Book Beginnings: The Orchid Affair

“That was a short flight,” I said, peering out the window as the wheels of our plane touched tarmac at Charles de Gaulle. It was amazing how short a flight could be when one was in no particulary hurry to arrive at one’s destination.
The Orchid Affair by Lauren Willig

This one doesn’t sound particularly intriguing, but it is one in a continuing series so it makes sense to the readers who have followed along 🙂

    That is the way things seem to work though….the more anxious you are to get somewhere, the longer it seems to take. If you don’t care, then you seem to be whisked there immediately.

    Here’s mine:

    I like that beginning. It sets the stage for location and makes my wonder why they aren’t eager to get there. I have just read the first book in this series and am eager to read more of them. Happy reading!

  3. It sounds like she’s dreading that destination…and, of course, it comes quickly. Thanks for sharing….
