Friday Memes: Murder at Greysbridge by Andrea Carter

 Happy Friday everybody!

Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City ReaderThe Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

My eyes shifted away from the skeleton. They moved to the central nervous system, up along the spinal cord to the brain, the cerebellum and pituitary gland. They pinged across to the height charts, the nutrition pyramid and the posters saying Antibiotics won't cure your cold! and Baby clinic every Wednesday 1 p.m. to 3 p. m.

I tried to relax.

God, how I hated going to the doctor. This one was particularly embarrassing. 
Friday 56:
He kissed me on the cheek, but it was awkward. We still weren't meeting each other's eyes. Not properly. I turned the key in the door of the office. I hadn't realized going in, but I suddenly needed a refuge, to close a door both physically and metaphorically on the outside world.
This week I am spotlighting Murder at Greysbridge by Andrea Carter. It is from my Review stack. Here's the description from Amazon:
Summer has arrived in Inishowen and solicitor Benedicta (Ben) O'Keeffe is greatly tempted by a job offer from a law firm in America. Yet before making any life-changing decisions, there is her assistant Leah's wedding to attend at the newly restored Greysbridge Hotel—with its private beach and beautiful pier.

The perfect location—but the festivities are brutally cut short when a young American, a visitor also staying at the hotel, drowns in full view of the wedding guests. And when a second death is discovered the same evening, Ben finds herself embroiled in a real country-house-murder-mystery, where all the guests are suspects.

Sergeant Tom Molloy’s appearance to investigate throws Ben into turmoil, especially when the pursuit of two runaways leads the pair to an island off the Donegal coast, where a violent storm traps them together, completely cut off from the mainland.

A deadly conspiracy is unfolding on this tiny North Atlantic island—fueled by the ruthless pursuit of money—careening toward disaster for the inhabitants—and for Ben.


  1. I can relate with a distaste for doctor visits. They're just not my thing. Happy weekend!

  2. This one sounds like it has a pretty unique storyline! Enjoy. Have a great weekend!

  3. I find myself doing that in the doctor's office too--scanning all the posters and signs on the walls. Not to mention how much I hate having to be there. Greysbridge Hotel sounds like the perfect spot for a murder mystery. I like the sound of this one! I hope you have a great weekend!

  4. A reshare is always appreciated! I still have not read it but think it still sounds decent! Happy weekend!

  5. Totally agree with the distaste for going to the doctor. Telehealth visits are one of the very few things that I've liked about the last two years. Sounds like a neat book. Hope you have a great weekend!
