First Line Friday (week 57): All of You

May 12, 2017 First Line Fridays, Sarah Monzon 34

Happy Friday!

My apologies for not having a post last week  – all my fangirling got the better of me lol.

Since it’s Friday, it’s time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line!

The book I’m featuring today is All of You by Sarah Monzon!

And the first line is …

“Lieutenant Michael ‘Finch’ Carrington pulled up the zipper of his green flight suit and stared at the mass on the opposite rack.”

umm… hello hero in uniform! Yes please! 😉

Let me know your first line in the comments & then head over to see what First Lines these friends are sharing today:

    I’m reading this right now! Soooo good! I have the first line from Tamara Leigh’s ‘The Vexing’ on my blog today, but I’m going to leave you with the first line from ‘Still Falling’ by Crystal Walton, releasing on 17th May:

    “On his way to their squad car, NYPD Officer Josh D’Angelo fanned away a sense of dread rising with the steam coming through the subway grates.”

    Someday, I’m going to read All of You! On my blog today I’m sharing a line from Pepper Basham’s book The Thorn Healer. I wanted to share something different in the comment, so I’m choosing a book that my son is currently reading. “As soon as she heard the first pop, pop, pop of the distant muskets, the young mother extinguished the morning fire and closed and barred the cabins shutter.” Abandoned on the Wild Frontier (The Trailblazer books) by: Dave & Neta Jackson Bethany House, 1995

    “Agent Elliot Matthews stared down a firing squad.” From “The Illusionist’s Apprentice” by Kristy Cambron. I am so enjoying this book. It is very different from her other books, and as always very well written.

    • Carrie

    • Carrie

      I’ve been meaning to read that book at some point!

    Just added this book to TBR pile!

    On my blog today is the first line from Irene Hannon’s Sea Rose Lane so I am going to leave the first line from Between the Reins by Liz Isaacson that is releasing on May 16th. “The barn door banged open as Gil, one of the male counselors, burst through it, “Owen, there’s a fight we need your help with.”

    • Carrie

      oh that sounds good! (I love Sea Rose Lane, by the way!)

    Of all the things that Lady Madeline Parker disliked about her life, the one that constantly stuck out in her brain was her hatred of embroidery.
    From Tender Wings of Desire ~ A Colonel Sanders Novella
    Here is the dedication.
    For mothers everywhere,
    I dedicate this to you-a brief escape from motherhood into the arms of your fantasy Colonel. Whoever he may be.

    Sort of a guy in uniform…LOL!
