Wow!! There was a great deal of character development in these short nineteen pages. Romantic nuances, without slipping into snappiness. The action hits fast and grips the reader, creating delicious tension. It is rare to find both elements so early in....characters that are interesting and/or relatable and palpable tension. I am extremely excited to finish reading this book. If the author is capable of maintaining this quality of writing, this book will be a big hit. Will the inevitable heartache be as skillfully conveyed? I am optimistic at this point. I suspect that this might be an author to watch.
