First Chapter Tuesday/Teaser Tuesday - June 12th

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 haven't started reading this yet but I'm hoping to read it sometime this summer...

First Chapter...


October 1941

The three young women stared down at the hole they'd just dug. Their gauzy pastel dresses were rumpled and slightly damp, and the heels of their dainty sandals made them teeter precariously on the rounded oyster shell mound. Their faces were flushed and shiny with perspiration. The fourth in the circle was only a girl of fourteen, dressed in a hand-me-down set of boy's overalls and a pair of worn leather shoes, her eyes wide with terror in a smooth, toffee colored face. The first shafts of sunlight shone softly through the thick intertwined branches of moss-hung live oaks.


"Nobody's going to find out," the redhead said. "We swore, didn't we?"

What do you think? Would you keep reading?

  5. After seeing the cover, the first chapter surprised me. They don't seem to go together. I'd keep reading.

  6. This does sound intriguing. The cover doesn't seem to match the beginning though. This week I am featuring A Merciful Silence by Kendra Elliot. Happy reading!

  7. Sure sounds different from what I was expecting after looking at the cover. Curious about it now.
