First Chapter ~ First Paragraph #28 and Tuesday Teaser


First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros is a weekly meme hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea. It's an opportunity to share the first paragraph(s) of a book I am currently reading or planning to read sometime soon.

This week I'm featuring the opening paragraphs from Sew Deadly by Elizabeth Lynn Casey, which I purchased a while ago and plan to read soon.  This book is the first in the Southern Sewing Circle Series of cozy mysteries.

Read on after the intro for my Tuesday Teaser.

 Sew Deadly (Southern Sewing Circle Series #1)   
Publisher:  Penguin Group (USA) Incorporated/Berkley Crime
Publication Date:  August 4, 2009

Chapter 1

She wasn't entirely sure whether it was the pull of the mahogany sewing box in the window or a much-needed respite from the endless barrage of curious glances, but either way. Elkin Antiques and Collectibles seemed as good a place as any for a momentary escape.

Switching the paper sack of lightbulbs to her left hand, Tori Sinclair pushed the glass door open, her presence greeted by a wall-mounted bell and a cocked eyebrow from the sixty-something woman behind the counter.

What do you think?  Would you continue reading?  I was sold based on the profession of the main character.  "Yankee" librarian Tori Sinclair must win over the residents of her new community as she settles into a new life and job in the small town of Sweet Briar, South Carolina.  Tori seems to be making strides, but then things hit a major road bump when Tori must clear her name as a murder suspect.
Teaser Tuesdays, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading, is a weekly event where bloggers open to a random page and share a teaser from somewhere on that page--no spoilers allowed.
Here's my teaser from Sew Deadly by Elizabeth Lynn Casey:
"All eyes turned on the new librarian.  Including those belonging to an unfamiliar woman in her seventies."
~ p. 47
