First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - State of the Onion - Julie Hyzy
Every Tuesday Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros. It is a place to share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book you are reading or thinking about reading soon. Post about your first chapter first paragraph then link up at Diane's blog. It is a great way to get a glimpse into a book you have been thinking about too or maybe one you never would have considered otherwise.
State of the Onion
Berkley Prime Crime
I slid my employee pass into the card reader at the Northeast gate of the White House, and waited for verification--a long, shrill chirp that always made me wince. The pedestrian gate unlocked with a click and one of the guards, Freddie, emerged from the checkpoint to greet me. Like all of the staff here, he was fit, smart, and imposing. But he had a soft spot for those of us in the kitchen. We gave the guys cookies when we had time to make an extra batch.
" Hey, Ollie," he said, looking at a bulky parcel in my hand, "What's that?"
A pretty benign beginning, but setting up the chapter pretty well. Do you read cozy mysteries? I have come to like them a lot. They are a favorite genre. I have a lot of favorites...most of them.
Would you read on?
Hoping to finish this one today and then begin the another library find. I'll probably feature that one next week.
Stay Busy and Stay Happy
