Welcome to First Chapter/Intros, hosted by Yvonne @ Socrates Book Reviews.
Each week readers post the first paragraph (or 2) of a book we are reading or plan to read. This week I selected a thriller that was released earlier this month.
The Stranger Behind You; Carol Goodman
William Morrow - July 2021
"I have noticed in my professional capacity that when someone makes a point of saying they're not lying, that usually means they are.
When the realtor brags that she hasn't lied about the view, though, I have to admit that her claim is demonstrably true: the view is spectacular. Standing at the elegant bay window it's as if I'm perched on a cliff overlooking the river. There's nothing between me and the Palisades but water and light. A person who was afraid of heights would be terrified, but heights aren't what I am afraid of."
What do you think - read more of pass? I've read several books by this author so hoping this new one will be a winner. I hope to start it later in the week.
