Welcome to First Chapter/Intros, now hosted by Yvonne @ Socrates Book Reviews. Each week readers post the first paragraph (or 2) of a book they are reading or that they plan to read soon.

Algonquin - 2020
"Lately, Shelley hears things in the middle night, hinges creaking and papers rustling, but it could be anything-- the dog, her son, a mouse, the wind --and she forces her mind to stop right there so she doesn't imagine possibilities that would terrify her, like a killer or a ghost. It doesn't help that old man rides by so often now, his green Toyota slowing in front of the house and then circling the block."
What do you think, read more or pass?
