First Chapter ~ First Paragraph

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 my current read,  Alice and the Assassin  . . .

Chapter 1
Mariah always said that I'd do anything for a pretty face, and she might be right, but I guess I'm not that different from most other men.  And I'd like to meet the one who could refuse Alice when she challenged you.  In all fairness, though, it wasn't just because she was pretty--Alice may have had her mother's face and figure, but she was her father's daughter through and through.  And in the end, I don't care what Mariah says--I don't have a single regret.

What do you think?  Would you continue reading?
This is the first Alice Roosevelt Mystery, a series I've been wanting to start since its publication in April 2017.  I'm happy to have now entered Alice's world.  In true Roosevelt fashion, Alice is a daring, adventurous woman ahead of her time, and Koreto has her delightfully leaping off the page as she investigates the assassination of President William McKinley, her father's predecessor in the Oval Office.

Note:  The excerpt shared is from a hardcover version borrowed from the library.
