I'm reading a book set in France for FranceBookTours. I'll be reviewing I Promise You This by Patricia Sands on May 20, and there will be a book giveaway, so I hope you'll come back for that.
Here's the intro:
Rain pelted down.I had to keep the intro going until we got to a definitely French part -- the Left Bank.
The limo crawled along in a clog of traffic. For the most part, the rhythmic slap of the windshield wipers was all that broke the silence.
Philippe knew that Kat was struggling to keep her composure. He kept the conversation light and brief as they looked out from the backseat. "Now you see why I never take a taxi into Paris from the airport. At least with a hired car and driver, I don't have to watch the meter skyrocket if we get caught like this."
Kat nodded expressionless, staring straight ahead. She thought it fitting that the weather was as gloomy and dark as the feelings she was fighting.
When the familiar landmarks of the Left Bank came into view, her mood began to lift. She leaned her head back against the seat. Her hand nestled in Philippe's.
I look forward to seeing what everyone else is reading.
Yes, I do like that opening and I want to know why her mood was so dark...
This has piqued my interest. I would read on. Enjoy!
Nice intro -I've read it for the tour as well and am very familiar with the wintry Canadian segments ... EnJoy!
I'd definitely keep reading, and I love that cover. Would be a wonderful painting for my wall.
Here's my TT
Salut, Paulita! I was delighted to see you are taking part in the book tour! Will you be in France this summer?
Lovely opening, and I can sense the dark emotions, wondering what is going on between them. Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.
I like the sounds of this one. I'm going to add it to my wishlist.
I like the intro and the cover is so pretty.
Sounds like it has pleasant possibilities. Enjoy
Oh dear I am still on French toast, I told you I was not really a reader but like other's I love the cover x
Oh, I LOVE this cover! And I have always wanted to visit Paris, but have never had the chance (or the money, lol). I studied French for 4 years in high school, and became quite obsessed with France at the time.
I love the plot, too! Second chances are always nice to read about. I'm curious as to what Katherine will decide to do, given the very contradictory alternatives she has to choose from.
I'm adding this one to my Goodreads shelves. Thanks for featuring it!!
Also, thanks for stopping by and commenting on my own Tuesday Intros post!! :)
P.S. When I went to Goodreads, I discovered they're having a giveaway for this book, so I entered it!! Keeping my fingers crossed.....lol. :)
