First Line Friday

Hello Friday and hello readers! I’ve been working on making a photo logo for my time with First Line Fridays, but the software I am using is not exactly doing what I am telling it to. Very frustrating! I would love to hear tips or great programs if you currently use one!

As for reading, I continue to read whenever I can. I have so many books to read this month it’s almost overwhelming. Almost. But they are so good I really cannot complain. This week I’m sharing a thriller from Terri Blackstock. I am in love with this series and cannot wait until the third book comes out. You’ll be biting your nails and sitting on the edge of your seat, trust me!

And now it’s time for this weeks #firstlinefriday!

This weeks first line is from If I’m Found

The police lights in my rearview mirror are the most petrifying sight in the world.

I would think that too if I had police lights behind me, and I have. It was a family trip to my mom’s in Georgia. We were coming home, and stopping by a friend’s house who lived in Virginia. Let’s just say my foot got a little too pushy with the gas pedal, and Mr. Policeman found out. I’m not proud. My daughter thought it was hilarious. Anyway, enough about me. If you want to know what is happening in this story,  order your copy here! But make sure you read book one first!

  1. I’m totally hooked on this series too!

    I have the first line of Tosca Lee’s ‘Firstborn’ on my blog, but here I’m going to share the first line of “Wings of the Wind” by Connilyn Cossette:

    “Forging through the teeming mass of Canaanite soldiers in this vast army camp, I’d never felt more alone.”

  2. Sounds like a good book!
    On my page I’m sharing the first line from Such a Hope by Sondra Kraak. However, here I’m going to share the first line of book on my TBR stack; “The Miracle of the Seventh-day Ox” by Bradley Booth: “Nickolia Panchuk stared at the four walls of the jail cell around him. The cold gray concrete made him feel as if he were in a tomb–cold and frightened and alone.”

  3. The first line from A Love So True by Melissa Jagears.
    If David Kingsman had any chance of making his father proud, this next decision could be it.

  5. My first line comes from an advance read of a book that will have a permanent home on my “favorite books” shelf. THE ASTONISHING THING by Sandi Ward releases in November. It’s so clever and touching…told from the point of view of a cat, Boo, who is trying to solve the disappearance of her human mom and help her family heal. So, so sweet! “Let me tell you about my mother.” (Mainstream with references to faith, 99% clean)

  6. This sounds really good!
    My first line is from True to You by Becky Wade:
    “Finding oneself at the mercy of a crazed gunman isn’t all fun and games.”

  7. Sounds like a great series! 🙂

    My first line comes from Live Free or Die by Hunter Lee.

  9. Great first line!!

    Last night was my brother’s college graduation, so while I was waiting for the 200+ students before him to get their diplomas, I read “Love at First Bark” (Dana Mentink). It was short and amusing. 🙂 The first line…er…paragraph… was great…

    “Marcy Deveraux was surprised to discover she didn’t actually miss the prince very much. The naked truth was, he’d been high maintenance with all that dark broodiness and not much of a sense of humor to speak of. By the end of their time together, he’d even gotten on her nerves just the tiniest bit. Still, Prince Rafe’s departure left her at a loss. It was not as though His Royal Highness was required to save anyone else from assassination, and it had been twelves months since that perilous jungle crossing, complete with poisonous spiders and the one-eyed bandit. The prince had survive more adventures than could be expected of anyone, fictional or not, and he deserved his happy ending.
    So now what?
    Marcy chewed her pencil eraser, staring at the blank pages of her notebook as the summer wind rattled the cabin windows.”
