First Line Friday - September 22, 2017

It's Friday again! I hope you had a good week. My week went by very quickly. I spent a few days at the beach where I got some quality reading time.

My first line today is from True to You by Becky Wade.



"Finding oneself at the mercy of a crazed gunman isn't all fun and games."

Now it's your turn! Grab the book you are reading or that is closest to you and leave the first line in the comments then head over to the blogs listed below to see what others are sharing this week.

  1. I've read this - I think it's one of the best books I've read this year. Yes, the first line certainly grabbed me and kept me reading.

    I'm sharing from Hold the Light by April McGowan over on my blog today, and I’ve just started reading what I’m told is an excellent writing craft book, Understanding Show, Don’t Tell by Janice Hardy. It starts well:

    Show, don’t tell is one of the most frustrating pieces of writing advice out there.

    I’m looking forward to understanding it better!

  2. Loved this book! And what a great first line!

    I'm featuring the first line from J. Rodes' "Charging the Darkness" on my blog today--great conclusion to her dystopian trilogy--but right now I'm going to share the opening of Rachel Dylan's recent release, "Deadly Proof":

    "You can't call that a settlement offer." Kate Sullivan looked directly into the dark eyes of her opposing counsel, who represented a medical device company.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. I listened to that book on my drive home from CFRR in August. It was wonderful!
    Here's what I'm sharing today.
    How dare the stars still light the night and the James River continue to flow, when the one who made Lettie’s life bearable was gone?
    This is the first line from chapter 1 (not the prologue) of Carrie Fancett Pagels novella “Love’s Escape” in The Captive Brides Collection.
