I'm reading an epic historical fiction, "Best Kept Secret" by Jeffrey Archer The quote is from page 56  in the large print hardcover.

"Yes, I'll be holding your hand throughout the trip," she said casually. "I usually stay in New York and allow a local publicist in each city to look after visiting authors but not this time, because  Mr. Guinzbugh insisted I wasn't to leave your side." She lightly touched his leg again, before turning a page of the folder on her lap.

  1. She doesn't sounds happy to be there. Hope you have a great weekend.

  2. Sounds like she's merely enduring this visiting author! Since I'm a writer, I'd enjoy reading this story -- to find out how it might be to have a publicist hold my hand!
    Here's the link to my Friday post: THE DOCTOR'S INDISCRETION.

  3. I wonder why Mr. Guinzbugh wanted her to stick close to him. All I can see in my head is an author and a publicist off on a road trip across America, which actually sounds like fun! Also, large print hardcover? That's amazing! I miss reading hardcovers since almost all my books now are paperback or Ebooks! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!

  4. That's definitely an intriguing passage! I agree that she doesn't seem particularly thrilled to be following this author around. I wonder why she has to?

  5. I've read the books before this in the series. . . I must get to this one soon. Enjoy!

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  6. This does pique my curiosity...and I am imagining all kinds of scenarios. Thanks for sharing and enjoy! Here's mine: “INTO THE DARKEST CORNER”

  7. She touched his leg! That's the part that grabbed me. :)

  8. I wonder what happens next :)

  9. Ooh interesting! Love the cover of this one, too.

  10. She sounds a little condescending.
