On Tuesdays First Chapter, First Paragraph/Intros is hosted by Vickie/ I’d Rather Be at the Beach. Readers are asked to share the first paragraph of a book they are reading or plans to read soon. This week's selection hooked me right away (I'm about 1/3 into it and enjoying it). Tell me how you like the intro.
The Death of Mrs Westaway; Ruth Ware

"The magpies are back. It's strange to think how much I used to hate them, when I first came to the house. I remember coming up the drive in the taxi from the station, seeing them lined up along the garden wall like that, preening their feathers.
Today there was one perched on the frost-rimed branch of yew right outside my window, and I remembered what my mother used to say when I was little and whispered Hello, Mr. Magpie under my breath, to turn away the bad luck."
