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 The Case of the Artist’s Mistake by Jan Drexler. I really enjoyed the first book in this series, and I can’t wait to read this one too!
and the first line is…
“It looks like you need this,” Becky said as she thrust a mug into my hand.
The new art gallery in town is causing quite a stir, and Emma is in the middle of it!
The Sweetbrier Inn is filled with guests, and the town is teeming with tourists who have come to celebrate Paragon Days, the official kickoff to the summer tourist season. But even before the festivities start, amateur sleuth Emma Blackwood stumbles upon a dead body. With no visible signs of violence, Deputy Cal determines the death is from natural causes, but Emma isn’t so sure. Why would a seemingly healthy woman drop dead? And what does the picture she was holding have to do with it? If Emma doesn’t solve this puzzle soon, a killer may get away with committing the perfect crime.

I’m currently reading A King for Christmas by Brooke St. James.
“I looked at my brother, putting the receiver in my lap, and muffling it in my shirt so that James couldn’t hear me.”
I hope you have a great weekend! Happy reading!
Laura gulped and stood rooted to the spot.

My first line today is from Millstone of Doubt by Erica Vetsch:
Thorndike House- London- March 1, 1816
The problem with concealing a weapon beneath a day dress at a social gathering became all too apparent to Lady Juliette Thorndike the moment she sat beside the Dowager Duchess of Haverly.
It was a Bitter February night in northern Minnesota from Danny Orlis and the Contrary Mrs. Forester. Published in 1958…
Looks like a fun read! I’m currently re-reading The Nature of a Lady by Roseanna M White and the first line is: “He was a prince at sea.” Have a great week!
