First Chapter Tuesday/Teaser Tuesday - May 22nd

Every Tuesday Vicki at I'd Rather Be At the Beach hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where we share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon. Care to join us?

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, now being hosted by Ambrosia at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I'm about to start reading this one...

First Chapter...

All roads lead home. That thought mingled with the soothing sound of Debussy as Cara descended from the majestic highlands of Tennessee toward the sultry lowcountry of South Carolina. Her brand new red station wagon wound its way past racing rivers and creeks that flowed south to the ocean, past billboards advertising fireworks, fruit stands, deserted gas stations, and tumbledown antique shops. Signs of spring - yellow jasmine blooms against lush greens - dotted the countryside. From time to time a flock of birds would fill the sky, and she would crane her neck to watch them migrating north. A short laugh escaped her lips. We are all heading home to nest, Cara thought.


Linnea shook her head and wondered what kind of trouble her brother was going to get into this time.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. I keep meaning to pick up one of her books. But there is just too many books and not enough time. Girl Who Reads

  2. I have loved some books in this series, so I've been eyeing this one. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “THE GUNNERS”

  3. This is an author I haven't come across before - looks good. I hope you enjoy it.

  4. Great beginning. I love the description. I've been seeing this book around but have never read the author. This week I have Willnot by James Sallis. Happy reading!

  5. This one is already on my list ... so Yes! I'd keep reading.

  6. I love this opening, so I would keep reading!

  7. I like the teaser and this one is already high up on my TBR. Sounds like a great beach read!

  8. I like the intro and the teaser!

  9. I love the author's Beach books. This one looks like it's also going to be great.

  10. This sounds like a fun pool side read. Such a lovely cover too.
