Final First Line Friday (of March)

I don’t know about you, but it’s been a long winter where I live and I am ready for March to go! Although we got three feet of a snow a couple weeks ago, a lot of it has melted away and I’m able to see little spots of grass here and there. I can almost remember what it feels like to have a green lawn again. So goodbye March, and (hopefully) goodbye winter. Well, until I see the weather report which says ice and snow with a winter advisory until Saturday. But I’m choosing to pretend I never saw it….we’re going to have sunny 50 degree weather. One day.

So the final first line Friday of March comes from someone who has an awesome name. Jessica Patch. See I told you her name was cool 🙂 Final Verdict comes out on Saturday, so be sure to preorder it. I’ll have the review Saturday for you too! It’s full of suspense and will keep you on your toes.

And now it’s time……. (enter drumroll)

This weeks first line from


Final Verdict (Love Inspired Suspense) by [Patch, Jessica R.]

Aurora Daniels inhaled the scent of justice wafting through the courtroom.

What does the scent of justice smell like exactly? You can determine that for yourself. To find out more about Aurora and what she’s gotten herself into, preorder the book here, wait for Saturday to get here (it’s only one day!!) and start reading!

  1. Good morning! 🙂 My first line is from Chapter 2 because the first line of Chapter 1 was very lengthy!

    “Matthew Cuthbert and the sorrel mare jogged comfortably over the eight miles to Bright River.” ~Anne of Green Gables ~Lucy Maud Montgomery

  2. Final Verdict sounds good!
    My first line is from For the Love of Grace by Kimberly Rae Jordan
    “Grace Anderson stared straight ahead at the white wall of a small hospital room.”

      1. Her parents died; then her grandmother died; and now her husband died. And the grief is overwhelming her.

  3. Prologue

    Dublin, Ireland, 1916

    She heard it before she felt it. Harsh air sucking through clenched teeth, the grunt of an arm raised, the soft swish of a hand slicing the air. – A HEART REVEALED by Julie Lessman

    Happy Friday and Happy Reading!

  4. My Grandma has several Love Inspired suspense. I’m going to see if I can’t get my hands on them soon. 😉 Neat first line, though.

  5. My first line from Charles Martin’s Long Way Gone:
    “I’d seen him before.”

  6. I just told Bree that it has been ages since I have read a Love Inspired Suspense. I seem to always read the Love Inspired Historical series…so, I will have to pick this book up. 🙂

  7. My first line is: “Lucy knew she was going to regret this.”

    ~Love, Lies & Typewriters: A Wartime Western Romance Novella
    by Heather Blanton

  8. My first encounter with light as more than illumination from a flashlight was on our homestead in Alaska at age five.
    Introduction to Who Told You That You Were Naked by William E Combs

  9. “Bernadette had been dead two weeks when her sisters showed up in Doyle’s living room asking for the statue back.” – Run by Ann Patchett.

  10. The fact that the character defines the smell as “justice” and not “persecution” or “condemnation” or some other negative description, tells me she isn’t the one on trial and she is enjoying the process taking place. Great first line. 🙂
