Book Review - First Ten Pages - Out of Sight by Melissa Klein

As a reader, if my interest isn't stirred in the first ten pages of a book, it's most likely I won't take the time to read the rest of the story. First impressions do matter...

So, what exactly is the point of a ten page review? Obviously, it's not the story itself, the effectiveness of the plot development, the quality of character development, or the overall talent of the author. What I'm reviewing is the author's ability to draw me into their story in just a few pages. Can they give me a sense of place and time, set the tone of the story, make me care about their protagonist, and give me an impelling reason to keep reading. In today's competitive market, an author only gets a few pages to make all that happen for a reader. The rating reflects my view on those elements. It doesn't reflect on the whole book, since I haven't read the entire story. So I encourage those who read these reviews to keep that in mind and to peruse other whole-book reviews to help make your buying decisions.

Review Rating: ***** Totally Hooked - Can't Put It Down

Review Comments:
Mia Jones has just woken from a coma and is recovering nicely, just not fast enough for her liking. For a lawyer, recovering short term memory, relearning to read, and standing without wobbling were essential elements that she'd always taken for granted, until now. Would she ever again be able to practice the vocation she loved? Her life-long friend Hank Taggart was her only haven of peace and security. It should have been her fiance who gave her that feeling, but it wasn't happening.

Yep, I'm definitely hooked. I'd love to read the rest of this story. Great beginning

Quote from Book:

Holding Mia in his arms felt more right than anything in a long while, which was why he needed to get gone. She belonged to another man—
