First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros Pretty Poison



Every Tuesday, Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea posts the first paragraph or maybe two of her current read. Anyone can join in. Go to Diane's website for the image and share the first paragraph (or2) of the current book you are reading.




Pretty Poison by Joyce and Jim Lavene



It was too late for Peggy Lee to stop when she saw the car. There wasn't time to sound the air horn that scared away dogs and small children. It was like being in a slow motion movie.
The green Saturn Vue pulled out of the parking lot, and her bike glided right into the driver's side door. The over-sized front tire absorbed most of the shock. The impact jarred her but didn't knock her down. She put out her legs to brace herself and stared belligerently at the man behind the wheel. 

This is the paperback I have been carrying in my go-bag. It is a cozy mystery and easy to start and stop while reading in line at the bank, waiting at the doctor's office, etc.   What do you think, would you keep reading?

  6. I'm not a mystery-reader so probably not the best judge but the intro is intriguing without being overly dramatic.
