 "Please, promise me they won't let it burn," the woman said."  
-- Public Trust by J. M. Mitchell.  This is mystery with a National Park story-line.  Of course, if it starts off with a forest fire, it is immediately captivating. 

Thanks go to book publicist Mary Bisbee-Beek for my copy.

  3. Thanks for hosting!

  4. I've been meaning to join in for a while now, and finally posted a beginning of a book today!

  5. Hmm, trust and promise, two things that are often broken. So is the the woods that are burning?

  6. I love our National Parks, so anything set in one of them is for me. That's why I always love Nevada Barr's mysteries. This is going on my list.

  7. I linked in my book feature, a post I do occasionally, into your Book Friday, since it's Friday! Yaah!

  8. This comment has been removed by the author.

  9. I like this opening. With all the fires we've had this summer, the book is definitely timely.
    My Book Beginning is here.

  10. I haven't heard of this one, but the beginning makes me want to know more.
