Book Beginnings + Friday 56: Cape Corral Keeper (Saltwater Cowboys #3) by Christy Barritt

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 Cape Corral Keeper (Saltwater Cowboys #3) by Christy Barritt. This has been a great romantic suspense series so far, though, I've somehow managed to get behind in it. Christy Barritt tends to release at least one or two new books a month. I always try to keep up with them so I don't get too far behind, but I don't know what happened the past couple months. I'm three books behind in this series and one in another. Eek! I feel like I'm never gonna catch up now! I guess it's a good problem to have too much to read from a favorite author instead of always waiting for something new from them. 

About the Book
They agreed to marry. But they never agreed to fall in love.

When Cape Corral Fire Chief Dillon McGrath saves a woman wearing a wedding dress from drowning, he knows he’ll have a great story to tell the guys at the station later. He never expected to get personally involved in the woman’s plight to stay alive.

Gracie Loveland had no choice but to run only moments before saying “I do” to her manipulative fianc√©. Staying would have ultimately meant her death at the hands of the cruel man. Desperation, along with a dormant feistiness, surfaces as she fights to survive.

Only one plan might keep Gracie safe and help Dillon preserve the island’s wild horses. The idea seems crazy, but Dillon and Gracie can think of no other options. However, a foe from Gracie’s past is closing in, determined to get what he wants regardless of whose life he destroys in the process.

Book Beginnings
Tears pressed at Gracie Loveland's eyes.
She gripped the side of the boat as white caps crashed around her.

Friday 56
As Dillon left her alone, Gracie's heart pounded in her ears. She had no idea what the outcome of all this would be, nor did she like the possibilities that floated through her mind.
Constantine wasn't done with her. Not by any means. She hated sitting back and not doing anything.

  3. Two to three new books a month? How is that even possible? It's nice to know that a favorite author has books available to read though, isn't it? I'm spotlighting The Shadowy Horses by Susanna Kearsley which was a read/listen combo for me. Happy reading!
