Edith Lewis got out her easel and watercolors and set them up near the edge of the bluff in front of their cottage on Whale Cove.

-- On the Rocks: A Willa Cather and Edith Lewis Mystery by Sue Hallgarth.  Set in 1929 on Grand Maras, a Canadian island, this historic, literary mystery is the first of what looks like a terrific new series.


  1. Hi Gilion,

    I like everything about this one ... Those first lines sound as though they set the scene for some great descriptive writing, the premise for the book is right up my street and I love that original cover art design.

    A definite addition to my reading list, thanks for highlighting it this week and as always, for hosting.

    Have a good weekend, Yvonne

  2. The descriptive beginning really draws me in and I want to read more. This sounds like the kind of book I love. Thank you for hosting Book Beginnings every week.

  3. That beginning definitely doesn't give much away! Hope it's a good read!

  4. This is a cute meme. I keep forgetting to participate.

  5. That sounds interesting. I am going to check this series out.

  6. Tempting indeed... I collect books set on cold-weather islands!

  7. That setting sounds ripe for mystery - enjoy!

  8. Not much to go on from that beginning! Hope you enjoy it.

  9. the cover and the first line - both make this book interesting..
