Book Beginning: Mira's Way by Amy Maroney



Zari found an empty seat in a half-filled row near the front of the conference room. The latte she’d downed at the Amsterdam airport was still buzzing through her veins.

Mira's Way by Amy Maroney. This is the second book in Maroney's historical fiction Miramonde Series about a female Renaissance artist and the modern-day art historian on her trail.

Please join me every Friday 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.

EARLY BIRDS & SLOWPOKES: This weekly post goes up Thursday evening for those who like to get their posts up and linked early on. But feel free to add a link all week.

SOCIAL MEDIA: If you are on Twitter, Instagram, or other social media, please post using the hash tag #BookBeginnings. I try to follow all Book Beginnings participants on whatever interweb sites you are on, so please let me know if I have missed any and I will catch up.


TIE IN: The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice is a natural tie in with this event and there is a lot of cross over, so many people combine the two. The idea is to post a teaser from page 56 of the book you are reading and share a link to your post. Find details and the Linky for your Friday 56 post on Freda’s Voice.


Well, darn it. I don't have the book in front of me to find a teaser from page 56. I thought I tossed the book in my basket this morning, but I forgot. 

Here is a teaser from page 8, which is as far as I can get on the "Look Inside" feature on Amazon. Sorry! I need to beg a little kindness -- it's been a hair-on-fire kind of week.

He gave a short, dismissive laugh. "Our theories have nothing in common."

This;sounds good! I didn't understand how the two women connected but I had a quick look on Amazon and it sounds intriguing. Happy Friday!

I love dual timeline books, and this one sounds good. I hope you have a great weekend!

Hope you're enjoying it. The opening made me wonder where she's come from and why she's there.

Roberta said...

Thank you for hosting even though it didn't go as planned. Actually the second quote reminds me of a colleague I once had...

I enjoy this genre now and then. Intriguing cover art.
