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 Run Roe Run by Dolly Parton and James Patterson. 

First Chapter:  Annie Lee had been standing on the side of the road for an hour, thumbing a ride, when the rain started falling in earnest.


What do you think?  Would you continue reading? 

Although James Patterson has many other co-authors, his partnership with Dolly Parton intrigues me. I recently listened to an interview about their experience writing together and it sounded like they had a great time collaborating. And Dolly has a forthcoming record album related to the novel. 

I'm looking forward to reading--and listening--to the book and album and finding out what Rose is running from.

  1. This one sounds so good! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I'm intrigued, I saw them together on television. Hope you like it.

  3. I haven't read James Patterson's books in awhile. I loved his books and this sounds like a really good one.

  4. And I think a movie is planned that will star Reese Witherspoon (I think that's right). Who'd have ever thought it? Dolly has been very generous in the field of literacy. She's has given so many book to help out.

  5. I'd give this a try just because of Dolly! This sounds like it could be a good read.
