Riveting.........

I looked at the clock.  It was 1:40 AM.  No, it couldn't be.........

I've been so captured by this story that I just could not put it down.  I turned out the light and left the rest of the book for the morning.







Have you ever been so caught up in a story that you felt like you were really there?  Well that is what award winning author Dan Walsh does for me.  I have read six of his novels and they are each captivating in their own way.  Many of his books are based on real events. Walsh is a masterful storyteller. He has the ability to draw you in, like you are the third party in the story.  I have always enjoyed authors who can do that.  The first book I read, The Reunion, was on my Kindle.  Then I read Remembering Christmas.  By then I was hooked.   


Yep, I'm already looking forward to his next book. They just keep getting better and better.
