First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros/Teaser Tuesdays - April 21st

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 started to read this one. The teasers are from the ARC.

First Chapter... 


Many years ago, in Trespiano, Italy, Filomena Fontana, a plain bitter girl whose younger sister was blessed with beauty, cursed all second-born Fontana daughters to a life without love. Filomena resented her sister Maria from the first time she cast eyes on her, sweetly cradled in their mother's arms.


And her childhood jealousy only festered as the two blossomed into teens.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. Sounds like a good family saga. I'd keep reading.

  2. I do love a story with issues between family members. This one sounds good. Thanks for sharing.

  3. This one sounds pretty good to me. I'd try a bit more.

  4. I love stories about women, especially sisters and mothers and daughters.

  5. Sounds interesting and books about sisters are (one of) my weakness!
