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 an upcoming read, The Daylight Marriage by Heidi Pitlor, borrowed from the library.
The Daylight Marriage 
Chapter 1
Later, in weaker moments, Lovell Hall reminded himself of the logical fallacy that young scientists so often committed: Post hoc, ergo propter hoc.  After this, therefore because of this.   Of course, without certain information--and in the face of other unfortunate realities--the timing of that evening with his wife was impossible to ignore.
What do you think?  Would you continue reading?
I am intrigued by the title, and when I saw this novel on the library shelf, I decided to add it to my upcoming reading.  There are quotes from Geraldine Brooks and Tom Perrotta on the back cover, so I'm anticipating a good story.  The opening paragraph is enough of a teaser to want to find out more about the Hall relationship.
