First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - am coming to this meme after two weeks.

Just received a book win from Patricia Sands. The Promise of Provence is delightful but unfortunately the opening paragraph does not indicate what is to come!

"Stepping out the front door into a wash of cool autumn air, Katherine closed her eyes and inhaled its crispness.

It doesn't get much better than this, she thought, walking briskly through the leafy neighbourhood.

Her usual 7.00 am route to work caught the city in its final stretch of waking up. She loved the sense of lingering quiet while a blanket of calm lay gently in the air. Even the traffic seemed to move sleepily, preceding the honking, gesturing and gridlock that would evolve as rush hour developed.   "
