First Line Friday
Murder for the Time Being
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…

Wow! What a first line!
Since I have so many wonderful first lines to choose from at the moment, I’m going to share a different one here than on my blog. It’s the first line from Varina Denman’s ‘Looking Glass Lies’:
“I woke up in the middle of the night in our cavernous walk-in closet. Again.”
I love this book! Great choice in the first line!
Happy Friday (is it really?)!! My first line is from a nonfiction book that is being released on May 2nd, Women Who Move Mountains by Sue Detweiler: ” ‘Get my baby out!’ I screamed with a raspy voice.”
And one of my favorite quotes: “Every day we have the opportunity to agree with God & allow His perspective to flood us with His hope. It’s like having a pressure washer in your mind.”
