Book Beginnings #49

For Book Beginnings, Rose City Reader invites us 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.

For Friday 56, Freda's Voice asks you to turn to Page 56 in your book or 56% on your e-reader and pick a sentence.

I am currently reading The Big Dreams Beach Hotel by Lilly Bartlett.
New York is where I fell head over heels for a bloke named Chuck. I know: Chuck. But don't judge him just because her sounds like he should be sipping ice cream floats at the drive-in or starring in the homecoming football game.
Interesting start and I'm curious to see how it goes. And yes, the name Chuck does bring to mind exactly what the narrator expects it to.
Lill is a total inspiration. Here's someone who's worked since her teens to do everything she possibly could to rise to the top of her profession.
I think I'll like Lill when I get to this part of the story. She sounds pretty tenacious.
