    "Ashley never makes a mistake," said Tom.

    "It must be hard being so perfect," Mary added.

    "I believe it is," grinned Samantha "But then, I am only guessing. Lord knows I've made my share of mistakes."

    Note that you need a comma after each quote. Also you need a new paragraph for each speaker.
