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:

Spiral Of Hooves

  by Roland Clarke



Genre: Mystery

My 56 from the Paperback

She thought she had made her decision, but why was she apprehensive? She was tempted to close her eyes, but staggered up and gazed out through the bungalow’s curtains at the woods behind. Hunting owls flickered like ghosts in the moonlight, their quavering hoots spurring her to prioritize her aching body.


Read on if you want to know more.


In Canada, researcher Armand Sabatier witnesses what could be the murder of groom Odette Fedon, but traumatic images from his past smother his memory, and a snowstorm buries the evidence. Harassed by nightmares but fighting through them, Armand remembers the crime a few months later. By then he is in England, where he is dragged into a plot involving international sport horse breeding.

Suspecting everyone around him, Armand is forced to brave the past that he has kept buried. But what made Armand leave France? Where did he learn to survive and fight for justice? Why is the English rider Carly Tanner treading the same path as the first victim, Odette?

Can he save Carly before he has more blood on his hands?



There are two covers for this book.

The first is for the paperback and the second is for the eBook.

I used the first one for the post as it’s the one I own.

      I do love horses. Been a while since I’ve come across a book with them featured in it too.

  2. What a gorgeous cover, and interesting premise. Thanks for sharing, and here’s mine: “WATCH ME DISAPPEAR”

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I know. The horse and rider almost leap off the cover! I’m excited to get started on this one:)

  3. Kathy Martin says:

    This sounds like a book I would enjoy. I’ll have to add it to my list. My teasers are from a historical mystery – A Conspiracy in Belgravia by Sherry Thomas. Happy reading!

  4. I like the first cover better and I think it sounds good so I hope you enjoy it! :)

    I love the paperback copy more. It is so eye-catching! This one sounds like a fantastic thriller. I hope that you love it. :)

    • fuonlyknew says:

      It sure does sound exciting. I’m leaning towards the paperback cover too. Though I love those hoof prints in the eBook cover.

  9. I am intrigued! This sounds like it will be a very intense book. I hope you enjoy it! I am not sure which of the two covers I like more.

    Have a great weekend and thank you for sharing!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I’m intrigued by this story too. I’m torn about the covers. Both work well for the synopsis. But that bold cover with the horse and rider is winning me over:)
