Book Beginnings for June 4th

It's time for this week's Book Beginnings on Friday.

I'm a little embarrassed to admit I've only been reading one book all week, especially since it is a reread of a kid's mystery I thought I would have finished by now.  I'm reading The Mystery of the Missing Heiress, the 16th Trixie Belden book by "Kathryn Kenny."  The series is not known for their great first chapters or opening sentences, but here you go.

"Honk the Horn!" Trixie Belden called excitedly and put her hand over Brian's tanned fingers.
Okay, so that's not quite the worst one in the series, but it doesn't do a whole lot to grab me.

No, it's not a grabber, but I hope you enjoy the book!!

This isn't a favorite in the series, but it's been so long since I spent any time with these characters (and I absolutely love them), that I've enjoyed it despite myself.
