First Chapter, First Paragraph


I thought I'd join everybody today with my first paragraph of a book I am thinking of starting.

My paragraph?

People were gathering at Alban House for the family's annual summer solstice party--a happy occasion.  At least it was supposed to be.

My book?


It has mixed reviews.  Goodreads rates it a 3.70, but I'll continue on.

The cover says:
A perfect read for a dark and stormy night.

And since I'm doing the RIP X challenge in right now (or I'm supposed to be doing it), it sounds perfect for that!

How about you? 
What is your first paragraph?

Hi Debbie, I haven't been here for a while, but it looks like you are still doing well. I'm not sure about the first paragraph. It didn't grab me right away, but I could stare at that cover for a long time. Good luck with your R.I.P. challenge. I'm doing it too and the Diverse Universe as well.
