Definition of A Page Turner

on October 10, 2010 in Reviews

I am a picky reader. If a book doesn’t grab me I won’t push on through to see if it gets any better past maybe the first 50 pages. That said, A BOARDWALK STORY was honestly a book I could not put down! I true page turner.

Not only did it draw me in with wonderful details of time and place, and historical context, but the story itself is exciting and keeps you guessing. I never got ahead of it. If you like a little adventure and intrigue with your historical novels this won’t let you down.

Finally, mark my words, you read it here first: this book is going to make a terrific movie– but don’t wait for the film. Read it now!
