in your read that you have to turn in your read (page 56 or 56%) to get your teaser.

He gives me a knowing look. He hates making family notifications. No one likes to. It’s the worst part of the job. But one of the most important parts.

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer.  Each week we are asked a question to answer so it reminds me a bit of FF and so I thought it made a good fit to my other Friday Memes.

Do you think that overall work morale would be improved by having a “book lunch”, sponsored by the company, at least once a month, or perhaps once a week?

I don’t know, I think it would depend on how many readers where at your workplace and what types of books you read. I mean if it was all about literary fiction I would not be attending…lol. If it was Oprah’s picks I would probably not be attending…lol. 🙂 Though I do think it would be cool if they did do something like that.

    I don’t think something like this would prove beneficial at all where I work. We’re spread all over the state and it would be stressful trying to converge. Plus I don’t know if a book club would really focus on the kind of books I’m in to.

    And I think I’m skipping Snow Creek.

    I hope you enjoy Snow Creek. Not every book can be a wow book, can it? We certainly can hope though. 🙂

    I read during my lunch break at work as it is, but I don’t think a work sponsored book break would go over so well. Staggered lunches and most everyone wanting to physically get out of the office for a little while while they can . . . It’s an interesting idea though.

    I hope you have a great week!

      I wasn’t a huge fan of Snow Creek, probably a 3 stars. It would be nice if they were all wowing! 🙂
