Friday Firsts: Chasing Embers by James Bennett


Friday Firsts is a new meme that runs every Friday over on Tenacious Reader. The idea is to feature the first few sentences/paragraph of your current book and try and outline your first impressions as a result. This is a quick and easy way to share a snippet of information about your current read and to perhaps tempt others.  Stop on by and link up with Tenacious Reader.  My book this week is Chasing Embers by James Bennett.


Once upon a time there was a happy-ever-after.  Or at least a shot at one.

Red Ben Garston sat at the bar, cradling his JD and Coke and trying to ignore the whispers of the past.  The whiskey, however, was fanning the flames.  Rain wept against the window, pouring down the large square of dirty glass that looked out on the blurred and hurrying pedestrians, the tall grey buildings and sleek yellow taxicabs.

    This sounds really good. I like personification as a stylistic device so the bit about the rain stood out for me. I hope the book ends up being a good read for you. I am reading Fear Stalks the Bayou by Juanita Carlson right now, almost half-way through and enjoying it so far. Happy Friday and enjoy your weekend.
