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.
Killers of a Certain Age; Deanna Raybourn
Berkley - 9/5/2022
"My mothers always says it's common as pig's tracks to go around with a run in your stockings." Helen says, eyeing Billie's ripped hosiery critically.
Billie rolls her eyes. "Helen, it's murder, not cotillion."
"It's not murder," Helen corrects. "It's an assassination, and you can make an effort to look nice. Besides, they're supposed to believe we're stewardesses and no stewardess would be caught dead with torn pantyhose." Helen brandishes a familiar plastic egg. "I brought spares. Please go change while you still have time. I'll start the coffee."
What do you think --read more or pass? I've been so looking forward to this one. Not only is is supposed to be funny, these women are older as well - something we don't see that often in fiction.
This book releases next Tuesday.
