Death By Chocolate Lab

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

Death By Chocolate Lab

Lucky Paws Petsitting Mystery

by Bethany Blake

This week's line is:

“I was walking three powerful rottweilers, but I was pretty sure they weren’t really to blame for my being pulled down the street like a drunken water-skier behind an erratic boat.”

Now envision this first line in your mind, gotcha smiling didn’t it? Well, I certainly enjoyed reading this book and you can find my thoughts here.

Now it's Your Turn

    I bet there’s a great interview with the author here. Between the humor, the mystery, and that clever title, there’s got to be a great behind-the-scenes story there.

    I just got done reading this book last night. It is a clean book other than some mild violence and idol worship – which was typical back than) full of adventure, action, and romance set in the bronze age of the Middle East. Religious undertones pertaining to the offspring of Ishmael. This is the second book in the series. I gave it 5 stars.
