First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - The Winters; Lisa Gabriele


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. Here's my pick for this week:

The Winters; Lisa Gabriele
Penguin - 2020

ONE

"Last night Rebekah tried to murder me again.  It had been a while since I'd had that dream, not since we left Asherley, a place I called home for one winter and the bitterest part of spring, the dream only ever recurring when Max was gone and I'd find myself alone with Dani."

What do you think - read more or pass?
(I received print copy from publisher for review)

  1. I'd read at least a little more and then decide whether to continue. And I love the cover!

  2. That didn't really sound overly interesting, maybe it gets better.

  3. Oh I love how it seems to be about the Winters (obviously lol) and Rebecca (though spelt differently! (Without even reading the blurb) - Here's my Tuesday Post!

  4. I like the cover too, but I'm not sure I like a re-imagining of REBECCA. Ha! Hope you enjoy it!

  9. Not sure on this one. The opening just didn't do it for me, but I'd go a few pages in before tossing it.

  10. Oh, yes, I'm always up for a Rebecca pastiche! This will appeal to anyone who has read Rebecca, if only out of curiosity. :)

  11. The opening paragraph doesn't do a lot for me, but that cover definitely draws me in and makes me want to read more.

  13. This sounds like a riff on Rebecca—not sure if I would read it as the original is so powerful.
