First Chapter Review: Time and Forever by Susan B. James
Time and Forever by Susan B. James is a time travel romance novel. I read the first chapter from the sample on Amazon.
BLURB: When Sherry's best friend, Lorena, promises her a virtual reality adventure for her sixty-third birthday, neither of them expect a trip back in time. But when Sherry bumps into the handsome stranger she’d once kissed on a London train in the summer of ‘69, she knows it couldn't be anything else.
And this time she doesn't want to run.
COVER: What a superb cover. It captures the setting, the genre, and the ticket used to enter the virtual reality adventure in one attractive and eye-catching package. Well done.
FIRST CHAPTER: Celebrating her sixty-third birthday with her best friend, Lorena, Sherry admits to missing having a special someone around to share her life with. Now that she's alone, Sherry is looking for a bit of adventure. That's when Lorena mentions a place she's heard about that offers virtual reality adventures. So the two women decide to sign up to visit London in 1969.
KEEP READING: What a neat first chapter. The opening lines hook you right away and encourage you to continue. I like how James has blended mature women with adventure seeking and modern technology. You don't often find a romance novel featuring people in their sixties, so this makes it a fresh story worth exploring. The friendly banter between the two women is funny and true to life. I'm eager to see where the story goes from here.
