My book beginnings is taken from THE WIFE BETWEEN US by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen:


"She walks briskly down the city sidewalk, her blond hair bouncing against her shoulders, her cheeks flushed, a gym bag looped over her forearm.  When she reaches her apartment building, her hand dips into her purse and pulls out her keys.  The street is loud and busy, with yellow cabs racing by, commuters returning from work, and shoppers entering the deli on the corner.  But my eyes never stray from her."

    1. I will be looking forward to your thoughts on THE WIFE BETWEEN US.

      An interesting read with a lot of twists and confusion. :)

      It was good, but I am still scratching my head.

      Brilliant on the part of the authors.

      Thanks for stopping, Laurel.
