    • No, Elena, even though I totally agree with the statement, it is the first sentence (or rather the first two sentences) of the book mentioned.


  1. I don’t read any book of that series, but I really like the first ones of Didio Falco Series. Do you know it?

    This week my BBF is in Spanish, but the author writes in English, so maybe you know her: Sabrina Jeffries.

    • Yes, I know Falco and read quite a few of the books. But Corvinus is my absolute favourite when it comes to Ancient Roman sleuths.


  2. Oh, just from the opening and your description, I want to know more about the series. I’m going to go look it up.

    Thanks for participating in Book Beginnings!


  3. Hi Rikki,

    I can’t say that ancient mysteries are a genre that I have ever dipped into, but as I like mysteries so much, I might well be tempted.

    I do however, love those first couple of lines and can agree with the sentiment wholeheartedly. I have a niece who married last year and I just couldn’t believe the choices available to her … for a price of course! They say that the average cost of a UK wedding is almost £25,000 now, so boy am I glad that we were married over thirty years ago, when there were not the choices available and budgets were tight!

    Enjoy your book and I hope that you are having a good Easter.

    • That wedding business is insane!

      If you like mysteries in general, you really should check out the historical ones. There are Ancient Romans, Ancient Greek etc. There is something for everybody.
