Today I’m joining First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea as I just started a new book so here it goes:
“The flames leaped high into the starry sky. Revelers clapped and reeled about each other in the golden flickering light, there and then gone, swallowed by the darkness and the whirling mass of their fellow merrymakers. As the orchestra behind me passed between songs, I could just make out the fevered pitches of a fiddle and the low thump of a drum playing a Scottish jig. It floated on the crisp night air through the open French doors. What the players lacked in skill, they certainly made up for in exuberance.”
A Grave Matter by Anna Lee Huber.
I mentioned yesterday that I really felt like reading a mystery from a series and preferably one that I was already familiar with so I picked up this book in the Lady Darby mystery series. This is the third book in the series and I am very excited to see what Kiera is up to in this entry.
What about you, what new book have you picked up? Have you read this series and would this intro make you curious?
