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, Secrets and Lies by Selena Montgomery. The excerpt shared is from a paperback version borrowed from the library.

First Chapter:  Nighttime suited Sebastian Caine. In the shadows, he could prowl the quiet streets, invisible to the unsuspecting eye. Dakkar or Paris, New York or New Delhi, the nighttime yielded its secrets to him with a delicate sigh.


What do you think?  Would you continue reading? 

This is not my usual genre, but after reading Stacey Abrams's novel, While Justice Slept, I am curious about the books she wrote a while back under the pen name Selena Montgomery.

  1. I am intrigued by the excerpt and the idea of the book. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Dark rather eerie cover and somewhat ominous intro. I did know that Stacey Abrahams had written other books.

    Here is my pick:

  3. I didn't know Stacey Abrams wrote under other names. I really want to read her books. This one sounds good too.

  4. Vivid imagination and mystery draw readers in and make us eager to discover the mysteries ahead. I can't wait to read more. But now my recent project kfc swot analysis is written for me when I finish my work and move on.

  5. Starting off a book is like setting the stage for a grand play. The first chapter, the opening paragraph – they're the sneak peek into a whole new world. It's where the story unfolds, drawing you in like a magnet.
