It's Tuesday . . . time for . . .
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 an upcoming read, The Summer I Met Jack by Michelle Gable. The excerpt shared is from a hardcover version borrowed from the library.
A man sits on a patio, wrapped in a blanket and staring out to sea. It is cold in California this time of year, though much better than in New York, which is why he winters on this coast. He is old enough to do what he wants. Let someone else worry about logistics at the office, who's billing what hours, and the clients they should woo. He's sworn a hundred times he'll retire. Soon. Very soon.
What do you think? Would you continue reading?
This novel is a fictional account of the love affair between Alicia Corning Clark and Jack Kennedy which began in 1950, years before he became president. I have always been fascinated by the Kennedys, so am looking forward to reading this book.
