First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - Tomorrow There Will Be Sun; Dana Reinhardt


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.

Pamela Dorman Books - 2019

SATURDAY

"A perfectly prepared margarita (rocks, salt, subtle with the triple sec, less so with the tequila) placed in your hand when you didn't even ask, with an itty-bitty half lime floating up top. something local grown just down the street where the patchy pavement gives way to dirt, which then surrenders to jungle, can almost take the edge off a day of truly shitty airport mishaps.  Let's not recount them. Airport mishaps are dull.  They're like dreams.  We convince ourselves that ours are potboilers, cliffhangers, whodunits.  They're not.  And yet, despite the entirely predictable debacle that was our direct flight from LAX to PVR, in business class no less because those were the only seats left for which we could use miles and so drained our entire account, we still managed to arrive at Villa Azul Paraiso before the Solomons."

What do you think - read more or pass?

  3. Ooh, you had me at the margarita! LOL. Airport drinking, too, along with the mishaps.

    Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  6. I would reluctantly give this one another half dozen pages to convince me to keep reading.

  7. In spite of margarita (which makes my lips tingle for the salty rim), I'm not at all sure of the rest of the paragraph. It would take more to keep my interest.

  9. It's been over 30 years since my husband and I spent a week in Puerto Vallerta, but I would give anything to be there right now, margarita in hand, sitting poolside while reading a great book. Yes, I'd read this!
