  1. Short and to the point! Lol

    First Line from Christmas at Gate 18 by Amy Matayo.
    Maybe the impending storm is putting me in a worse mood than usual, but there are only so many times a girl can repeat the exact same question in the exact same way to the exact same person without feeling her mind begin to unravel.

    Yes, that is the first line. Lol

    My first line is from the book I’m reading next, Like Moonlight at Low Tide by Nicole Quigley….

    People never ask me the right question when they ask me what happened the beginning of my senior year. They always ask what his last words were.

    Have a great weekend!!

  5. I have two books. The one nearest me was my own since I am thinking of adding a scene to it. The first line from Honor Respect Devotion,”Mark. Nine O’clock. Mark. Nine o’clock.” The flight mechanic’s voice jumped at Jake Travis Osborne. “Two people in the water. Two survivors at nine o’clock.” The book I am reading is Family Plot by Sheri Cobb South, a regency historical mystery,and the first line is “The opening night performance was over.”

    Detective Brett Sawyer pressed his index finger to his lips, hoping the motion would prevent his friend and author, Lexie Sloan, from showing any signs of recognizing him.
