#Friday56 – The Carpet Cipher

Happy VE Day / Bank Holiday / Friday Bibliofriends!

I hope you have been having a good week. I am looking forward to spending the Bank Holiday by catching up on some reading and blog-hopping. Drop me a comment if you want me to stop by your posts.

This week’s Friday 56 comes from my most recent Netgalley read, The Carpet Cipher by Jane Thornely.

Hosted by Freda’s Voice, the Friday 56 is a weekly bookish prompt. It’s quite easy to do and could cover no end of different books and genres so seems great if you’re looking for a quick snippet to discover something new!


*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post here in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.
*It’s that simple.

I admit that knowing he was watching my back was fortifying. Forget that it was unlikely he could get to me quickly, anyway. Right then, I was focused on being inside a weaving studio alone. It was like standing inside a cathedral, hushed and hallowed with all that I revered. But I had to get to work.

The Carpet Cipher is a historical mystery thriller which sees textile and carpet lover Phoebe McCabe get entangling in a murder investigation and treasure hunt spanning Venice and Marrakech. The plot features on the use of carpets and textiles depicted in two notable artworks and the deeper meanings/symbology which they convey.

I received a free copy of this e-book thanks to Netgalley and the publishers BooksGoSocial / Riverflow Press in exchange for an honest review. Full review up tomorrow!

Are you into your historical mystery thrillers and conspiracies? What would be your top picks? How are you spending the Bank Holiday weekend? As always, drop me a comment to chat!
