Each Tuesday, Vicki from I’d Rather Be At The Beach, hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros. This is a fun way to share your current read or reads with others and all you need to do is post the first paragraph or two of what you’re reading or going to read. My pick is The Huntress by Kate Quinn which releases on February 26 and can be pre-ordered on Amazon now.
She was not used to being hunted.
The lake stretched slate blue, glittering. The woman gazed over it, hands lying loose in her lap. A folded newspaper sat beside her on the bench. The headlines all trumpeted arrests, deaths, forthcoming trials. The trials held in Nuremberg , it seemed. She had never been to Nuremberg, but she knew the men who would he tried there. Some she knew by name only, others had touched champagne flutes to hers in friendship. They were all doomed. Crimes against peace. Crimes against humanity. War crimes.
Grabbed me from this first paragraph. How about you – would you keep reading?
