First Lines … ‘Fleeting Memory’ by Sherban Young


1 – A Slight Lapse

This Title Available From Amazon


And a pretty rotten morning at that.

Maybe it was the rain pounding on the window behind my head (or the tiny 1812 Overture pounding between my ears) but I hadn’t slept well. In fact now that I really thought about it, I couldn’t say for sure that I had slept at all.

I felt like hell…

I think I must have rolled over on my other side at this point. I remember gazing up at my rustic living room ceiling …. At my rustic living room walls and furniture …. And finally at my rustic living room floor as I toppled of the sofa with a thud. A couple seconds later someone started beating away at the front door, which rounded the thing out nicely.”

This book is described by the author, Sherban Young as, a mystery caper and a comic adventure that won’t easily be forgotten.

I really need to read on, to find out why this person has a headache, why they haven’t slept, why they are on the sofa and not in bed, what they have had a ‘slight lapse’ from, and who the heck is pounding on the front door on such a wet morning!!!!

Of course, if you are as intrigued as I am, you can always click on the image to access the Amazon link, where you can read a full synopsis.

This book has been sent to me as a PDF file, by the author, who has kindly requested me to read and review. I am looking forward to a light-hearted, slightly tongue-in-cheek, fun read…. A great weekend read, I think!!!

Oh! and I just love the cover art LOL!

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
