Every Tuesday, Diane @ Bibliophile by the Sea
posts the opening paragraph (maybe two) of a book
she decided to read based on the opening paragraph (s).
Feel free to grab the banner and play along!
My Tuesday Intros pick is, Lost Dogs and Lonely Hearts. I came across this author after reading a Trisha Ashley book during the holidays. I love Brit Chick Lit and who can resist this cover??? Not me! I decided to include the second paragraph because the first one really didn't point the reader in any direction.
|Checked out from library|
When February started, Rachel Fielding had a middling-to-glamorous career doing PR for internet companies, a boyfriend who regularly bought her flowers and dressed better than she did, a cleaner, and a skin-age three years younger than her actual age, which was thirty-nine.
By the second week, however, she had, in one simple maneuver, managed to lose the love of her life, her Chiswick flat and her job. Rachel also discovered, that same morning, her first grey streak, which stood out a mile in her thick dark hair, and got a text from her sister Amelia, accusing her of forgetting her niece's fifth birthday "because not having children doesn't mean you can be so bloddy selfish."
Would you continue reading this one
based on the opening paragraph?
