First Line Friday

A Perfect Manhattan Murder

It’s FRIDAY which means I get to share a great line once a week with your from a book I am reading. I found this to be an exciting and entertaining way to find new authors, books and bloggers. So I am opening up the book I have been reading this week, and going to the first chapter and finding the first line…

This Weeks First Line Friday Brought to You By

A Perfect Manhattan Murder

A Nic & Nigel Mystery

by Tracy Kiely

This week's line is:

“Nigel, darling”, I said as I readjusted the beaded strap of my biased cut gown, “If you poke me with that thing one more time, I’m going to beat you over the head with it.”

This line is cheeky and fun, it stays PG promise,and the book is a flawless 5 star for me. I have the review up today, and a giveaway with it! Come on over to the review to see my thoughts and enter.

Now it's Your Turn

Open the book nearest you and post the first line of the first chapter in the comments below, I would love to see into the book you are reading.

    Lol! I could see how that could be taken the wrong way…

    I have the first line from Erynn Newman’s debut release ‘Out of Darkness’ on my blog, but here I’m going to share the first line from Johnnie Alexander’s latest release, ‘What Hope Remembers’:

    “The June sun beat on Gabe Kendall’s bare head and tapped into his childhood memories of the horse farm.”

    Happy Friday!

    Haha, man. Nice first line!

    Here’s mine. Judy Hedlund’s For Love & Honor: “You have one month to pay the debt,” Captain Foxe stated, his tone as rigid as the plate armor he wore.

    I love a funny first line. Immediately draws me in 🙂

    Today I shared the first line from Unblemished by Sara Ella. It is outside the norm for me, but so far so good!

    I thought I’d share something different here than the book featured on my blog today. This book is one my son is reading.
