KRISTINA STANLEY

Welcome once again to Mystery Mondays.

I first connected with Carol Balawyder when she graciously agreed to have me guest blog on her seriesHOW I GOT PUBLISHED.  DESCENT had been published less than a month previously, and I was nervous about guest blogging. Carol’s generous nature made it easy for me, and now I feel very lucky to have her guest blogging on my series.

Carol writes the The Getting To Mr. Right series.

Thank you so much Kristina for inviting me as a guest on your Mystery Monday series. It’s a true honor for me to be in the midst of so many flourishing writers.

James M. Jackson’s Guest

I am getting a bit shy about tooting my own horn.

I am really honored to be among two wonderful novelists! 🙂
Have a look at their books. You can check my review of Julia’s Violinist at http://www.amazon.com/Julias-Violinist-Anneli-Purchase-ebook/product-reviews/B00BI4TH3I/ref=cm_cr_dp_see_all_btm?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending

I’m looking forward to reading Patricia Sands Book of The Year Award Finalist novel. Bravo, Patricia.
And, of course, thank you, Anneli, for this wonderful series on opening lines. 🙂 I look forward to reading many more.

Anneli's Place

Here are three more books and their opening lines.

Assuming the book is in a genre that might interest you, do you want to continue reading after the first lines? The authors hope so. What do you think? Are you interested enough to turn the page? These books probably target women more than men, but we appreciate all opinions.

1. Getting to Mr. Rightby Carol Balawyder

Missi Morgan hoped this weekend would bring the magic back into her marriage with Max. She pictured the resort where they were going with its indoor pool, sauna and Jacuzzi and imagined how relaxed they would both feel, their daily preoccupations forgotten as they focused on the pleasure of being together.
