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.
Troubles in Paradise; Elin Hilderbrand
Little Brown - 2020
(Book #3/3 in the Paradise series)
"The gossip recently has been as juicy as a papaya, one that gives slightly under our fingertips and is as fragrant on the inhale, the inside brilliant coral color, bursting with seeds like so many ebony beads. If you don't fancy papaya, think of a mango as we crosshatch the ripe flesh of the cheeks with a sharp knife or a freshly picked pineapple from the fertile fields of ST. Croix, deep gold, its chucks sweeter than candy. Like these island fruits, the talk around here is irresistible."
I enjoyed this series, a very good escape read so I was looking forward to the finale. I must say I wasn't expecting so much "fruit" for the intro...LOL
Would you read more or pass?
