YOUR BOOK BEGINNING
MY BOOK BEGINNING
Angelo's Bar and Grill is quiet for a Sunday afternoon. . . . Two fat guys in blue satin bowling shirts and a skinny bleached blond hooker with bad teeth play acey-duecy at the bar.
-- The Grow by Lindsay R. Mohlere.
So what if Oregon just legalized pot? There's still money in illegal dope and still fiction gold in the idea of ripping of an illegal grow operation hidden deep in an Oregon National Forest. The Grow is a great summer read!
I'm intrigued. I have to wonder why some legalize and some don't. I say, all or nothing.ReplyDelete
Men in satin shirts, hookers, and marijuana will make for a fun read, I'm sure!ReplyDelete
Not sure why some legalize and some don't. You would think the law for something like this would be the same country wide.ReplyDelete
I like that beginning! Yes, all the new marijuana laws are very confusing. I agree -- should be the same everywhere.ReplyDelete
Interesting opening! Doesn't paint a very pretty picture lol. It makes me think of all things shady!ReplyDelete
I hope you enjoy the book :D
I agree - this does sound like everything shady. Sounds like a timely summer read at least.ReplyDelete
I agree - this does sound like everything shady. Looks like a timely summer read regardless.ReplyDelete

Sounds very shady indeed.ReplyDelete
Hi - Loved the beginning of The Grow by Lindsay R. Mohlere. It makes me very curious. Also, can't leave without thanking you for starting this excellent meme. I've always been most curious about how a book starts out. :)ReplyDelete

The beginning is definitely descriptive. The whole place does not sound like somewhere I'd rather avoid! The book itself looks interesting. Enjoy the read!ReplyDelete
"Acey Duecy?" When I take my first trip to Vegas, I'll play it.:)ReplyDelete
Your books are always so different and interesting.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing.

It was the bad teeth that got me! Great opening that allows us to visualize the people right away.ReplyDelete
