First Chapter ~ First Paragraph #97

  It's Tuesday . . . time for . . .


First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea, where bloggers post the first paragraph(s) of a book they are currently reading or planning to read sometime soon.

Today I'm featuring the opening from a book I'm reading for one of my book clubs . . .

We Are Water 


Rope-Skipping Girl
Gualtiero Agnello

August 2009

"I understand that there was some controversy about the coroner's ruling concerning Josephus Jones's death.  What do you think, Mr. Agnello?  Did he die accidentally or was he murdered?"


Part I
Art and Service

Chapter One
Annie Oh

Viveca's wedding dress has a name: Gaia.  It's lovely.  Layers of sea green silk chiffon, cap sleeves, an empire waist, an asymetrical A-line skirt with the suggestion of a train.  I forget the designer's name; Ianni something.  He's someone Viveca knows from the Hellenic Fashion Designers Association.  It arrived at the apartment from Athens yesterday, and Minnie has pressed it and hung it on the door of Viveca's closet.

What do you think?  Would you continue reading?  
What are you reading now or planning to read soon?
