MY BOOK BEGINNING
I close my eyes.-- Fortune's Deadly Descent by Audry Braun. That's a pretty short opening sentence that doesn't tell much. But it immediately gets very interesting because the heroine closes her eyes to be hypnotized by an Interpol investigator trying to help her remember her son's kidnapping. And we're off!
This is the second in a series that started with A Small Fortune. If this one is even half the rip-roaring fun of the first, it's going to be a hit.
Braun is the pen name of novelist Deborah Reed, author of Carry Yourself Back to Me, a Best Book of 2011 Amazon Editors' Pick.
