Book Beginnings/ The Friday 56 6/16/2017

Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice and Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. The idea is to share a sentence or so from the first page and the 56th page of the book you are currently reading!  Also, I will now also include a brief synopsis.

A Stardance Summer (Eternity Springs, #13)

A Brief Synopsis:  Lili Howe took a leap of faith when she decided to join the Tornado Alleycats, her elderly landlady’s all-female glamour-camping club. Lili’s always given everything to her career, putting herself on track to become her CPA firm’s youngest partner. But now that Lili’s carefully planned future is shattered, she’s willing to let summer work its magic on her―at all costs.

There’s never a dull moment at Stardance Ranch, the Colorado resort Brick Callahan built from the ground up. Still, a late night skinny-dipping session involving a bunch of “glamping” grannies. . .with his best friend’s kid sister Lili among them? He couldn’t have made up such story if he tried. The undeniable mutual attraction between Brick and gorgeous, spirited Lili is a reminder that life is full of surprises. But when Brick’s ex-girlfriend suddenly shows up, he’s faced with a desperate choice: Do right by a woman he once loved or take a chance on Lili. . .and do everything he can to win her heart?

Patsy reached for Fresh Bakery's front door.  "Hmm . . .  maybe before we head back to  camp, I'll stop by the drugstore and buy some hair dye to touch up my roots."


  1. Sounds like a great weekend read. The cover is pretty and inviting. Hope you enjoy.

    My book today is The Lost Life of Eva Braun by Angela Lambert.

  2. This one sounds like a lot of fun. Anything with "glamping grannies" has to be fun. I have a historical mystery with ghosts from my TBR mountain this week - Delia's Shadow by Jaime Lynn Moyer. Happy reading!

  3. I've been curious about this author, and this one sounds like a good place to start.

    Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  4. You have piqued my interest! Happy weekend!

  5. I'm not sure this is something that I would enjoy, but I hope you're loving it. Happy reading!

  10. Just read an author should reveal who, what, when etc. close to the beginning. This author definitely did that.
