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 paragraph from Picking Lemons: A C.J. Whitmore Mystery by J.T. Toman, which was gifted to me by the author for an upcoming blog tour organized by Escape With Dollycas. My review will be posted on January 30th.
When people looked at Edmund DeBeyer, they saw the remnants of a handsome, affable man. At just over six feet with unruly, black hair and intense, blue eyes, Edmund DeBeyer had been considered the most eligible bachelor in the Ivy league when a student. The young Edmund had started a promising career in pre-med, with the idea of curing cancer or vaccinating the poor in Africa. But with a quick analysis of the hours worked to dollars earned ratio, he became an economics major instead.
What do you think? Would you continue reading?I love novels about faculty and colleges, so when I had the opportunity to sign on for a blog tour of this book, I jumped at the chance. Based on the first paragraph, there are interesting characters in store.
