First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - Christmas on Cape Cod; Nan Rossiter



Each Tuesday, Vicki, from I’d Rather Be At The Beach hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros where  readers post the opening paragraph (sometime two) of a book that they are reading or plan to read.

(My December choices always tend to include a few fluffy, feel good stories. I just finished The Christmas Star; Donna VanLiere (no review yet, but very enjoyable) and now hope to start Christmas on Cape Cod.  Do you enjoy a few lighter holiday stories in December as well ?)



Christmas on Cape Cod; Nan Rossiter
Zebra (eBook $2.99 on Amazon)

Chapter 1

"Dad, wake up!" There was a short pause and then the same soft voice whispered again with more urgency. "Dad...Dad, wake up! We have to go find a tree! You said we had to get up early."  This time the plea was accompanied by gentle nudging and prodding. Asa Coleman opened one eye and squinted at the little face, which was inches from his nose.  The face smiled. "Time to get up!" It announced cheerfully.

Would you read more or pass?

  3. I have never read a Christmas-related book, but this year feel in the mood so I'll see what you think of the two you've read when you post the reviews.

  4. I would continue on. It sounds like a nice story. This week I am featuring The Fated Sky by Mary Robinette Kowal. Happy reading!

  5. One of my reading groups used to plan a Christmas read for December. Then we tried to find Hanukkah reads. Then we just gave up and had a party. My favorite Christmas novel of all time is Mr Ives' Christmas by Oscar Hijuelos.

  7. This sounds just the book to read at Christmas. I don't often read Christmassy books - but I'll try this year.

  9. I love Christmas stories and I can't wait to start reading some this season. I have to finish one more December review book and then I'm going to binge read Christmas. Check out the book Susan is featuring at Girl Who Reads

  10. Sounds like it’ll be a feel good read. I’m not one for reading Christmas stories during the season but I enjoy others reviews of them.
