Book Beginnings Friday: Merry Christmas, Alex Cross

Please join Rose City Reader every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.  Please remember to include the title of the book and the author.


 I'm reading Merry Christmas, Alex Cross by James Patterson:

The rear door to St. Anthony's Church had been left open. Exactly as I had been promised.

This is James Patterson's newest Alex Cross book and I was at the bookstore on Monday when they opened waiting to buy this. I'm only 25 pages in so far, but I can already tell that this is going to be a good one and am hoping to have some time this weekend to read the rest of the book!

Do you read James Patterson? Do you have an author you read that you count down the days until their newest release?

  2. Nice beginning. Why has the door been left open, though? My Friday post is HERE.

    1. It definitely makes you think...why they would need to be promised that the back door of a church would be left open???

  3. This beginning definitely grabs me and makes me want to read more. I haven't read any of the Alex Cross books so I must be missing some good stories!
    My post today features FLIGHT BEHAVIOR by Barbara Kingsolver.
