  1. m featuring Hurricane Season by Lauren Denton on my blog today, but I’m going to share the first line from the book I’m currently reading. Here’s the first line from A Chance at Forever by Melissa Jagears:

    “I wish you luck, George.”
    “It’s Aaron now. Don’t forget.” Aaron Firebrook tried not to let Mr. Gray’s slip of the tongue make him even more nervous.

  5. I’m sharing the first two lines from A Most Noble Heir by Susan Anne Mason on my blog today. Here, I will post the first line from the novel I’m currently reading, Beneath the Surface by Lynn H. Blackburn.

    “Homicide investigator Ryan Parker flashed a thumbs-up to his dive buddy and fellow homicide investigator, Gabe Chavez.”

    Let me tell you, that thumbs-up quickly becomes a thumbs-down!!! This book is really gripping. I can’t figure it out!!! 😄 Happy Friday!

  7. My first lines come from Our Alternate Ending by Katie Fox. “I was going to be late, and there wasn’t a damn thing I could do about it. Staring down at the cheap, knock-off Rolex strapped to my wrist, I watched as another minute passed by, the small hand reminding me time was clearly not on my side.”

    I’d love you to stop by my blog. I’m featuring Alta Hensley’s Devils & Rye there today!

  9. I shared the first line of Finding Evergreen by Jennifer Rodewald today, my current read. Here are a couple lines from chapter 3 of the same book: “Heat swirled through the kitchen, almost to the degree that it continued burning in Ethan’s chest. Sleep hadn’t overtaken his storming emotions the night before.”
