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, Death at a Country Mansion by Louise R. Innis. The excerpt shared is from a paperback version borrowed from the library.

First Chapter:  The ice in her glass tinkled provocatively as the scotch hit it. Another marriage in tatters. Her fourth, in fact. Serena shook her head and took a big gulp, feeling the whiskey encase her in a golden glow as it went down. Bastard. How could Collin do this to her? With an air hostess, of all people. What the hell was he thinking?


What do you think?  Would you continue reading? 

Death at a Country Mansion is the first book in the Daisy Thorne Mystery Series, and its opening sounds like the start of a juicy story and series.
