  1. From “OVER THE HURDLE” by Barbara Hinske: “Emily Main lifted a handful of her heavy auburn hair with one hand and fanned the damp nape of her neck with the other. “‘What do you think? Does the buffet look pretty? I want everything to be perfect. It needs to be elegant and classy for Gina.’” This is the third book in the series but the first one that I have read. The protagonist is a blind young woman and the story is fascinating.

  2. The Lost Melody was sooooo gooood.
    My first line is from an author that has become a favorite of mine: C.C. Warrens.

    Flush against the wall, I peered around the corner and up the staircase at the hallway.
