First Line Friday – Fragments of Fear

Welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books! How has your week been? It is crazy in this little town I live in. For those of you who don’t know, I live in Cooperstown – home to the Baseball Hall of Fame. And for you non-baseball fans, this weekend is the induction ceremony. There’s some big names being inducted this year, so we’ll likely have record breaking numbers (I’m talking over 70,000 visitors to our little village). It is a nightmare! Plus we’re in the midst of a major heat wave – having a heat index over 100 is not too common for Central NY. So my plan is to stay home, and hopefully get some reading done 🙂

Today I am featuring the first line from a new release from Carrie Stuart Parks – Fragments of Fear. I’m just starting to read this, but will have my review up on Tuesday, so be sure to come back and check out my thoughts!

“Evelyn Yvonne McTavish – Tavish to her friends – clenched the red long-stemmed rose and stared at the glossy casket.”

Now it’s your turn to share your first line! Grab the book nearest to you and share the first line in the comments. Don’t forget  to check out what everyone else is reading at Hoarding Books!

  1. Happy Friday!

    On my blog I’m sharing the first line from Underestimating Miss Cecelia by Carolyn Miller:

    Today, I’m currently reading The Spice King by Elizabeth Camden. It’s an excellent story that I highly recommend! I’m just starting chapter 34, so I’ll share from there.

    “Gray rarely took the time to read The Washington Post first thing in the morning.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend!!! 😀❤📚

  2. MacKinac County, Michigan
    As Noah bolted out of Robert’s pickup, he spied flames devouring the brush outside the fire pit. There’s been an unusual warm spell for the area, leaving conditions dry. He heard the ski resorts needed to make snow. He shook his head at such nonsense.
    PLAIN EVERYDAY HEROES by Laura V. Hilton, Rachel J. Good and Thomas Nye

  3. Aren’t thrillers supposed to start with a body, not the funeral?

    I’m sharing the first line from Underestimating Miss Cecilia by Carolyn Miller on my blog today – it seems to be a popular choice!

    I’m currently reading Fatal Strike by DiAnn Mills. Here’s the first line:

    Special Agent Leah Riesel scanned the headlines on her phone.

    That’s a little underwhelming, but the first chapter includes a shoot-out in a hostage situation, so it ramps up the action quickly.

    Happy reading!

  4. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Kate’s Song” by Jennifer Beckstrand:

    “Is he dead? Please tell me he’s not dead!”

  5. Happy Friday! Since I’m sharing from chapter 1 of Yours Truly, Thomas by Rachel Fordham on my blog today, here is the first line from the prologue:

    “After letting an involuntary squeal escape, Penny pulled the yellowed papers closer and pressed her lips to them.

  6. I’m reading this one right now too! 🙂
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from Storm Rising by Ronie Kendig but I’m currently reading Fragments of Fear by Carrie Stuart Parks so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (8) here: “Marley was sitting by the door in the living room when Travis returned.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of reading time! 🙂

  7. An intriguing opening line! I’m sharing on my blog the first line from At First Spark by Liwen Y. Ho.

    Darren Spark never imagined that one person could make him feel so happy and sad all at the same time.

  8. Looking forward to Carrie’s book!
    My first line is from The Crossing of Cypress Creek by Pam Hillman
    Natchez Under-the-Hill on the Mississippi River, August 1792
    Caleb O’Shea jerked awake to utter stillness.

    Great series!
