SAVED by Kate Morgenroth (Harper Torch, c2002, ISBN 0-06-109775-6) was the last book I read in 2006.

First sentence:
"If you want to hear a story about someone who really pulled some crazy shit, I should tell you about this fishing boat captain my father knew," Andy said.

In this book, Ellie Somers pilots for the Coast Guard in Sitka, Alaska. When a mission goes bad and someone dies, Ellie hands in her wings and feeling sorry for herself, heads to fabulous Las Vegas with Nicholas, a man she rescued just days before her failed flight, only to get dragged into something much darker.

This book has a likeable albeit strong female lead character and of course, it is, in part, set in one of my favorite places in the world.

This book was a great ending to a great year of fun reads!

Stay tuned for more first sentences by the authors and reading reviews by moi in two-thousand-and-seven.
