Book Beginnings + Friday 56: Never Let Go (Uncommon Justice #1) by Elizabeth Goddard

Book Beginnings is a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader that asks you to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you're reading. Friday 56 is hosted by Freda's Voice and asks you to grab a book (any book), turn to page 56 or 56% in your ereader and share a non-spoilery sentence or two.

This week I'm featuring Never Let Go (Uncommon Justice #1) by Elizabeth Goddard. I'm almost finished with this romantic suspense. It's been great so far.

About the Book
As a forensic genealogist, Willow Anderson is following in her late grandfather's footsteps in her quest for answers about a baby abducted from the hospital more than twenty years ago. The case may be cold, but things are about to heat up when someone makes an attempt on her life to keep her from discovering the truth.

Ex-FBI agent--and Willow's ex-flame--Austin McKade readily offers his help to protect the woman he never should have let get away. Together they'll follow where the clues lead them, even if it means Austin must face the past he's spent much of his life trying to forget. And even if it puts Willow's tender heart at risk.

In this fast-paced and emotional page-turner, bestselling author Elizabeth Goddard keeps the stakes high, the romantic tension sparking, and the outcome uncertain until the very end.


Book Beginning (From the Prologue - 21 years before)
Nursing scrubs? Check. White sneakers? Check. Keycard? Check.
Calm, even breathing? Nope.
She had everything she needed to get in and out quickly. The plan seemed so easy. Too easy. Then why did her heart pound against her rib cage until it ached? Why did her pulse roar in her ears as she walked the sterile hallway, heading for the maternity ward?

Friday 56
Growing up, Austin had spent as much time as he could in these woods, pretending he was someone else. Pretending he was safe.
