*I am currently away on holiday so I will catch up on comments on my return*
Welcome to Friday 56! Hosted by Freda’s Voice, you turn to page 56 or 56% in any book or reading device and pick a sentence that grabs you.
My Book of the Week is The Christmas Murder Game by Alexandra Benedict (click for link to Goodreads)
“She wonders if Isabelle is right in saying that Lily always got to the heart of things. That feels as far away from who she is now as her little flat in London. ‘Do you mind if we don’t talk about it? About my mum, I mean. I know I brought it up, but…’ She doesn’t look at Isabelle but she can feel her pity, sticky as treacle.”
There wasn’t a lot on this page when compared to what I have read so far (I am currently 71% of the way through), but I thought that this showed the vulnerability of the main character. The main reason for her coming to the house was because her now deceased Aunt wanted to tell her something about her mother. She goes through phases of just wanting to forget it all and leave.

That cover looks really cool. Thanks for sharing!
You’re right, that quote does show the vulnerability of the character.
