Maggie's Turn - Book Beginnings on Friday and Friday 56

Maggie's Turn
“Wouldn’t it be fun, just for a little while, to drive a different direction and take a few snapshots?” Those words from Chapter 1 made me ask: who hasn’t wanted to run away for a little while? If you can relate, then you'll definitely enjoy MAGGIE'S TURN

FRIDAY 56 (56% on my Kindle):
     Cassie stopped short when she saw the red Mustang sitting in the driveway instead of the minivan, and no one else in sight. She turned and stared at Maggie, her expression reflecting confusion.
     "You have a Mustang? A red Mustang? Where's the van? Where are the kids?"

It had not been a good morning at the Harrison household. At least not for Maggie. Her nineteen-year-old son, Kyle, had slept in late, which meant he was late showering and would be late to one of the four college courses he was intent upon failing. Because he was running behind, her fourteen-year-old daughter, Kaia, was late getting ready for school, which meant Maggie's husband, Andrew, had to rush to shower for work. And, of course, Maggie had to rush too since she was always the last person to use the bathroom.

Genre: Women's Fiction
Number of Pages: 247

Not very responsible of him to be late to school.

Beautiful cover art! Sounds like a whirl-wind morning before school and I like the sound of a red mustang. I learned to drive with a white one. Merry Christmas!

I wish I'd had a Mustang!

One bathroom? It's amazing they all made it out alive in the morning.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Exactly, and that's why her escape makes such a good story.
