  1. That quote sure has me wondering what will happen next. I think I need to read a good detective story.

  2. Usually that kind of statement means the character will do just that, in this case get involved. I really like the cover of this book.

  4. That line is so stereotypical. It is just what you expect to be written before she falls head over heals for the guy.

  9. LOL
    Makes me think of that playfully snarky line, "Sounds like the famous last words of a fool" ;)
    Great teaser.
    I bet these too get it bad for each other.
