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, is 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, Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty.  The excerpt shared is from an ARC I received from the publisher before the book's publication in November 2018.  




CHAPTER 1
Yao

'I'm fine,' said the woman.  "There's nothing wrong with me.'

She didn't look fine to Yao.

******************************************************************************************
So begins Liane Moriary's latest novel . . .

What do you think?  Would  you keep reading?
As I said, I've had this book in my possession for quite some time, and had hoped to begin it way before now.  I've enjoyed other books by this author, and I find the setting for the story--a health spa in Australia called Tranquillum House--both intriguing and different.  So, when the book was the suggested read for one of my book clubs, I was eager to start it.  I've only read the first few chapters, which present the character introductions.  I'm liking the book so far . . .

I tried listening to this one, but, too many characters to make it work on audio. I'll try the print sometime. ENJOY

I've seen a lot of people talking about this book. The cover is similar to another book I read, so I'm always confused at first glance. lol. I hope you enjoy it.
