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, Everything We Keep by Kerry Lonsdale, borrowed from the library.
 Everything We Keep 

Part One
Gem City of the Foothills
Los Gatos, California
Chapter 1
On our wedding day, my fiance, James, arrived at the church in a casket.
For years I'd dreamed of him waiting for me at the altar, wearing that smile he reserved just for me.  It never failed to make my insides flip.  But instead of walking down the aisle toward my best friend, my first and only love, I was at his funeral.
What do you think?  Would you continue reading?
The opening line is definitely unique and a sure fire attention-getter.  The story thus far is engaging as I learn more about the back story and Aimee's attempts to put her life back together.
