YOUR BOOK BEGINNING



MY BOOK BEGINNING



"My God! Follow that car!" I shouted, pointing emphatically beyond the gravel parking lot to the road ahead.
My friend Debbi shook her head. "Uh, excuse me. You're the only one who can see it," she said with a bemused smile as she turned the car onto the deserted road.

-- You Know Your Way Home by Suzanne Jauchius

This is such a terrific opening, it needed more than my usual one sentence! Suzanne Jauchius is a professional psychic and her memoir opens with a description of working on a 1989 child abduction case.

I'm as skeptical as anyone when it comes to psychics, but I heard Susan speak at a recent Bloom Book Lunch & Thrive event here in Portland and she has a really interesting life story. Her book is well written and reads like an adventure novel. I am completely sucked in!

That's a funny and interesting beginning! A memoir by a psychic, I've got to look in to that.

Interesting start!

I love fantasy novels and everything, but as for the "real life" stuff I don't really go in for it. I do like the opening of this book though. :)

Sounds good. Thanks for sharing.

Debbi sounds as though she's used to Suzanne seeing things no one else can! I think I'm probably too sceptical to read this book - but it does sound interesting and I'd like to know more.

It sounds like an interesting story, I can see the main character getting frustrated though at being the only one who sees things.
Great BB!

This is a memoir? How exciting. I've never read a memoir of a psychic. It sounds exciting, too.

Diane Coto said...

Really, definitely, sounds like one for the TBR list. :)
