"Nineteen minutes before her brain and body parted ways, Tara Beckley's concern was the cold.

First night of October, but as the sun set and the wind picked up, it felt like midwinter, and Tara could see her breath fogging the air.  That would have been crisp New England charm on another night, but not this one, when she wore only a thin sweater over a summer-weight dress.  Granted, she hadn't expected to be standing in the cold, but she had a commitment to deliver one Professor Amandi Oltamu from dinner to his keynote presentation, and the professor was pacing the making lot of the restaurant they'd just left, already staringinito the darkness and playing with his phone."

What do you think - pass or read more? I haven't started this one yet but, I did like the intro.

  2. I like the opening line a lot, so I would probably press on for a few more pages to see whether or not I'd want to read the whole thing. That's a great hook.

  6. Clearly a crisis of some kind is right around the corner, so to speak. Not sure if it is what I want right now, but maybe?
