Book Beginnings + Friday 56: Secrets of Shame: The Colsons (Fog Lake Suspense #6) 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 Secrets of Shame: The Colsons (Fog Lake Suspense #6) by Christy Barritt

About the Book
A killer has a promise to keep . . .

Attorney Isaac Colson only wants to put his tumultuous past in Fog Lake behind him and return to his life in Memphis. But when an ominous text threatens that he must come back or there will be deadly consequences, he knows he can’t take any chances.

Rebecca Moreno has only ever loved one man—her high school sweetheart, Isaac Colson. But when his dad went to prison for murder, Rebecca’s father forbade them from seeing each other again.

Years later, Isaac is back in town and old feelings are stirring. But Rebecca is harboring a secret that could change everything. When The Good Samaritan Killer strikes again, guilt pummels her. She has to tell Isaac the truth. But as events unfold, she has more to lose than ever.

Isaac and Rebecca must find answers—their lives depend on it. But everyone seems to have secrets, each that forms an obstacle to finding the truth . . . and to staying alive.

I promised I'd be back.

Friday 56
Rebecca hadn't thought about Anita Murphy in a long time - though she had nothing but fond memories of the woman. She had no idea the Colsons were connected to her, although Rebecca vaguely remembered the woman teaching at the private school Isaac and Madison had transferred to.

  3. This sounds intriguing! I Love the simplicity of the opening line and yet it really makes me wonder what comes next. I hope you have a great weekend, Ashley!

    1. It's so hard to keep up with her releases. I think she releases at least one new one a month, so I'm always scrambling to stay up to date with her books. I guess that's a good problem to have with a favorite author though, lol! Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a great weekend too! :)

  6. I'm curious for more!!! Happy weekend!
