I recently started a new book and thought I’d join in on this week’s First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea.
“Limbs snap under his feet as he wrestles his way deeper into the underbrush. Twilight closes in around him, as water from the drizzling rain runs off his leather jacket. Lights are on in the kitchen and in a few rooms toward the back of the house. He sees her through the window, standing at the sink in the warm light, her hands busy under the running water.”
From The Lost Woman By Sara Blaedel.
What do you think? If you didn’t know that the author writes crime fiction do you think this teaser would make you nervous? Sounds creepy right?
I’ve read a couple of books by Sara Blaedel, this is actually the sixth in her Louise Rick series, but I’ve read them out of order. Normally that’s not something I like to do but in this series I don’t seem to have a problem with that. Maybe I’m relaxing my guidelines for reading mysteries. Haha.
Tell me about a new book you’ve started!
