Friday 56 and Book Beginnings: Head Above Water (Gemini #2) by Hailey Edwards

This is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice
These are the rules:
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56, or 56% on your eReader.
3. Find any sentence (or a few, just don't spoil it) that grabs you.
4. Post it.
5. Add the URL to your post in the link on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post.

Please join us over at RoseCityReader every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

Camille Ellis has tracked many killers during her career,but this time it's personal. Cut off from conclave resources, she won't let a small thing like a suspension keep her from accepting Cord Graeson's offer of help.

Pretending to be mated to him is one way to secure allies, but the best that can be said of the Chandler Pack is they haven't killed or eaten her. Yet. Between the alpha's displeasure and the pack's distrust of fae, she's working overtime to keep her head above water.

Just when the fur starts to fly, a tip cracks her case--and her life--wide open.

Book Beginning:
I disembarked my flight from Mobile, Alabama with a laptop tucked under  my arm and the breathless expectation of a reunion with a certain hazel-eyed warg only to be met with a sea if eager faces, none of which brightened in recognition of me.
I read the first book a little while ago, so I kind of remember what happened.

My 56:
Cold rage ignited in my gut. There was only one reasonable explanation for it, and it made me sick.
I just grabbed a random sentence at the 56% mark. I have no idea what is happening, but it sounds like it could be exciting.


  1. Yikes, Marie! I wonder what preceded (or came after) your Friday 56. Certainly doesn't sound good!

    Here's my Friday 56 et al.

  2. This sounds like a really good one.

  3. Both snippets leave me wanting more but that's a good thing. Happy weekend!

  4. Hey! Mobile, Alabama. Just across the bay from my town. I have got to check out this series now. LOL
