Staring down at the man on the bed, I couldn’t help but suspect the coincidence. What were the chances he’d be brought in on my first day at the hospital?
This beginning is awesome. I can’t wait to see who this man is (though I have a suspicion), and to see what comes next. But honestly? It wouldn’t matter if the first sentences were “Hi. My name is Tod.” because I am just SO excited to read this book! After reading the first 4.5 books of this series, I LOVE Tod so much, that I can’t wait to read a book (novella, whatever) about him!
