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 soon. I just picked this one up at the library.
The Lies I Tell; Julie Clark
Sourcebooks Landmark - 2022
Present - June
She stands across the room from me, in a small cluster of donors, talking and laughing. A jazz quartet plays in a corner, the bouncing, slipping notes dancing around us, a low undertone of class and money. Meg Williams. I take a sip of wine, savoring the expensive vintage, the weight of the crystal glass, and I watch her. There are few photographs of her in existence \--a grainy senior portrait from an old high school yearbook, and another image pulled from a 2009 YMCA staff directory--but I recognized her immediately. My first thought: She's back. Followed closely by my second: Finally.
What do you think, read more or pass? I l loved a previous book by the author - The Last Flight, so I've been looking forward to the newer release.
