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

"A call before six on a Saturday morning is never a good thing, although it's not unheard of on a holiday weekend. Too many times to count, Chief Ed Kapxnash of the Nantucket Police Department has seen the Fourth of July go sideways. The most common accident is a person blowing off a finger while lighting fireworks. Sometimes things are more serious. One year, they lost a swimmer to a riptide; another year a man drank ten shots of Patron Anejo and then did a backflip off the roof of the Allserve building and hit the water in such a way that his neck snapped. There are generally enough drunk and disorderliness to fill a sightseeing bus, as well as dozens of fistfights, a handful of which are so serious that the police have to get involved."
I have the audio version of this one and hope to start it today. I love books that take place on Nantucket.
What do you think read more or pass?
