First Line Fridays — Seconds to Live

Happy Friday and Happy New Year, reader friends! Anyone else feeling a bit lost after two weeks of midweek holidays?! I’ve just started reading a book I had planned to get to last month, Seconds to Live by Susan Sleeman!

First Line:
One Mistake. That was all it took to put Dustee’s life on the line—death right on her heels.


So far I have to say I’m impressed with Sleeman’s work (this is my first experience with her writing)! The story is intense but not overly terrifying which is especially good news for me since I’m a bit of a scaredy-cat!

  1. My first line is from The Rebel Bride by Shannon McNear:
    September 20, 1863 Battle of Chickamauga, Northern Georgia
    Not for the first time, Joshua Wheeler wondered if he’d descended into hell.

    Seconds to Live is a great book.
    Happy reading!


  2. I just read that one recently and liked it.

    Today I shared the first line from End Game by Rachel Dylan but I’m currently reading Daughter of Rome by Tessa Afshar so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (22) here: “Like a loose thread in an unfinished weaving, Priscilla’s well-ordered world unraveled by virtue of one capricious judgment.” I’m absolutely LOVING it so far! Hope you have a wonderful weekend with lots of quality reading time! 🙂


  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Because of Him” by Kimberly Rae Jordan:

    “Kieran Sutherland only just managed to keep from lifting his arm and elbowing the detective seated beside him in the face.”
