First Chapter ~ First Paragraph #124

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 an upcoming read, Somebody I Used to Know by David Bell, borrowed from the library.

 Somebody I Used to Know 


When I saw the girl in the grocery store, my heart stopped.

I had turned the corner into the dairy aisle, carrying a basket with just a few items in it.  Cereal.  Crackers.  Spaghetti.  Beer.  I lived alone, worked a lot, and rarely cooked.  I was checking a price when I almost ran into the girl.  I stopped immediately and studied her in profile, her hand raised to her mouth while she examined products through the glass door of the dairy cooler.

I felt like I was seeing a ghost.

What do you think?  Would you continue reading?
I saw this book on several blogs over the summer, and since I enjoy psychological thrillers, I am looking forward to reading this new-to-me author.
