First Chapter ~ First Paragraph

It's Tuesday . . . time for . . . 


. . . First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros . . . now hosted by Yvonne at Socrates' Book Reviews, where bloggers share excerpts from a book they have read, are currently reading, or are planning to read.
 

Happy publishing day to my current read, Don't Look by Alexandra Ivy.  It's the first book in the Pike, Wisconsin series.  The excerpt shared is from an advance reader copy I received from the publisher via Net Galley.

Don't Look (Pike, Wisconsin #1)

First Chapter:  Eyes aren't the windows to the soul, funerals are.

They reveal precisely how the deceased lived their lives, and how those who remain behind want them to be remembered.


What do you think?  Would you continue reading?

The opening lines are quite striking and immediately engage my curiousity--who died?  How did they live their life?  How will they be remembered?  
 
Don't Look is a fast-paced suspenesful thriller with a killer on the loose in rural Wisconsin.
