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, What Happened to the Bennetts by Lisa Scottoline. The excerpt shared is from an eARC from the publisher.

First Chapter:  I glanced in my rearview mirror at the pickup truck, which was riding my bumper. I hated tailgaters, especially with my family in the car, but nothing could ruin my good mood. My daughter's field hockey team had just beat Radnor, and Allison had scored  a goal. She was texting in the back seat, one of  a generation that makes better use of opposable thumbs than any prior.


What do you think?  Would you continue reading? 

I agree with the narrator--I hate tailgaters too. They create dangerous and uncomfortable situations. I'm eager to read this book for two reasons: (1) I love the author and (2) my book club selected it as our November read.


This First Chapter~First Paragraph post was originally composed and/or compiled by Catherine for the Book Club Librarian blog.



  1. Great intro. I loved this book, and wouldn't mind reading it again. Here's mine: “LEFT ON TENTH”

  2. I liked this one and hope you do as well Catherine.

  3. It's been a long time since I read anything by this author. It sounds good. I agree about tailgaters too.
