#BookBeginnings & #Friday56 -- Anna Loan-Wilsey's A Lack of Temperance

It's another Friday with The Friday 56 and Book Beginnings (also found at Freda's Voice & hosted by Rose City Reader)!

Today we're visiting A Lack of Temperance by Anna Loan-Wilsey. It's the FIRST in the Hattie Davish series but I'm still considering it to be an abandoned series since I had requested (and was accepted for) the FOURTH in the series on NetGalley and then totally forgot about it ... so sort of abandoned the series before starting it. I'm making up for it with a marathon read ... which, you know, I don't normally do.

So, the Book Beginnings rules are to share the first few sentences & initial thoughts:

It was chaos. Several whiskey barrels had been left smashed and blazing in the middle of the road.
 What the what?!? It certainly sounds chaotic! What's up with the whiskey barrels on fire?

Fast forward to the The Friday 56:


  1. Sounds interesting. I haven't heard of this series before. I have a romance this week. Happy reading!

  2. That's a very interesting opening! I might have to check it out.
