First Line Friday (week 161): Murder in the Family

Posted September 20, 2019 by meezcarrie in Christian, contemporary, First Line Fridays, mystery/suspense, romance / 20 Comments

Happy Friday! And welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books!!! Since it’s Friday, it’s time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line. Today, I’m featuring Murder in the Family by Ramona Richards!

And the first lines are…

“Aunt Liz, you can’t keep doing this. It’s going to get you killed.”

And it had.


Greed Poisons Even The Sweetest Well

Storm chaser Molly McClelland must return to her small Alabama hometown when she unexpectedly inherits her hoarder aunt’s house . . . and all of its contents. Despite her suspicions that her aunt was murdered, Molly wants nothing more than to sell everything and get back to the life she loves. Especially once her homecoming reignites the decades-old family conflict that drove her away in the first place. But when Molly uncovers caches of cash, journals revealing secrets-and a body-amongst the stockpiles, she finds herself locked in a cat-and-mouse dance with a deadly endgame.

Molly teams with local sheriff, Greg Olson, to find the truth. But will her determination and his skills be enough, or will the killer-or killers-put an end to their efforts once and for all?

    Looks like a good book! I’ve added it to my goodreads reading list 🙂

    Here’s what I’m reading…
    “Three hours into Saturday night dinner service and she was already running on fumes.”
    The Saturday Night Supper Club by Carla Laureano.

    Happy Friday!!

    I’m sharing the first 2 lines from Foremost by Jody Hedlund.
    I crouched next to Edmund behind the boulder. The harpy eagle circled overhead, her gray-and-white markings blending with the frosty winter sky.

    My first lines are from Undercover Twin by Heather Woodhaven

    Audrey Clark adjusted her crossbody bag as she stepped out, under the cover of stars. The atmosphere matched her mood, dark and uncomfortable

    This sounds like a great book! I will check it out! I just finished Covert Christmas Twin by Heather Woodhaven and started Always Look Twice by Elizabeth Goddard and this is the first line;
    Monday, 7:35 P.M.
    Bridger-Teton National Forest, Wyoming
    Harper Reynolds inched forward, hoping she hadn’t made a mistake in coming there.

    Since I just finished this one this morning, I’ll give the first line in it. Great book!
    “Is your little boy all right, Mr. Baker? He’s as white as a bedsheet.
    ALL HE’LL EVER NEED by Loree Lough

  6. Hope you feel better soon <3
    Today on my blog I shared from Something Needs to Change by David Platt. Right now I'm about to start The Killing Tide by Dani Pettrey so I'll share the first line from that here: "Fire ripped through Finn's right shoulder, ricocheting down his arm." Hope you have a great weekend!

    Happy Friday! My first line(s) is from “I Don’t Chase the Garbage Truck Down the Street in My Bathrobe Anymore!” by Dianne Barker:

    “Weddings make me laugh. It’s that pledge to the spouse, “All my worldly good I thee endow.” If my husband had only known!”

  8. That cover! That first line! I think I need to read this book.
    I’m sharing from Aiming for Love by Mary Connealy on my blog today, so I’ll share the second line:

    “She smiled inside, but kept the emotion tucked away.”

    Happy reading and have a great weekend!

  9. That cover! That first line! I may just have to read this book. 😀

    I’m sharing from Aiming for Love by Mary Connealy on my blog today, so I’ll share the second line:

    “She smiled inside, but kept the emotion tucked away.”

    Happy reading and have a great weekend!
