First Chapter ~ First Paragraph

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 my current read, The One That Got Away by Leigh Himes, which I borrowed from a librarian friend.

The One That Got Away: A Novel 


F**k you, Marc Jacobs.  Those were the words running through my mind right before I fell backward and flipped over the side of the Nordstrom escalator.



The day before my accident started like every other morning of my life: pure chaos.  The dog was barking, the baby was screaming, my daughter had wet the bed again, and my husband, Jimmy, was long gone to one of his landscaping jobs.  Jimmy usually left around five in the morning, silently finding his clothes, lunch, and work boots before slipping out the back door like a cat burglar.

What do you think?  Would you continue reading?   
Who hasn't daydreamed about how life would have turned out if they'd chosen to marry another suitor?  Abbey Lahey will find out how dramatically different her life would have been in this humorous contemporary novel.  It's a perfect summer escape.
