The Friday 56 #5

The Friday 56 is a weekly blog meme hosted by Freda's Voice. The rules are simple:

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56, or 56% in your eReader.
*Find any sentence (or a few, just don't spoil it) that grab you.
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post here in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.

It's that simple!

All her single sister Gemma, an assistant director, wants is a getaway to the sizzling Caribbean sun, far from diva actors and Hollywood tantrums. Until a sisterly squabble prompts new plans: a holiday swap. Gemma will spend a cosy, snowy week with her nieces and nephews - not to mention Juliet's gorgeous neighbour Will - whilst Juliet takes Gemma's tropical holiday and unplanned adventures. Juliet and Gemma may not get the holiday they expected, but it could be about to make all their wishes come true..."

  3. I'm reading this right now! So far I'm really enjoying it! I haven't quite gotten to that part but it sounds good.

    1. I'll admit I have skipped a little bit ahead in order to get to the 56, so I'm not entirely sure how she got there :) Glad you're enjoying it so far!

  4. Such a sense of thrill to the 56! I'd take it slow if I was hanging from a harness too ha ha!
