It's Tuesday . . . time for . . .
Today I'm featuring an upcoming read, For Whom the Book Tolls by Laura Gail Black. It's the first book in the Antique Bookshop mystery series. The excerpt shared is from an eBook borrowed from the library.
First Chapter: I sat in my car, squinting into the darkened alleyway. The streetlamp my uncle had mentioned seemed to be burned out, as no light cut through the moonless night. He'd said we weren't supposed to park behind the businesses, but an eerie chill skittered up my spine at the thought of parking here in the assigned lot at the end of the street and walking up the alley in the dark with only a flashlight and a duffle bag to protect myself.
What do you think? Would you continue reading?
I find that opening quite ominous and am curious about what will happen next.
