    My first line is from a book I’m listening to for the second time!
    “You, sir, are a rogue!” Emily Payne scowled into the black marble gaze fixed on hers, determined to win the deadlock of stares. Horrid Beast.
    Brentwood’s Ward by Michelle Griep.

    I hope you feel like you’ve caught up on rest and emails, Carrie! Have a quiet, relaxing weekend!

    I thought you must have somehow forgotten to type the rest of the title for a moment! Lol! Love that first line, though.

    I’ve got the first line from “Chasing Secrets” by Lynette Eason on the blog today, but I’ve just finished reading “A Rose So Fair” by Myra Johnson, so I’m going to share the first line from that here:

    “Now just you hold it right there, mister.” Rose Linwood sighted her unwelcome visitor down the length of Grandpa’s trusty Winchester.

    She’s a spunky one!

      hahahaha!!

      OOOO two books I really need to read soon!

    Happy Friday! My first line is from An Alaskan Christmas by Belle Calhoune: “Finn O’Rourke paced back and forth in terminal 27A of the Anchorage airport.”

  4. Rebecca

    Interesting first line! 🙂

    I’m featuring “Healing Love” by Jennifer Slattery on my blog today, but I’m currently reading “A Name Unknown” by Roseanna M. White.

    Rosemary Gresham may have been a thief, but she was a thief who preferred to work in broad daylight.

    Happy Friday, Carrie! Since I’ll be finishing Pepper Basham’s The Thorn Healer before lunch, I’m sharing the first line from my current Chapter 22: “I hate leaving you like this.” Catherine stilled her movements from packing her trunk, her coral walking suit an elegant fit on her delicate frame. “Not when David and Alexander could help tend the sickness.”

    So I must confess that when I first saw the initials LU, I immediately thought Liberty University. 🙂

  7. Paula S.

    Debra will recognize this one!
    Heather Munro gazed down Victoria Street so long, she became another gray-suited statue along the Royal Mile.
    From The Case of the Clobbered Cad by Debra E. Marvin!

    2/3 reds done and am enjoying this immensely!

    Happy Friday! I am reading Canteen Dreams by Cara Putnam.
    December 6, 1941
    She hated attending dances alone.

    I just started reading Street Smarts From Proverbs by Mitch Kruse “Conflict is all around us and often is found raging inside us.”

    I love the first line! It pulls me in right away 🙂

    My first line is:
    “23 July 1955
    There was going to be a funeral.” ~ Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz
    Happy Reading!

      that’s a first line that for sure makes me want to keep reading!!

    I’m almost finished reading Song of Silence by Cynthia Ruchti –

    Lucy removed her glasses and watched Elle’s thin, thirteen-year-old fingers splay against the girl’s too-flat stomach.

    This has been a wonderful, moving read, and I was so glad to have met the author last weekend.

  12. Kay Garrett

    Sadly to say, it’s been a week that left very little time for reading. Therefor I am still on the same book as last week.

    Life is forever chanced without her; without the sense of her somewhere near.
    Last Christmas in Paris
    by Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb

    LOVE the book now just find the time to read a few pages. 🙂

  13. Pam K.

    “The woman who had been Burning Sky had kept off the warrior path that came down from the north through mountains, along the courses of rivers and creeks.” Burning Sky by Lori Benton.

  14. Sarah

    Such an interesting thought to ponder. Are our experiences really so unique anymore? With 7 billion people on the planet, it seems unlikely. Now my brain is starting to go all philosophical, haha. Happy Reading!

  15. Nicole Santana

    Love that first line. I’m going to have to check this book out!

    My first line comes from Hold the Light by April McGowan.

    “Unremarkable. Amber glanced out the steaming windowpane at the cityscape below her.”

  16. Jocelyn

    Just catching up on my computer today. My first line this week is from Fatal Trust by Todd Johnson.

    “In the still night air, Ian stood with his back to the Mississippi River on the Guthrie Theater’s outdoor patio, his fingertips tingling and the strong beat of his heart filling his chest.”

    Let me tell you, there are not many books that grab me from the very beginning, but I could not put Fatal Trust down. It is fabulously written and the story gripping. Great read!

      oh yay! That’s good to know! I’m getting ready to read that one!
