First Chapter ~ First Paragraph #109

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 borrowed from the library . . .

Note:  FOLLY was originally published August 13, 2013 as COLD in eBook format.


How long had it taken to change a life forever?  A minute, ninety seconds - while he listened, barely understanding, as two men destroyed his own young innocence, and allowed another child to die?



Privacy and peace.

Early the previous year, Alex Bailey-Jones had come home from London to the Cotswold Hills, to Folly-on-Weir, to bury herself in familiar surrounding and to become too busy to live in the past.

What do you think?  Would you continue reading?
I'm excited to start reading this book because the Cotswolds village setting appeals to me, and I'm always eager to begin a new mystery series.
