Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros where I share the first paragraph sometimes two from a book I am reading or thinking about reading soon. (On chapter 4 - so far very good)
The Lake House; Kate Morton
Atria - 2015

Clouds covered the moon, a stroke of luck she didn't deserve, and she made her way through the thick, black night as quickly as she could. She's come earlier to dig the hole, but only now, under veil of darkness, would she finish the job. Rain stippled the surface of the trout stream, drummed relentlessly on the earth beside it. Something bolted through the broken nearby, but she didn't flinch, didn't stop. She'd been in and out of the woods all her life and knew the way by heart."
What do you think -- keep reading or pass?
