The Friday Fifty-Six (56) is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice.   Here are the rules:

  • Grab the book nearest you. Right Now.
  • Turn to Page 56.
  • Find the fifth (5th) sentence.
  • Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you don't have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog. 
  • Post a link with your post back to Freda's Voice.
  • Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual.  Use the CLOSEST.

Yolanda's mouth thinned, and it looked as if she were about to explode when Suzie Chang saved the day.  

So, what's your Friday 56?

This week my "Waiting" on item is extra special....isn't the cover gorgeous?

Coming in February 2012

Rainshadow Road by Lisa Kleypas 

Lucy Marinn is a glass artist living in mystical, beautiful, Friday Harbor Washington.  She is stunned and blindsided by the most bitter kind of betrayal: her fiance Kevin has left her.  His new lover is Lucy's own sister.  Lucy's bitterness over being dumped is multiplied by the fact that she has constantly made the wrong choices in her romantic life.  Facing the sever disapproval of Lucy's parents, Kevin asks his friend Sam Nolan, a local vineyard owner on San Juan Island, to "romance" Lucy and hopefully loosen her up and get her over her anger.  Complications ensue when Sam and Lucy begin to fall in love, Kevin has second thoughts, and Lucy discovers that the new relationship in her life began under false pretenses.  Questions about love, loyalty, old patterns, mistakes, and new beginnings are explored as Lucy learns that some things in life - even after being broken - can be made into something new and beautiful.
