a non-stop read

What makes a book a non-stop read?

In the case of my book, Making Room for George, my readers tell me it’s that they can’t wait to find out what happens next.

This book is not a thriller and the only crimes committed are those of the heart, but there is plenty of suspense in what’s happening between the characters nevertheless.

Or the time Bet and Steve first meet on a double-date and steal a kiss plus a whole lot more in the yard between the houses while their dates sit drinking wine in the living room.

Or the time, many, many years later when Bet moves out of the closet she’s always shared with Steve and into a room of her own across the house from him.
