In Gone the first sentence hooked me, and I immediately asked questions, lots of them.
First sentence. 'In Seven minutes her mother was being executed.'
Whaaaatttttt???? Why, what happened? How come? I kept reading.
The Heroine is a Special Agent, Clare Marshall. (Now I've been keeping away from all the cop type stories, but this one didn't have cops running around everywhere etc.)
'Clare had been five when her mother pointed a gun at her head.'
Another sentence a few paragraphs later. What, why????
The mother had shot her brother, and she has a little sister.
The story was amazing, well done, and so so suspenseful. I loved it. If you like romantic suspense this is a book you must read. :)
Okay, off to do some more NaNo Words. lol. :) Have a lovely day, :)
