Book Beginnings & Friday 56 - #76

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:  

Endgame: CSI Reilly Steel, Book 7, by Casey Hill

There was nothing quite like the stench of fresh vomit.  
My Thoughts:  This beginning tells me a couple of things because I have read all of the previous books and know that Reilly is a Forensic officer for the Garda (Irish police), she's clearly at a crime scene and either the victim vomited or one of the first officers to arrive at the crime scene vomited.   

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 Endgame: CSI Reilly Steel by Casey Hill – about 56% on Kindle):  

You beauty....Chris thought, marveling at how modern technology could make their jobs so much easier sometimes.  He sat forward eagerly. 

My Thoughts:  I haven’t gotten this far into the book but I know that Chris is one of the Detectives who works closely with Reilly on cases - they have an unusual working relationship due to a mutual attraction that neither knows what to do about.  

So what do you think…do the teasers tempt you?  Don’t forget to leave your link below and link up at Freda’s Voice. 

About Endgame: CSI Reilly Steel, Book 7, by Casey Hill

The brand new adventure in the USA Today bestselling CSI Reilly Steel series.
Forensic mystery series for fans of Patricia Cornwell, Lisa Gardner, Kathy Reichs, Karin Slaughter, or TV shows CSI and Criminal Minds.

When the body of a teenage boy is found beaten to death in his own bedroom, and a girl attending a party held at his house reports an attempted sexual attack the night before, the Dublin police immediately suspect both incidents are related.

But when a sweep of the crime scene throws up some truly puzzling forensic evidence, CSI Reilly Steel wonders if those initial suspicions are correct. 

And as the investigation deepens, and her GFU team begins to delve into the online lives of both teenage victims, even more questions are raised.
Can Reilly help the investigators discover the truth about what actually happened on the night of the party? 

Or is she too distracted by personal issues, namely the visit of an old friend from the US...

Don't forget to post your meme's and link up at both host locations.  

Have a great Friday! 


  1. I've heard of this series but haven't read any of the books. That's quite an opening, and the 56 excerpt makes me curious about the technology he's referring to.
    My Friday post features Still Alice.

  2. I think this may be a series I'll want to check out when I'm one of my moods for a bit more grit :)

  3. Interesting beginning. I would definitely want to find out more. Here is my post

  4. I could almost smell that vomit...yuk! lol.

    Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “THE WIDOWER’S WIFE”

  5. CSI in Ireland? How can I resist this one?

  6. Ew to that beginning. :-) Happy weekend!

  7. I've never read heard of this one. It is a pretty fun line though. Sometimes I'm really impressed with technology, too. :)

  8. That beginning! LOL I love plots like this. I think I'll check out the series.
