Tuesday Intros: Apples, Family, Treasures, and secrets!!




My Tuesday Intro pick is The Apple Orchard. I accepted this one for review because the story really captured my imagination. I think this one is going to be a great read!!


Prologue
Archangel, California
  The air smelled of apples, and the orchard hummed with the sound of bees hovering over the bushels of harvested fruit. The trees were in prime condition, waiting for the harvest workers to arrive. The branches had been pruned in readiness for the ladders, the last pesky groundhog had been trapped and carted away; the roads between the trees had been graded smooth so the fruit wouldn't be jostled in transport. The morning was cool with a mist hanging among the branches, The sun, ripe on the eastern horizon of the rolling hills, offered the promise of warmth later in the day. The pickers would be here soon.
                                    
                                     Based on the opening paragraph would you keep reading?

  6. Probably not - it's a bit too descriptive for me - I like a bit more left for the reader to fill in, if you know what I mean.

  7. The intro enveloped me--I'm smelling the apples, hearing the bees, and anticipating the arrival of the apple pickers. I would definitely keep reading on.
