First Chapter/First Paragraph Tuesday Intros: May 19, 2020

Today, I’m participating in the First Chapter/First Paragraph Tuesday Intros blog meme, hosted by Socrates’ Book Reviews.

“It’s Tuesday!  It’s time to share your excerpts and teasers from books we are currently reading, have read or are planning to read.  So, feel free to join us by sharing the first paragraph or (a few) of a book you are reading or thinking about reading soon.  This meme is guaranteed to increase your TBR :)”

When We Believed in Mermaids Book Cover

My current read is When We Believed in Mermaids: A Novel by Barbara O’Neal. I’m only a few chapters in, but the intro really did hook me:

“My sister has been dead for nearly 15 years when I see her on the TV news.”

When We Believed in Mermaids is currently available on Kindle Unlimited, which is how I sort of picked it up on a whim.

    One of my reviewers read this and enjoyed it. It sounds like a good read.

  • I have been wanting to read more from this author, and I love the cover. Great excerpt! Here’s mine: “THE LAST HOUSE GUEST”

    That’s a great hook. I’ll have to add this to my wishlist.
