And the first line of the prologue is…

The man staring back at me looks old.


Sometimes we’re placed in the strangest of circumstances for the most important reasons.

After her carefully constructed life crumbles, Liz Carlisle finds herself back on Nantucket, picking up the pieces. With the family estate under renovations, the solitude she craves seems out of reach.

Matthew Stone intends to steer clear of his new tenant. She’s carrying a load of baggage, but as long as she pays the rent, he’ll let her be. He’s got enough to deal with caring for his wayward niece, Mia.

Liz doesn’t have time for teenagers and her track record with men is abysmal, but an unlikely friendship forms between the three.

When her former boyfriend is charged with assault, Liz is called to testify against him. But he knows the darkest secrets of her life—secrets she’d hoped to keep buried forever, and he’s ready to reveal them. Telling the truth is the right thing to do, but it may cost her everything she’s worked so hard for, and all she’s come to love.

    I am reading Dark Ambitions by Irene Hannon. I am skipping the Prologue and giving the first line from Chapter 1.
    There was blood on the ice.

    If the rancid coffee was an indication of the day ahead, perhaps Joy Kelliher should have stayed in bed.

    London, 1855
    I have long abhorred black. It is a great abyss, sucking in the colours of the rainbow and wringing the life from them.
    First two lines from The Old Lace Shop by Michelle Griep. It is available in Once Upon a Dickens Christmas

    My current read is the Once Upon a Christmas novella collection. This is the first line of the first novella in the collection: Upon a Dream by Andrea Boyd (Sleeping Beauty retelling!)
    “Something was amiss.”

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “Hold Me” by Alexa Verde:

    “Aileen McKenzie might not make it.”

  6. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line from Finders Keepers by Sarah Monzon: It’s such a good book. Currently, I am reading book 2 in the series, All of You, so I will share a line from there.

    “England, 1944
    The gangplank bounced under the weight of passengers disembarking the large transatlantic liner — a veritable Goliath to the small David-like tugboats dotting the harbor.”

    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading!
