Sampler books are a great way to find authors whose styles you just may love. Each sample included is usually the first chapter of a book.
After that first chapter, you probably know whether or not you like the story and the author's voice.
No need to buy a book that you may not like--or buy one only to return it--which makes the author feel bad when he/she studies her sales reports. *g*
