First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - What Nora Knew; Linda Yellin


Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where I share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book I am reading or thinking about reading soon. This one sounds light and fun.

What Nora Knew; Linda Yellin
Gallery Books - 2014
Prologue

Ten minutes after saying "I do" at The Garden City Hotel in Long Island, I was already having my doubts.  But how do you say "I don't" to a man who's considered quite the catch.  Everyone was constantly telling me--even strangers--that Evan Naboshek, of the firm Naboshek, Halla, and Weiss, was a fabulous hell of a prize.

  1. Regrets right after saying, I do. Not good. This sounds like it will be a good one, Diane. I hope you like it! I would keep reading. :-)

    1. Why did she let it go on so long? I once asked myself the same question LOL

  2. I agree with Literary Feline. Too bad she didn't act on her doubts before saying I do.

  3. Now what does she do? I'd keep reading to find out.

  4. This does sound very good - I'd have to keep reading to see why she said yes and what her doubts stem from.

    1. I know, and am anxious to see what is causing her to rethink the "I do".

  5. Not a good start to a marriage - but an intriguing opening for a book.

  11. I liked the intro, especially the theme about people being "good on paper", but I would need to know more about the premise of the book.

  14. This is a great idea! The book I chose doesn't start off with anything interesting. It was kind of a dud but I used it anyway because it's the latest book I was reading.

  17. Diane - I accidentally sent a second link through on Mr. Linky when I was looking for any new posts that had been added. The second on (#22) is wrong--if you want to delete it. If not, it's last week's 1st Chapter, so it's on topic--just a repeat. Sorry!

  18. Oh, oh! The marriage is not off to a good start! I'd read more....

  19. Love the opening! It definitely doesn't bode well for the marriage!
