First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - 142 Ostriches; April Davila


Welcome to
 First Chapter/Intros, now hosted by  Socrates Book Reviews
Thanks to Yvonne for taking over FCFPTI.


142 Ostriches; April Davila
Kensington Books - 2020

One

Four days before the ostriches stopped laying eggs, Grandma Helen died in an accident that really wasn't an accident.  It was a Sunday, when almost everyone was in church, when the only other trucks on Route 66 were bigger than hers, their immense grilles roaring toward her, then escaping one after another, until a tomato trailer out of Sacramento proved too enticing.

Isn't the cover beautiful?  I'm hoping this one is a winner as the reviews have been pretty good.

Would you read more or pass?

  1. What a gorgeous cover! Great opening lines, too. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

    I wrote on my Potpourri blog today about new books...and added a little rant about how Goodreads adds their own designations to my book status: currently reading or read when I would have labeled them "want to read."
