"They tell me I will die here." ~ Guilty Wives by James Patterson
"I loved New York with the kind of mad passion I reserved for only one other thing in my life." ~ Reflected in You: A Crossfire Novel by Sylvia Day
"It is said that love is comfort, and that comfort comes from recognition of the beloved." ~ The Angry Woman Suite by Lee Fullbright
"The missing girl—there had been unceasing news reports, always flashing to that achingly ordinary school portrait of the vanished teen, you know the one, with the rainbow-swirl background, the girl's hair too straight, her smile too self-conscious, then a quick cut to the worried parents on the front lawn, microphones surrounding them, microphones surrounding them, Mom silently tearful, Dad reading a statement with quivering lip—that girl, that missing girl, had just walked past Edna Skylar." ~ Promise Me by Harlan Coben
