First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - What Happens in Paradise; Elin Hilderbrand


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


What Happens in Paradise; Elin Hilderbrand
Little Brown & Company - 2019
Part One
A Rooster and Two Hens

Irene

She wakes up facedown on a beach. Someone is calling her name.

Irene!

She lifts her head and feels her cheek and lips dusted with sand so white and fine, it might be powdered sugar.  Irene can sense impending clouds.  As the sun disappears, it gains a white-hot intensity; it's like a laser cutting through her.  The next instant she feels the highest sprinkling of rain.

Irene!

She sits up. The beach is unfamiliar, but it's tropical---there's turquoise water before her, lush vegetation behind, a rooster and two hens strutting around. She must be back in St. John.

How did she get here?

This is book # 2 of a 3 book series. The first book is Winter in Paradise, which I enjoyed.

  2. That was several paragraphs but it sounds interesting. I would have read on after the first sentence.

  3. I read the book and liked this one even better than the first book of the series and it ended on a cliff hanger so I can't wait for the next one.

  5. Interesting. I'm not usually one to read a book told in this style, but I like that you know the person's name right away. That helps.

    Thanks for sharing and for visiting my blog earlier. Hope you enjoy this book.
