Book Beginnings #7

For Book Beginnings, Rose City Reader invites us 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.

I am currently reading Wickham Hall  - Part Three: Sparks Fly by Cathy Bramley.
The tiny cottage I shared with my mum was a mere fifteen-minute walk from Wickham Hall, along a narrow side street at the far end of the village. But this afternoon it felt like the longest journey I'd ever made, every step taking me nearer to the truth about my father but further from Wickham Hall and further still from Ben and his mischievous brown eyes and cheeky smile.

I've had this pre-ordered for a long time, and it picks up exactly where part two dropped off. I never thought I'd be a fan of serialised stories, but I'm really enjoying them recently. I quite like the wait, the excitement when it drops onto my kindle at midnight, taking time to really savour the story. And, it's working out cheaper buying the parts separately that it would be to buy the complete finished work, so bonus.
