Today’s quotes comes from Twelve Sharp by Janet Evanovich
(If you have no idea what this segement is about, read this post.)
“I was leaking nervous fear, sweating in places I didn’t think had sweat glands.”
“Two uniformed guards stood back watching the shoppers. The woman looked like she’d gained some weight since they’d issued her uniform.”
“I realised that sometime during the kiss I’d inserted my leg between his and had plastered myself to him in all the strategic places. I inched away and smoothed out the wrinkles where I’d gripped his shirt.”
“He was a good friend, and he was married to my cousin Shirley the Whiner.”
Why do I like them?
They’re funny. Pretty simple, really. Twelve Sharp is actually the only Janet Evanovich book I’ve read (and I hear they’re all pretty similar). While it’s not my usual genre, sometimes it’s nice just to have a good laugh.
