Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author's name.
My Book Beginnings is from THE RETURNED by Jason Mott.
First sentence: Harold opened the door that day to find a dark-skinned man in a well-cut suit smiling at him.
The sentence wasn't surprising because I sort of knew what the book was about, but the book is very different. THE RETURNED is a bit scary.
