Book Beginnings on Fridays is hosted by Rose City Reader and as she says the idea of this meme is for you to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author's name. There's a linky list on the website and you can use #BookBeginnings on Twitter.
My book beginning: Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman
I read Beth Hoffman's second novel Looking for Me earlier this year, absolutely loved it and bought this one straight away, Hoffman is a very good storyteller.
The book blurb:
When Camille Sugarbaker Honeycutt, the pretty but crazy 1951 Vidalia Onion Queen, dies suddenly, her twelve year old daughter CeeCee is whisked off by her Great Aunt Tootie to the fable city of Savannah in the most magnificent car CeeCee has ever seen.
Soon among the sweet scent of magnolias and the loving warmth of her aunt and her colourful friends, it looks as though CeeCee has arrived in paradise. But when a darker side of the Southern dream threatens this delicate, newfound happiness, Aunt Tootie and her friends must rally to CeeCee's aid.
