First Chapter Tuesdays/Teaser Tuesdays - December 17th

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'll be reading this one soon...

First Chapter... 

Heather Hampton buttoned up her favorite wool cardigan - lilac with white piping - and shoved her hands into the pockets. The sky was lightening, colored by the first rays of sunlight, the air still and fresh. After all, mid-October, even in the northern part of New Zealand Northland, could be chilly. Particularly before 7 o'clock in the morning.


Funny, how she had quickly become interested in her neighbors' lives. She had only been living in Dolphin Cove for a month, but she had already taken up some of the local customs.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. I'm wondering why she moved! A great start that promises to be full of family goings on!

    Hope you have a great Tuesday. Here is my Tuesday post. Enjoy your day!

  2. It sounds like it would be a fun read. See what Christmas themed book we are featuring at Girl Who Reads

  3. I like the sound of this one...and the setting draws me in.

    Here's mine: “MEG & JO”

  4. I'd keep reading! I love the cover.
