Last night I started reading a new book and before I finished the first paragraph, I was hooked. I went back to the top of the page and reread a few sentences. Have you ever read a section of a book and wondered how you got to the end of the paragraph? It wasn't jarring or a struggle. I didn't have to make concessions or allowances in hopes the author would win me over at a later point in the story. No. The words floated me easily to the end of the thought. Needless to say, I settled into a comfortable position on the couch and thought, my, my, my, I am in for a good read. This is my first experience with Anne Perry but if the first few pages are any indication...ahhhhh.
