First Line Friday (and a Giveaway!): Lights Out

Posted December 9, 2021 by meezcarrie in Christian, contemporary, First Line Fridays, giveaway, mystery/suspense, Natalie Walters, romance / 8 Comments

Happy Friday & welcome to the First Line Friday link-up! It’s time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line. Today, I’m featuring the first line of Lights Out by Natalie Walters, currently on tour with JustRead Publicity Tours, LLC (the company I own with my book sisters).

and the first line is…

Seif El-Deeb watched the noisy trio of American boys cross the street away from Cairo American College.


CIA analyst Brynn Taylor developed a new program to combat terrorism, and she invited members of foreign intelligence agencies to America to foster cooperation between countries. Now one of them, Egyptian spy Remon Riad, is missing.

Jack Hudson has been working for the Strategic Neutralization and Protection Agency (SNAP) for almost nine years and takes the lead in hunting down the missing spy. But he isn’t at all pleased to find out Brynn is involved. It’s hard to trust a woman who’s already betrayed you.

Every lead they follow draws them dangerously deeper into an international plot. Kidnapping, murder, explosions, poisoning–the terrorists will do anything to accomplish their goal of causing a digital blackout that will blind a strategic US military communications center and throw the world into chaos.

Can Brynn surrender control to a man who doesn’t trust her? And can Jack ever get over what she did to him? The fate of the world–and their hearts–hangs in the balance.

    Riley Reynolds heard them moments before she saw them. People were singing Christmas songs, different Christmas songs, all at the same time, in exuberant, joyful voices.

    Lights Out was a fantastic book!
    My first line comes from Elinor by Shannon McNear:
    “In the beginning was the sea.” She murmured.
