Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros where I share the first paragraph sometimes two from a book I am reading or thinking about reading soon.
A Newport Christmas Wedding; Shelley Noble
" MERI CALDER-HOLLIS SOON to be Meri Calder-Hollis Corrigan, stood on an antique wooden washtub in the middle of her grandmother's living room. The tub had seen many incarnations. First as the receptacle for Saturday wash days, then as a bed for several litters of puppies, kittens, and once a wounded fox.
For several summers it held geraniums by the front door, ice for the church picnic, and even borrowed for a photo shoot for a brochure of one of the mansions Meri was restoring at the time. Today it was covered with a white sheet and served as a platform for the hemming of her wedding dress."
What do you think -- keep reading or pass?
