First Line Friday
Scheduled to Death
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…

My first line for the week comes from Tea and Sympathy by Carol Cox:
“Kate Hanlon settled back into the pillows propped against the headboard of her bed and stared down at her lap. The tray resting on her knees contained a steaming mug of tea and a plate holding one slice of lightly buttered toast.”
Happy reading and happy Friday!
I love the title of this book, sounds like a good book!
It was an autumn of particular intensity.–Egg Drop Dead by Laura Childs.
This is such a good book!
I loved this book! Hope you enjoy it 🙂
Welcome to the fun, Bree!!!
“Your relation to the inmate?”
Maybe It’s You by Candace Calvert
Haha, I love this line. Just enough to make a reader want to know the answer.
Welcome to the crazy! 🙂
My first line at the moment comes from Erica Vetsch’s My Heart Belongs in Fort Bliss Texas – “Only the army would think a place like this worth defending.”
Love it, Erica always has such great first lines.
Welcome to the First Line Family! ???? I think I might need to get some website tips from you. Your site looks great!
My first line this week is from Regina Jennings’ “For The Record”:
Only a limited patch of Earth could claim the privilege of belonging to Texas. Not that he despised the rest of the world for its misfortune, but there was a difference.
Have a good week 🙂
Oh this sounds good!
Katie, thank you for the compliment on my website, it has been a project of love!
I started a new book today. Very sad so far. I had to put it down for a bit.
First Line from “Stars in the Grass” by Ann Marie Stewart
Prologue- I spent the better part of my childhood sitting on a pew in the balcony of Bethel Springs First Presbyterian Church, listening to my dad’s long vowels as he preached on predestination.
It sounds like a great book, though a bit heavy, thanks for sharing!
Long vowels, I love it!
Better late than never.
“You shouldn’t be here.” With gentle authority, Julianne Chevalier ushered a man twice her age to the doorway of his young wife’s lying-in chamber.
`Mark of the King by Jocelyn Green
LOVE This booK!!!!!
Such an intriguing first line. Makes me wonder what the business is and why the person doesn’t like/use the word “hoarder.”
The first line I’m sharing today is from Roseanna M. White’s “The Lost Heiress”: Tempation sat before her, compelling as the sea.
If you like mysteries, this book might be your cup of tea.
This series is a hoot and full of great suspense and tips!
Hi Bree! We meet again! *snicker*
My first line comes from Redeeming Grace by Jill Eileen Smith.
Naomi lifted the hem of her robe as her feet fairly flew down Bethlehem’s streets toward the outskirts of town.
Andi, I swear lol we have a great mind between us haha. Love your first line!
