First Line Friday – The Yellow Lantern

Happy Friday, reader friends! Has anyone been reading and enjoying the True Crimes series from Barbour Books? I haven’t quite got to The Yellow Lantern by Angie Dicken yet, but I’ve been hearing a lot about it lately and it sounds like an intriguing read. And then there’s that first line…

Are you a true crimes kind of reader?

  1. The Yellow Lantern is such a good story!
    My first line this week is from “A Lady’s Maid” by Jen Geigle Johnson
    London, England 1831
    Molly O’Malley’s coal-powder disguise hid her creamy skin and blended with her black-clad form in the shadows of the early morning.


  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Brett, Billionaire Bodyguard” by Autumn Macarthur & Alexa Verde:

    “Brett Jarvis grimaced, yawned, and snatched up his ringing cell phone. Two a.m. phone calls rarely meant good news, especially in his business.”


  3. My first line is from The Killing Tide by Dani Pettrey

    Wrightsville, North Carolina
    “ Fire ripped through Finn’s right shoulder, ricocheting down his arm”


  4. Happy Friday!

    On my blog, I’m sharing the first line from A Dangerous Legacy by Elizabeth Camden: I’m currently on chapter two of A Daring Venture by Camden. I’m on a Camden kick! 😀

    “By the time Rosalind arrived at the crowded Manhattan restaurant to meet Mr. Drake, her nerves were wound as tight as a piano wire.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend! 😀❤📚


  5. Happy Friday!
    On my blog today I’m sharing the first few lines from A Glitter of Gold by Liz Johnson but I’m currently reading Whose Waves These Are by Amanda Dykes so I’ll share the first line from chapter 24 here: “Bess’s words travel with Annie down to the landing.” This book is soo good so far! Hope you have a great weekend!
