It’s FRIDAY! Hooray!!

And 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 Missing by Lisa Harris. It’s the second book in her Nikki Boyd series and I can’t wait to sit down and read it!!


And the first line is….

“Nikki Boyd slid out of her white Mini Cooper as two bagged bodies were being wheeled from the one-story house nestled in one of Nashville’s nicer suburbs.”

Off to a suspenseful start right off the bat!

So… what’s your First Line on this Friday?

Let me know in the comments and then head over to share your First Line with these friends:

    I’m in between books right now. So no first line. Just trying to decide which book to read next. I have sooooooooo many waiting. Oh the pains of summer reading time!?

      • Marylin Furumasu

        Okay I chose one. A Reason to Run by Christina Coryell.
        “It starts innocently enough – two boys whispering, the sound of feet scuffling in the background, someone laughing, a hissed command to be quiet.”
        And that’s all I’ve read all far…..We’ll see. Looks promising!

    Malachi Shaw made the arduous climb back into consciousness with great effort. No Other Will Do by Karen Witemeyer It just arrived in my mailbox a few minutes ago!


  3. Nice! Looks like a great suspense read!

    Here is my first line…

    France, August 1917
    “Are you the Ashby brothers?”
    A Hope Remembered (Of Love and War #3) by Stacy Henrie

    This is a book I’m especially excited to start (but I think I say that about all my books, lol)! First line is from “A Heart Most Certain” by Melissa Jaegers, coming August 2nd!!

    “Lydia King took a tentative step into Mr. Lowe’s hazy office, feeling like Bob Cratchit approaching Scrooge.”

    Oh I so can’t wait to start this book 🙂

    I just discovered that Missing was out (or soon to be out) this week on another blog. I am sooooo excited. And yes, body bags are a great way to start out a suspense.

    “You took your wedding rings off.” Step by Step by Candace Calvert. Love, love, love her books — the angst, the drama, the relationship with each other and the Lord. Happy reader in Canada.

    The royal linen closet is a dark hiding place, but I’m a big girl-almost 5 inundations old- so I’m trying not to be afraid.

    The Pharaoh’s Daughter by Mesu Andrews

    Revisiting a book today (while waiting for the mail to come, hopefully bringing me a new book) First line in Melissa Tagg’s From the Start. “How in the world had rain earned such a romantic rep?”
    Very fitting with the storms we’ve had on and off for the last few days.
    Rain is not romantic, maybe if you’re young and able-bodied, not worried if you slip and fall.

    • Carrie

      i LOVE Melissa’s books!! And yes – lol – i have never understood the appeal of rain and romance haha

  8. Abby Brown

    “Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.”
    – Rebecca, Daphne du Maurier

    “Temptation sat before her, compelling as the sea”
    – The Lost Heiress, Roseanna M. White

    Going back and forth between reading these two right now. I found it interesting that they’re both set in Monte Carlo 🙂
