First Chapter: MEMORY'S LIE by Jamie Mason

First Chapter, First Paragraph is hosted weekly by Bibliophile by the Sea. Share the first paragraph of your current read. Also visit Teaser Tuesdays meme.

Monday's Lie by Jamie Mason, published February 3, 2015 by Gallery Books. Genre: thriller.

First paragraph, first chapter:
It's funny what you remember about terrible things.
The scattered shards were far more beautiful than the crystal lamp they'd been an hour before. The clearest night sky had nothing at the foot of the stairs. The industrious back-and-forth of the man's shadow tricked the shimmer into life with his every pass.
If I'm ever a ghost, this will be one place they'll see me - the translucent drenched girl in pajama pants and soggy sweatshirt, hovering and shivering in the foyer. Part of me never left....
Book description:...a new thriller about a woman who digs into her unconventional past to confirm what she suspects: her husband isn't what she thought he was.

Would you continue reading, based on the opening paragraph?

    My Teaser this week

  4. I'm not sure this one is for me, but I'm sort of off thrillers at the moment. Hope you enjoy it!

  5. I like the intro quite a bit. It pulled me in right away. Then when I read the blurb, I was even more sold on it. Adding this one to my wish list.

  6. Interesting. I've been reading lighter stories recently, so maybe it's time for something darker. Sounds like this one would do!
    My Tuesday post features SIX STRINGS.

  11. I really like that intro - hope the rest is as good. enjoy

  12. Oh, that sounds GOOD!! Quite the hook! Thanks for sharing!

  13. That is a terrific beginning. It is grip[ing yet a little philosophical at the same time.

    I would definitely continue reading.

  14. I would need to read a leeetle bit more to decide whether to read the entire book or not, but definitely sounds interesting.
