First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros/Teaser Tuesdays - April 14th

It's Tuesday!  It's time to share your excerpts and teasers from books we are currently reading, have read or are planning to read.  So, feel free to join us by sharing the first paragraph or (a few) of a book you are reading or thinking about reading soon.  This meme is guaranteed to increase your TBR :)

Please link your blog post using Mr. Linky below. Make sure the link you enter is the direct link to your Tuesday post, not the main link to your blog. Thank you!

I, also, participate and link up to Teaser Tuesdays.  Here's info about that meme:

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 just finished reading this one. A short story and the first book in a cozy mystery series.

First Chapter... 

The fall wind blew quick and cold, racing through the main street as if being chased, and lifted the woman's skirt playfully before darting away. The woman in question quickly dropped her bags as she pressed her skirt down, protecting her modesty. She was aware that people were stopping to give her dirty looks. Whispering among themselves before quickly walking off.


Life was simple, uncomplicated and she knew exactly where she was going. Then, she got a phone call from the wife of the one persion she could never say no to.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. Oh, yes, I love the sound of this one, and I am drawn to books that are the first in a series. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I really think this might be a fun read; enjoy

  3. Sounds like she's not welcomed in the community. I wonder why? Good teasers!

  4. It is intriguing! I also love that cover and wish we could go away on holiday there, right now!!!

  5. This is new to me and it sounds appealing. I'd keep reading.

  6. That first paragraph seems ominous! Looks like a good read.
