Have you ever postponed starting a new book because of the avalanche of rave reviews that you read? Maybe I subscribe to too many book review tweeters and bloggers? Maybe too many authors are heavy-handed with retweets?
That's something for me to ponder because it delayed my reading of Jane Harper's current novel, Force of Nature.
Three pages in and I was hooked. That's important to me.
There are way too many novels published for me to be able to read every one that I want. So it's important that a novel 'grab' me within the first couple of chapters otherwise I put it aside and move on to another book. Life's too short to force my way through stories I don't enjoy.
Force of Nature is a fabulous mystery. Five women go on a team-building corporate retreat and only four return. Each one of the four tells a slightly different account of what happened. What really did occur?
