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.

Today I'm featuring an upcoming read. Night Music by Jojo Moyes. The excerpt shared is from an eBook borrowed from the library.

First Chapter:  Laura McCarthy closed her back door, stepped over the sleeping dog that was dribbling peacefully onto the gravel, and walked briskly across the garden to the back gate. Balancing the laden tray on one arm, she opened it, slid nimbly through the gap, and went into the woods and down to the stream, which, it being late summer, had dried up again.


What do you think?  Would you continue reading? 

Where is Laura going and why? Being a Jojo Moyes fan, I'm looking forward to immersing myself in her new novel and learning more about Laura's life.

  1. It has been too long since I read this author. This one sounds like a good place to resume reading!

  2. Hmmm, curious about taking the tray to the river. The last one I read by her was The Giver of Stars about the packhorse librarian. I do like her style so I'd read more.

  3. I've never read this author but this book sounds really good.
