First Chapter, First Paragraph Tuesday Intros

Every Tuesday, Diane from Bibliophile by the Sea, posts the opening paragraph (maybe two) of a book that she has chose to read based on the opening paragraph (s). I thought I would play along this week!

 This week's opening paragraph (s) is from a book that was released on July 12, by Random House. 
I will be hosting this book for a TLC Book Tour August 11th!

Chapter 1

Columbia County, Arkansas, 1956

  "John Moses couldn't have chosen a worse day, or a worse way to die, if he'd planned it for a lifetime. Which was possible. He was contrary as a mule. It was the weekend of the Moses family reunion, and everything was perfect--or at least perfectly normal--until John went and ruined it."

What do you think about that INTRO?

    Thanks for playing along Staci.

  2. I'm hooked!! And the title of the book draws me in too! :):):):):):):):):):):):)

  3. Great hook -- very intriguing and definitely leaves me wanting to know more!

  4. Hmm...makes me wonder what John did!

  5. I would keep reading! Looking forward to your thoughts.

  6. I'm intrigued! I'd read that one.

  7. The book is off to a great start. I'd want to keep going to see what's going to happen.

  8. I'm going to be reading this one too! Sounds like it may be a good one. I'll be looking forward to your thoughts on it.

  9. Contrary as a mule, eh. Always makes for an interesting character.
