Book Beginnings: Devil Sent the Rain

Devil Sent the Rain, by Lisa Turner (William Morrow, September 2016). This is the first line of the book's Prologue:
The radio was playing "Blue Skies" when the gun went off.

My Thoughts:

I definitely like that beginning — the action and the mystery start with the very first sentence. Don't really know much about this book — just that it's a mystery in the Southern Gothic mode. But it's an Early Reviewer win from Library Thing and I've had it for a while now, so I need to get into it pretty quick. I've heard good things about Lisa Turner's earlier books in this series, and I'm hoping this one will be a good, fast read.

Rose City Reader hosts Book Beginnings on Friday.  As she says, the idea is to post the first sentence (or so) of the book you're currently reading, along with any first impressions or thoughts you have about the book, the author, etc.  It's a wonderful way of adding new books to your must-read list, and a chance to connect with other readers and bloggers.


  1. I love that opener, too. And that cover is beautiful.

    Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “LUCKIEST GIRL ALIVE”

  2. This sounds really, really good - I love the beginning and the premise of the book - this is the first time i've seen this book and I'll start the series at the beginning - here's my Friday meme


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
