American Ghost by Janis Owens

"Though rumors of Jolie Hoyt's star-crossed romance with Sam Lense would dog her reputation for many years to come, in truth their grand affaire was a little short of grand: barely three months long, and as quickly ended as it had begin."

"Star-crossed" is always an intriguing phrase, and I am wondering who this Jolie is, that a short affair would affect her reputation for years.

That is exactly the kind of detailed opening sentence that I love. It gives a little nutshell outline of the whole story. Terrific!

Thanks for participating in Book Beginnings on Friday!
