First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - River Road; Carol Goodman



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. I'm on chapter 8 of this one and enjoying it.

River Road; Carol Goodman
Touchstone - 2016

Chapter ONE

"She came out of nowhere.

I was driving back from the faculty Christmas party. I'd had a couple glasses of wine but I wasn't drunk.  Distracted, sure, what with Cressida dropping that bombshell and the scene with Ross, but not drunk."

What do you think -- keep reading or pass? 
(Feel free to join in this week by posting your intro below?
