First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - Her Every Fear; Peter Swanson


Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros sharing the first paragraph, maybe two, of a book that I'm reading or plan to read soon.


Her Every Fear; Peter Swanson
William Morrow / Harper Collins - 2017

Chapter 1

"THE FASTEST ROUTE FROM LOGAN Airport to downtown Boston is a mile-long tunnel called the Sumner.  Dark, damp, and low ceilinged, the Sumner feels as though it were built a hundred years ago, which it very nearly was.  And on Friday, April 24, a warm spring evening, a Boston University freshman ran out of gas halfway though the tunnel, reducing rush-hour traffic to just one slow-moving lane, instead of the usual two.  Kate Priddy, who had never been to Boston and had no idea how she would wind up in a tunnel under Boston Harbor, sat in the back of a stopped taxicab and began to panic."

Base on this intro, would you read more or take a pass?

Feel free to join in by posting your link to your Tuesday Intro below.

  1. I think I would also panic if stuck in that tunnel! I do want to know what happens.

  2. Although its been 15 od 20 years ago, I do remember that tunnel. I was caught in cloggef traffic and it felt very claustrophobic. I'd keep reading. I'm curious where this is going.

  4. I've been to Boston once, at least 25 years ago, and I vividly remember that tunnel. If I were stuck in it, I'd panic too! I'd keep reading to find out what happens next to Kate.
    Thank you for hosting.

  5. I did keep reading this. If I'm honest, it was with mixed results...partly I think my hopes were too high and I was in the minority. Hope you enjoy!

  6. Obviously the tunnel is bad (never seen, never heard about it!) and yes I'd like to know what happens.

  7. How funny that you gave this particular teaser! We've just returned from Boston and those tunnels - wow. We were listening to my phone tell us where to go and my husband was quite frustrated at the 'bear left and exit right'. I've already read this book - liked it - totally forgot that it was set in Boston. LOL

  11. Based on how that tunnel is described, I would probably panicking, too. Getting stuck is a bad thing. Passing by tunnels either make me sad or a little bit terrified. I would like to continue reading this book. :)

  13. This book caught my eye, and I already have it on my wishlist, because I read and enjoyed the first book that this author wrote a few years ago. I'd keep going.

  14. Normally I'd say I'd need a bit more to make a decision but being that this is by Peter Swanson, I'd definitely would. Really enjoyed The Kind Worth Killing so I'd like to read more!

  15. I think I would keep reading. Where is she going? Will she get there on time? Does time matter for her? There are a lot of unanswered questions
