Book Beginnings & Friday 56 - #67

Book Beginnings on Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Every Friday we share the first sentence (or so) of the book we’re currently reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.

My Book Beginning:  

Looking to the Woods (Paris Homicide, Book 4) by Frederique Molay 

However well you feed the wolf, he still looks to the woods. - Russian Proverb. 

He tied up the body with great care, closed the suitcase, and pulled out the handle.  His breathing was calm now. 
My Thoughts:  I have read and really enjoyed the previous three books in this series and can't wait to get a chance to dive into this installment. My review for this will post early next week.   

What do you think?  Don't forget to leave your book beginning below and to link-up at Rose City Reader.  


Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda at Freda’s Voice on every Friday.

To Play along here are the Rules:

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it)
*Post it.
*Add your post below. 
*Don’t forget to add your post URL (not your blog url) at Freda’s Voice.  
*It's that simple.

My 56 (Also from Looking to the Woods by Frederique Molay – about 56% on Kindle):  

"I can tell a slacker when I see one, young man. Who do you think you're talking to? Stop playing games right now!."
"Wait a sec! I don't understand! Just because I don't know what Eva did with the video--"

My Thoughts:  I haven't started the book yet so I have no idea who is speaking to who at this point but I'm definitely looking forward to starting this. 

What do you think?  Do these teasers tempt you to read this book? Don't forget to leave your link below and to link up at Freda's Voice. 

About Looking to the Woods (Paris Homicide, Book 4) by Frederique Molay

When a ten-year-old girl’s mutilated body is found in a public park in Paris, chief of police Nico Sirsky takes action. But his elite team of homicide detectives isn’t on the case for even twenty-four hours before a second child is found murdered and left to rot inside a middle-school classroom. With the City of Light on edge awaiting another gruesome discovery, the clock starts ticking for Sirsky to catch the elusive killer who calls himself the gamemaster.

As the pressure mounts, Sirsky is also confronted with a conundrum in his personal life: his girlfriend is inexplicably pulling away from him. But he must once again put his own problems aside when the investigation turns up nothing but taunts from the killer. It will take an entire team of police psychologists, forensic specialists, and criminal investigators to uncover the truth hidden in a web of murder more tangled than any of them could have imagined.

Have a great Friday! 


  1. I've got quite a few people I think I could recommend this series to! Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Definitely tempting. I love the opening line - so true, and the dialogue is also very good. Thanks for sharing.

  4. After going back and re-reading the 56 I had to delete my comment... lol.. Had it all wrong. Sounds like an interesting read though. :-) Happy weekend!

  5. Sounds chilling. That's a great opening in the killer's point of view. My only reservation about reading this book is that it involves the murder of children. I'm not sure I'd enjoy reading that!
    My Friday post features The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

  6. These snippets are tempting! Thanks for sharing. :)

  7. I read an earlier book by Molay and really enjoyed it. This sounds intense but I'm a total wimp when it comes to books about murdered children. I hope you enjoy it!

  8. Tying up a body in a suitcase always makes me calm too. ;-) Hope you enjoy! I'd love for you and your readers to check out mine ...

  9. A body in a suitcase....sounds intriguing.

    Thanks for sharing.
