First Line Friday
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 Detective by Day Mystery
by Kellye Garrett
This week's line is:
“He stared at my resume like it was an SAT question. One of the hard ones where you just bubbled in C and kept it moving.”
This week I took some time to do LOTS of reading and some fixes for the next few weeks posts. This has been one of the funniest cozy mysteries I have read this past month and I hope it makes you laugh a bit!

“You, sir, are a rogue!” Emily Payne scowled into the black marble gaze fixed on hers, determined to win the deadlock of stares. Horrid Beast.
I’m listening (Again) to Brentwood’s Ward by Michelle Griep. If any of you have read it, you know who she’s talking to!
Have a great weekend Bree!
Sounds like a book I’ll have to check out!
I’ve got the first line from “Chasing Secrets” by Lynette Eason on the blog today, but I’ve just finished reading “A Rose So Fair” by Myra Johnson, so I’m going to share the first line from that here:
“Now just you hold it right there, mister.” Rose Linwood sighted her unwelcome visitor down the length of Grandpa’s trusty Winchester.
She’s a spunky one!
Looks like I have another book to check out! Thanks for sharing!
I’m featuring “Healing Love” by Jennifer Slattery on my blog today, but I’m currently reading “A Name Unknown” by Roseanna M. White.
Rosemary Gresham may have been a thief, but she was a thief who preferred to work in broad daylight.
Happy Friday! 🙂
You always have the most interesting books!
Happy Friday! My first line is from An Alaskan Christmas by Belle Calhoune: “Finn O’Rourke paced back and forth in terminal 27A of the Anchorage airport.”
Great first line! Did you see that Ellery Adams has a new Book Retreat mystery coming out next spring? So excited!
This week on my blog I’m sharing the first line from The Promise of Breeze Hill by Pam Hillman. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Sounds like it’s going to be sassy from the first line. I like books with attitude! 🙂
My first line is:
“23 July 1955
There was going to be a funeral.” ~ Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz
Dinh@Arlene’s Book Club
Just when I think I have enough cozy mysteries on the Kindle for a while, you go and post a new one that I am interested in. Happy Reading!
My first line comes from Hold the Light by April McGowan.
“Unremarkable. Amber glanced out the steaming windowpane at the cityscape below her.”
I imagine I would like cozy mysteries. 🙂
This weekend I’m reading Kim Vogel Sawyer’s “Bringing Maggie Home.” I’m a little over halfway and it’s such a GREAT read! Here’s the first line:
“Hazel set a porcelain cup and saucer on the overturned apple crate in front of her little sister. ‘Madam, would you like cream and sugar in your tea?'”
Hehe – yes, I remember those kinds of questions that this first line is talking about!
That’s a great cover!
Standing in her kitchen in Tinker’s Cove, Maine, where she was cooking up a big pot of clam chowder base she planned to freeze for easy summer suppers, Lucy Stone knew she was in the final countdown.
