she decided to read based on the opening paragraph (s).
Feel free to grab the banner and play along!
My selection this week is from a cozy that I picked up at the library last week aptly titled, Books Can Be Deceiving. I haven't been to my library in months, so I was browsing their awesome cozy selection and came up with this one. I plan on reading it over the holiday break.
"Oh, I just love that Maxim de Winter," Violet La Ru said, her knitting needles clicking together as if to emphasize her words. "He gives me the shivers."
"Him?" Nancy Peyton asked. "He's not nearly as scary as Mrs. Danvers."
Lindsey Norris glanced up from her knitting at the two ladies sitting across the circle from her. It was crafternoon Thursday, where member of the crafternoon club gathered at the Briar Creek Library to do a craft- currently, they were knitting- and discuss the assigned book of the week.
Would you continue reading this one based on the opening paragraph?
