Oh, my, that is quite a scene! I haven't read this author in a while...time to return!

Here's mine: “BLUEPRINTS”

I can already feel the threat. Good writing.

That sounds scary and yes, I'd have to read on to see what happens. Hope you enjoy it!

Thanx for stopping by.
I guess I'm finicky because that first sentence seems run-on to me. If the whole book is written that way, it would bother me! However, I like the scene it portrayed. I hope you're enjoying the story.
My Tuesday post features THE ROSIE PROJECT.
A powerful opening! I'd have to keep reading!

That opens up a lot of possibilities, doesn't it? I would keep reading just to find out what they are up to.
JoAnn said…
I want to know what happens next...
Topazshell said…
I know. It's very hard to stop reading it.
That intro makes me want more! Enjoy
Margot said…
Good intro. I'd have to read a bit more before deciding to read all of it.
