First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - The Bookshop of the Broken Hearted; Robert Hillman

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 they are reading or that they plan to read.  Here's an except from a book I've been looking forward to. What do you think?

G.P. Putnam - 2019


"She didn't stay long as far as marriages go, just a year and ten months. Her note was brief, too:

I'm leaving, Don't know what to say,

Love  Trudy

And Tom Hope was left injured in a way that seemed certain to kill him."


  1. I love that beginning! I'd certainly read on!

  2. I recently won this book in a contest. It certainly starts with a bang, doesn't it?

  3. Seems sad and mysterious at the same time!

  4. Love the title, without even reading the blurb - it sounds like my sort of read - and what a great beginning!

    Here is my Tuesday Teaser post. Hope you are having a good week x

  5. The intro definitely has me wanting to read on.

  6. What do I think?
    I think you need
    to high-tailit
    Upstairs to RITE
    with moi, aussi.
    God bless you.

  7. What an intriguing intro. Definitely want to know more about both but especially Tom.
