Posted December 21, 2023 by meezcarrie in Christian, Christmas, contemporary, First Line Fridays, mystery/suspense, romance, Roxanne Rustand / 6 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 continuing all things Christmas & featuring the first line of Deadly Noel by Roxanne Rustand! Romantic suspense is my fave genre, and I’ve had my eye on this series!

Deadly Noel by Roxanne Rustand

and the first lines of Deadly Noel are…

When Mrs. Yvonne Weatherfield hesitated at the corner of Poplar and Main, spared one disdainful glance at her and kept on walking, Sara Hanrahan knew she was finally home.

She also wished she wasn’t.


Texas DEA Special Agent Sara Hanrahan has returned to her small, northern Minnesota hometown on a dangerous assignment. She doesn’t expect to encounter a deputy who represents every reason she left home years ago.

Given her family’s dark past and the secrets she must keep, her assignment is fraught with danger…and also means she must deal with the deputy whose family tried to destroy her own. There couldn’t be a more unlikely relationship.

But perhaps some very special mistletoe and a little boy’s heart full of hope can help even the most impossible dreams come true.

Start reading now…and stay up all night!

    I have had my eye on this series, too. I just started Fragile Designs by Colleen Coble. The first line is:
    Pawley’s Island
    Another wave of nausea hit Carly Harris the minute she opened her car door and got out in the garage.
    Merry Christmas, Carrie, to you and your family!

    Hello! I am back! I’ve missed FLF because I had an old evice that wasn’t playing nice. Now that my new ipad with updated software is working on WordPress accounts I can post again! Yay!
    My first few lines today are from The Paris Housekeeper by Renee Ryan:
    14 June 1940
    Paris, France
    Paris was out of time.
    The French government knew it. The people knew it.

    The text message on Leah Dean’s phone stopper her short.

  4. Happy Friday!
    I am currently reading Spies Don’t Fall for Their Asset by Meg Easton. It’s a super cute story!
    “As fun as Addi is, and as great of a distraction as she is, I’m sad that I’m not in a car with Jace right now. Especially because I’ve been hoping for more time with him so I can figure out if things between us are okay.”
    I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of relaxing reading time! 😀

    I know I am a bit late for the first line Friday. I’m reading “Shadows of Swanford Abbey” by Julie Klassen. The first line is “Miss Rebecca Lane quaked at the thought of returning to Swanford after more than a year’s absence, even though her heart had never really left.”
