Book Beginnings December 20, 2013

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

My book beginning today is from a book I checked out from the library yesterday.  I went to get an audio book for when I am driving and promised myself I would not check out anything else.  I came home with one Audio Book and four books.  I have no will power.

Heirs and Graces (Her Royal Spyness Mysteries, #7)Heirs and Graces by Rhys Bowen is book # 7 in the Royal Spyness Mystery series.  This series is set in the 1930's and features Lady Georgiana Rannaock, 35th in line for the throne of England.  As you might guess it is a fun series filled with real and imaginary characters.  Here is the beginning of Heirs and Graces.

"One thing I should have learned about my mother was that I could not count on her.  After all, she bolted form the family home, abandoning my father and me when I was two, and by the time she resurfaced again in my life she had worked her way through global list of men."

  1. Wow, the whole series sounds like so much fun! Especially love the '35th in line for the throne of England' part. Thank you so much for recommending!
    P.S. I might be mistaken, but I think your linky is wrong. When I click on it I get "the page doesn't exist". The last character from the url is missing.
