First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, now hosted by Vicki at I'd Rather Be At The Beach, 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, Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh. The excerpts shared are from a large print paperback version borrowed from the library.
Death does not suit me. I wear it like a borrowed coat; it slips off my shoulders and trails in the dirt. It is ill fitting. Uncomfortable.
What do you think? Would you continue reading?
I am still trying to catch my breath after attending Library Journal's Day of Dialog and Book Expo America last week. The first book I gravitated toward after these events is a psychological thriller, which is a genre that always grabs my attention from the opening pages. Let Me Lie has the qualities I look for in the genre--a complicated family situation and a mystery to unravel. It's been a page-turner so far.
