Tuesday Intros~ While We Were Watching Downton Abbey by Wendy Wax






Every Tuesday Diane @ Bibliophile by the Sea hosts First Chapter, First Paragraph where we share the first paragraph or two of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon.  Feel free to grab the image and participate.



My Tuesday Intro pick is While We Were Watching Downton Abbey by Wendy Wax. I am a big fan of Downton Abbey and Wendy Wax so this is a great combination! 


As a child Samantha Jackson Davis loved fairy tales as much as the next girl. She just hadn’t expected to end up in one. 
Every morning when her eyes fluttered open and every night before she closed them to go to sleep, Samantha marveled at her good fortune. In a Disney version of the airline passenger held up in security just long enough to miss the plane that goes down, or the driver who runs back for a forgotten cell phone and barely avoids a deadly ten-car pileup, Samantha averted disaster in the once-upon-a-time way: she married the prince.  
Over the past twenty-five years Samantha had sometimes wished she’d spent a little more time and energy considering alternatives. But when your world comes crashing down around you at the age of twenty-one, deep thinking and soul-searching are rarely your first response.



What do you think? Would you keep on reading 
or move on to something else?

  2. I can't wait to read this book. Almost got my hands on a copy this week at a book swap, but someone else got to it first. I'm next to read it when it gets returned at next month's swap.

  5. I'm a big fan too. I think I'd need to read more. The opening seemed a little choppy to me. I do like Wendy Wax so I'm pretty sure it will get better.
