Spider Web by Earlene Fowler - Beginning Sentences

Spider Web (Benni Harper Mystery)

Music flowed out of the old ranch house's open front door like a wash of honey water - "Are you Lonesome Tonight?"
Elvis Presley's unmistakable voice rose and surrounded me as I watched from a small rise a hundred yards away. The damp, drooping branches of a pepper-scented valley oak camouflaged me and my horse from whomever was inspecting my former home. Trixie, a new mare my father bought last week, shifted beneath me. (Ch. 1)
