Welcome to The Friday 56 hosted by Freda’s Voice.


This is a really fun meme!

The only rules are to grab a book (any book), turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader and find a sentence or a few (no spoilers) that grabs you and post it.

Then go over to Freda’s Voice and leave your link so we can visit your 56!

My 56 for this week is from:

 Chasing Fireflies

by Taylor Dean



Genre: Contemporary Romance

From page 56 in the paperback.

On the other hand, my mother asked me to stop watching, to find my life. And that’s what I’m doing. So far, so good.


Read on if you want to know more.


My sisters think I’m crazy.

But, I’ve never forgotten the mysterious woman from my childhood who told me Paul is the name of my one true love.
She told me to search far and wide for him.
I haven’t stopped looking ever since.

When I stumble across an article about a successful American entrepreneur named Paul who lives and works in China, I’m intrigued. When the opportunity to teach English in China presents itself on the same day, I know it’s not a coincidence.

It’s destiny.

My sisters say I’m chasing a dream.

Just like the fireflies we tried to catch on the warm summer evenings of our youth, the dream seems beyond my grasp. Will my quest for the elusive Paul always be just short of fulfillment?

My sisters tell me it’s a fool’s errand.

Until I remind them of the day we saw the Red Bird.
The memory silences them.
The Red Bird Incident remains inarguable—and proves my search for Paul is not a silly fantasy.

I will find Paul . . . I will.

      I really enjoyed it, Stormi. If you read the book, you’d get the cover. This is the last book by Taylor. I’ve read all of her books. Waiting on her new series now!

  2. This one sounds like it might have a touch of mystery to it as well. I’m intrigued and excited to hear what you think about it.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I’ll be reviewing it next month. I really enjoy Taylor’s books and always waiting for the next one to come out.

  3. Freda Mans says:

    To find their life?! I’m conflicted with that message, but intrigued by the story. Happy weekend!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I wish I could tell you more but it would be spoiling things. Such a wonderful story, Freda:)

  4. I am very curious, now, and want to know if she finds Paul…and if he is her destiny. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  5. Good choice. Gotta get to reading this. :-) I love her writing so I think it will be a great story.
