Why Haven't I Read You? (41)

Every Wednesday I’ll choose a book off one of my (many, many) shelves that I haven’t read for some reason or another, and include the first few lines from the first page.
Feel free to join in, and comment about the books I feature if you have read them!

What happens in Texas stays in Texas. Except when demons are involved.
I was sitting on the sagging porch of the old farmhouse, sipping an ice-cold ginger ale, when a red pickup truck appeared around the last bend of the long, curving driveway. I stood, shielding my eyes against the late-afternoon sun—noticing, as had become my habit, the gold glimmer of my wedding ring standing out in stark relief against the obsidian, mercury-streaked tattoos that covered my entire left hand.

  1. Drip. Drip. Drip. I ran blindly through the foilage and dashed for the river, my dress like a tail behind me. My heart rate was unnatural, impossible, as I dodged the flames and angry faces encircling me. The hands below my feet taunted - evil words that carved evil images in my mind. Where nightingales had been, vultures with red, beady eyes now vacated their place among the trees.
    Deceiving Destiny by Nadege Richards
