    Ooh! Good line.

    I’ve got the first line from “Will Not See” by Chautona Havig over on my blog today. Since it’s the second book in the ‘Sight Unseen’ series, I thought I would share the first line (or two) from the first book in the series, “None So Blind”, here:

    “Her arm stretched out from beneath the covers. Later, she would admit that in that moment her world changed irrevocably.”

    Have a great weekend!

    “999! 999-“. The voice clicked off.” “Crisis Shot” by Janice Cantore. Loving it so far. (and by the way, 999 is code for “officer needs help”)

    Huge hands ripped at Cole Sanders’ shirt and yanked him away from Audrey Vaughn’s embrace. Tackling the Fields by Janet Ferguson

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Becky Smith

    Oooohhh! Going to check out that book!

    Happy Friday! My first line is from Destitutio by Brett Armstrong, which I am excited to start reading:
    “The grisly, grey swirls churned up before Marcus, a thin mask to the merciless heat.”

    She hated this time of night.
    Plain Retribution by Dana R. Lynn

    It’s funny that I am reading the same book as you mentioned in this weeks First Line Friday! 🙂

  6. Rebecca

    Why does she hate this time of night? Sounds intriguing!

    I’m featuring “A Name Unknown” by Roseanna M. White on the blog today, but the closest book I have to me right now is “The Writing Desk” by Rachel Hauck.

    “This should by night of triumph. To be queen of her world. An acclaimed, best-selling, award-winning author with the literati bowing at her feet.”

    Happy Weekend!

    Happy Friday, Carrie! Have you recovered from CFRR yet? 😉 Here’s what I’ve got…first line from Slave, by Laura Frances… “There’s a dripping sound echoing in this darkness.”
    I’m almost done with this book…and dystopian fans, fans of action, intense storytelling, and profoundly threaded truth… don’t miss this book. Seriously.

  9. Amanda Tero

    That looks interesting! Thanks for having the giveaway!

    This weekend I’m reading Kim Vogel Sawyer’s “Bringing Maggie Home.” I’m a little over halfway and it’s such a GREAT read! Here’s the first line:
    Mid-July 1943
    “Hazel set a porcelain cup and saucer on the overturned apple crate in front of her little sister. ‘Madam, would you like cream and sugar in your tea?'”

    Intriguing! I do like a good Amish Suspense story. 😀

    My first line is from Pam Hillman’s The Promise of Breeze Hill:

    “Connor O’Shea braced his boots against the auction block and glared at the crowd gathered on the landing.”

    “Something wasn’t right. Rylee Monroe unclipped the leash from Romeo’s collar, then stood still in the quiet kitchen, all senses alert.” From Beguiled by Deeanne Gist and Mark Bertrand.

  13. Trisha

    ohh.. great line!
    My first line this week is from Vow Unbroken by Caryl McAdoo
    “He took the pinch of cotton Sue offered and rubbed it between his short, pudgy fingers.”

  14. Nicole Santana

    I’m currently in the middle of reading Rule of Law by Randy Singer. It’s not typically a genre (military/legal) I read, but it’s so engaging. Here’s the first line:

    “They descended like vultures from the C-17 transport plane, silhouettes against a quarter moon in a tar-black sky.”
