First Line Friday (week 63): Distorted

June 23, 2017 Christy Barritt, First Line Fridays 38

Welcome to the first official FLF of the summer 🙂

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 Distorted by Christy Barritt

And the first line is …

“Tennyson Walker’s mission was clear: find Dante Torres, take him down by whatever means necessary, capture the insurgents, and get out.”

Such a great book! Watch for my review later today!

    Sounds like he has his work cut out for him!

    I have the first line from Kara Isaac’s AMAZING new release “Then There Was You” on my blog, but the first line I’m sharing here is from Kara Swanson’s recent release, “The Girl Who Could See”. (It must be a Kara kind of day!)

    “On television crime shows, they never tell you how cold it is.”

    “There was no doubt in William Sterling’s mind.” From The Headmistress of Rosemere by Sarah E. Ladd.

  3. CJ Myerly

    Oh, man! Definitely sets the tone for a suspense.

    I’m sharing from a book I just finished a couple days ago, Mistakenly Married by Victorine Lieske: “Penny wrung her hands and walked to the back of the room.”

    Suzie shivered at Carson Snotte’s words, not the March air with its hint of lingering winter. Barely Above Water by Gail Pallotta

  5. Becky Smith

    Oooohhh! I want to read Distorted!

    My first line is from Sweetbriar Cottage by Denise Hunter: “There was nothing like a letter from the IRS to stop a man in his tracks.”

  6. Tina Rice

    Good morning! Not ready anything by Christy Barritt.

    My first line is from the book My Daughter’s Legacy by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould…. “Sometimes a lie was the better choice–or at least that’s what I’d always told myself.”
    Blessings, Tina

      Hi Tina! You should totally read Christy’s books sometime – they’re excellent 🙂

    “How to recount the strange events that led to my present life is something of a quandary”

  8. Amanda Tero

    Ah… suspense from the first line. Like it!

    On my blog is the first line from “Promise Me This” by Cathy Gohlke, but here I’ll share the first line of the book I got in the mail yesterday: “Heart on the Line” by Karen Witemeyer! This will be my first to read of hers…
    “The cheerful tinkle of a bell alerted Grace Mallory to the arrival of a guest.”

  9. Kristy Shelton

    From the book, Blinders, set in 1912.

    “Eugene awoke with a start, instinctively covering his head in preparation for the next blow.”

  10. Trisha

    I’ll share a different line here than the one on my blog, just to keep things interesting! Last night I started reading Amber Lynn Perry’s new book “So Pure a Heart”.
    “Alone, Hannah Young stared at the dirt-covered mound as the chilled air breached the warmth of her heavy cloak.”

  11. Marylin Furumasu

    Carrie,
    I LOVE THIS BOOK!
    Christy really has a way of keeping you on the edge of your seat.
    My first line is from Conspiracy of Silence by Ronie Kendig.
    “Separate yourself from this assembly, so I can put an end to them at once.”
    Good book, as all of Ronie’s are. Full of action!

    “Miss Lucy Beresford, the late-vicar’s daughter, had been instructed by her loving parents to always tell the truth.”
    The Fall of Lord Drayson by Rachael Anderson

    So, I finally got to read a book that was beckoning from my TBR list. I LOVED it!

    First line: The little hairs on the back of Allegra Spencer’s neck stood at attention.
    From: Count Me In by Mikal Dawn

    Carrie, my Kindle battery died right after the first kiss! The charger was in the bedroom where hubby was sleeping, I had to wait hours before I could finish it. You can’t even imagine my agony 😀

    • Winnie Thomas

      Andrea, that kiss must have killed your battery! Pretty potent kiss. Maybe you should have had your fan going. I loved Count Me In.

      • Carrie

        And there’s never a good time for a Kindle battery to die but ESPECIALLY not after one of those kisses haha!
