Artificial Galahad in Jeans Jennifer Blake 1/2/17 Loc 427 “What you have there are flowers made of colored wax, the Victorian lady’s version of an artificial arrangement,” he said as he moved to stand beside Carla.

Fabric Skin Game Jim Butcher 1/3/17 p 75 Lots of red fabric draped in swaths from the ceiling to create semi-curtained partitions, ...

Fatal Hell on Wheels Julie Ann Walker 1/9/17 p 35 ...contrive a fatal car crash like the one that’d befallen that FBI agent who’d gotten too curious.

Freak Skin Game Jim Butcher 1/3/17 p 36 Look, when the next freak burns down my place, maybe I won't get as lucky as last time.

Hunt Lancelot of the Pines Jennifer Blake 1/1/17 Loc 1443 As out of place as a bat at an Easter egg hunt, it was exactly like the one that had trailed her so often in New Orleans.

Machine Lancelot of the Pines Jennifer Blake 1/1/17 Loc 2356 However, watching the sheriff hunt around in a cabinet next to the coffee machine and then bring out a small tape recorder almost changed her mind.

Missing Lancelot of the Pines Jennifer Blake 1/1/17 Loc 75 Your husband’s missing under suspicious circumstances and may be dead.

Profile 31 Days of Winter C.J. Fallowfield 1/10/17 Loc 2294 I let my eyes enjoy watching his handsome side profile, he had a slight frown of concentration as he watched the road up ahead.

Sex The Year We Fell Down Sarina Bowen 1/4/17 p 73 “Callahan, do you mean sex?”

For our over-achievers who just need some extra words because the above weren't enough...

Unlike with the 10 words above - you must find the EXACT word to claim these bonus words, and I try to make them hard.

Blossom Galahad in Jeans Jennifer Blake 1/2/17 Loc 2790 The great front portico of the house was banked with flowers on either side of the door, literally hundreds of pots on tiered racks, each filled with that multi-award-winning multi-award-winning blossom, the pride of Windwood Daylily Farm known as Carla’s Ball Gown.

Clot The Year We Fell Down Sarina Bowen 1/4/17 p 241 I'd had major surgery for a blood clot pressing against my spinal cord.

Elaborate Galahad in Jeans Jennifer Blake 1/2/17 Loc 2574 An elaborate spring wreath in shades of lavender and aqua decorated Diane the Dragon Lady’s apartment door.


Luminous Skin Game Jim Butcher 1/3/17 p 1 Every few yards, more or less at random, there was a mound of luminous pale green quartz crystals. 

To prove that you have found the word, please quote the page, percentage or LOC (Kindle) and include the sentence in which it appears.

Audiobooks are allowed so long as you can quote the page/%/LOC and the sentence. (Eg Using whispersync or finding that sentence in some other way.)

You must find the actual word or the word's root word must be at the core with the meaning essentially remaining the same ~ just turned into a noun, adjective, adverb etc. No prefixes or hyphenated extensions. An extension is allowed where it is often the accepted spelling eg goodbye or good-bye.

Where a word has more than one meaning, either meaning may be used. Eg coast (beachfront) or coast (moving without effort) etc

Please post all entries, updates, final posts and questions in this thread.
